ATMO: A showcase of young art at ARCHIP
ATMO returns to ARCHIP for its second year, this time presenting its audience with a well-balanced yet compelling space filled with art made by five young artists. The exhibition's objective is to showcase these artists in a convivial atmosphere thereby providing a lasting memory for its audience – aka anyone from a learned individual, to an art enthusiast, to a mildly ignorant visitor.
This year, siblings Antonie Stanová and Samuel Stano will be exhibiting for a second time round. A keen visitor will thus be able to observe ways in which their work has changed throughout the past year. ATMO is further happy to introduce three more artists taking part in the exhibition this year – Lucie Michnová, Serhij Ďakiv, and Petros Aronis.
The curator, of course, works closely with the artists and the artists collaborate among themselves to create an unexpected interplay of different kinds of artistic media, forms and materials, with the works often somehow relating to one another or even being physically connected.
The subtitle EXTRA CARE openly refers to the role of the curator as a CAREtaker (since, as one learns in a bunch of publications on curating, the word "curator" comes from the Latin "cūrātor" which translates to "one who has care of a thing"). However, the phrase is also applicable to various other, more general themes of life.
The aim of this event is to spice up the common style of exhibiting by adding to it an EXTRA element in form of an accompanying programme full of activities all somehow reacting to the subtitle, interpreting it in a number of different ways. *programme TBA*
Mina Zybartas, the curator of this exhibition, is currently finishing up her studies in Glasgow, UK. She considers it meaningful to bring more attention to young talented artists whose work, in her eyes, has potential.
- The exhibition opens at 6pm on August 14 on the third floor of ARCHIP (using our studio space).
- It will be open until August 25 with a another day of activities linked to the exhibition's subtitle,
the EXTRA CARE.
- Everyone is welcome for both the opening and the exhibition. The exhibition is, of course, free.
