Remix - Confrontation through Art

Cyprus : Remix - Confrontation through Art

A group exhibition by Greek-Cypriot, Turkish-Cypriot & European artists

CtA - REMIX is an exhibition that presents a selection of the resulting artworks of five Artists’ Residencies Programmes, which took place between 2015 and 2016 in Nicosia(3), Athens(1) and Berlin(1), with the participation of Greek-Cypriot, Turkish-Cypriot and European artists (34 in total). The Cyprus-centred concept of the residencies inspired the artists to research and self-express, highlighting their aesthetic, experiential and evolutionary results in practice, within the scope and vision of the original artworks produced.

CtA–REMIX is a true remix of experiences, reflections, challenges, actions and discussions, given as feedback by each residency to the CtA Programme, restructured and refocused on the juxtaposition of visual and social deliberations through art. Furthermore, it is an a posteriori remix of artworks, archive material and publications, giving the exhibition its own autonomous expression, and providing a social and artistic meaning that is friendly to the public.

The five residencies form part of the broader bi-communal project Confrontation through Art / Αντιπαράθεση μέσω Τέχνης / Sanat aracılığıyla Yüzleşme, 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.

Parallel to the exhibition, CtA presents the trilingual catalogue (Greek, Turkish, and English), which was published in June 2017, and includes analytical notes, curatorial concepts, critical scholarly texts and a multitude of photographic material covering all actions concerning the Confrontation through Art programme. The catalogue will be offered free of charge.

Curation: Sylia Panayiotidou, Argyro Toumazou, Ozgul Ezgin, Constantinos Georgiou
