‘X-Nowness’ collective exhibition
The project brings together 38 contemporary artists and art groups, and offers a vision on the concept of time and the so-called ‘nowness’ — the quality or state of existing or occurring in or belonging to the present time.
‘Time is not linear and doesn’t consist of discrete physical points. Rather, it is perceived as a frightening shift, chasing itself, at times running faster or on the contrary falling behind. Nowness itself is followed by its own ghost, some x-unknown. X-nowness can be represented as an innumerable diversity of variations of reality, an area inhabited by ghosts and not linked to any time. This invisible schism is actually a dynamic link between the past and the present, that is felt and exposed by the artists in the physical world. Their artworks exist temporally, as a glimmer between the past and the future, between the reality and the allegories for the reality’ (by Dasha Yartseva, curator)
The exhibition will feature emerging and established artists represented by the galleries located in Switzerland, Netherlands and Russia.
