Artisterium 2017

Date: 04 Nov. 2017 – 14 Nov. 2017

Museum: Tbilisi History Museum

Georgian National Museum hosts "Artisterium 2017" in the Tbilisi History Museum. 

Artisterium is a Tbilisi annual International Contemporary Art Exhibition and Art Event organized by the Georgia-based non-governmental art organization Artisterium Association.

The event is composed of international exhibitions, individual art projects, educational and cultural programs. Artisterium hosts the artists, artist groups, curators and art critics from around the world. The Artisterium aims at creation of a platform for exchange, new insights and new approaches on the ever-shifting, ever-challenging state of contemporary art and culture.

Artisterium's 10th International Exhibition of Contemporary Art is dedicated to the dialogue between visual arts, craft, and design. In so doing it explores the important links between physical form, material and thought, and the ways of transforming one into another. In visual arts as well as contemporary studio craft and design, it is the specific characteristics of materials that determine their functionality and aesthetic meaning. Thus their synthesis can also create new objects and completely original content. No10, as the title implies, reflects the practice of enumeration in the philosophical structure of material and text. It aims to lead them beyond the usual themes and ideologies to a more solid platform of free self-expression. Artisterium No10 is the search for a synthesis between ready-made material, language, and new approaches to thought within visual arts, craft, and design. It is the hunt for a physical, economically viable synthesis of the very tangible 'craft' materials of art, within the increasingly chaotic, intangible structures of thought starting to overwhelm contemporary culture.
