Technopolis 20 Cultural Centre in Paphos will bring cultures, thoughts and observations together on Wednesday with the opening of the exhibition entitled CtA REMIX, the outcome of the bi-communal project Confrontation through Art.
The exhibition – the objective of which is to contribute to the enhancement of peaceful co-existence, tolerance and creative problem-solving – will present a rich selection of visual artworks created by Cypriot and European artists who participated in five, 10-day, group art-residencies for research and work.
A total of 40 European artists and curators, including 16 Greek and Turkish Cypriots, were hosted in three art-residencies in old Nicosia, Athens and Berlin. The Cyprus-centred concept of the art-residencies inspired the artists to research and self-express, highlighting their aesthetic, experiential and evolutionary results in practice, within their own personal scope and vision.
The outcome is this exhibition, which conveys both social and artistic meaning to viewers.
Alongside the exhibition, a tri-lingual catalogue (Greek, Turkish and English) will be presented. The catalogue, free of charge, includes analytical notes, curatorial concepts, critical scholarly texts and a multitude of photographic material covering all the actions of Confrontation through Art programme.
The Confrontation through Art project was developed and implemented by NGOs European Mediterranean Art Association (EMAA) and Rooftop Theatre Group and funded by the European Union under the Cypriot Civil Society in Action programme. It focuses on bringing together young and mature artists to discuss, produce and express views on the Cyprus problem and related social challenges.
