Confrontation through Art - REMIX

Cyprus : Confrontation through Art - REMIX

The Bi-communal project “Confrontation through Art”, funded by the European Union and realized by Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot artists and curators (Nicosia 2014-2017), has the pleasure of inviting you to the opening of its final exhibition “CtA – REMIX” at Technopolis 20 gallery in Paphos, on Wednesday, 27th of September 2017, at 19:30.

The exhibition presents a rich selection of visual artworks (painting, sculpture, installation, video-art) created by Cypriot and European artists who participated in five different 10-day group art-residencies for research and work, organized by Confrontation through Art.

In total 40 European artists / curators, including 16 Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, were hosted in three art-residencies in old Nicosia, one in Athens and one in 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.

CtA – REMIX is a true remix of experiences, reflections, challenges, actions and discussions, given as feedback to the CtA programme, restructured and refocused on the juxtaposition of visual and social deliberations through art. At the same time it creates an autonomous exhibit providing social and artistic meaning to the public.

Alongside the exhibition, the tri-lingual catalogue (Greek, Turkish, and English) is presented, published in June 2017, including analytical notes, curatorial concepts, critical scholarly texts and a multitude of photographic material covering all the actions of Confrontation through Art programme, offered free of charge.

The five art-residencies formed part of the broader bi-communal project Confrontation through Art / Αντιπαράθεση μέσω Τέχνης / Sanat aracılığıyla Yüzleşme which 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. The project aimed to contribute to the enhancement of peaceful co-existence, tolerance and creative problem-solving awareness and skills within artistic circles and other diverse segments of the Cypriot communities. It focused on bringing together young and mature artists to discuss, produce and express views on the Cyprus problem and related social challenges.

The CtA - Remix exhibition is supported by the NGOs EMAA and ROOFTOP Theatre group, and the Cultural Services of the Republic of Cyprus.
