Inner World- Call For Artist- Boomer Gallery

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:



In times where our lives seem on the edge most of us take refuge in something where they can express their inner self, and nobody does that with more passion and struggle than artists. The aim of this exhibition is simple - to express our "Inner World" to the world, to show our commitment during the greatest single challenge of our generation and to prove that we are not "less" than the generations of great artists before us. 

Everyone of us has been at a point in life where we had to endure, endure the lack of support, the lack of understanding from people around us particularly the ones close to us, criticism and the notorious line - "why don’t you get a real job?"

Yet in these times where we face deadly pandemics and challenges all around, the creators are badly affected and nobody wants to support arts because artists are not "critical workers"... Is that so?!

No it’s not! In 80 years when people will walk in a museum and see a work done in 2020, they won’t remember anything about any pandemic or struggles and rightly so, the good things always survive and transcend time.

If we visit the National Gallery in Washington and see Picasso’s Still Life from 1918 will we think about the 1918 Spanish flu? Most of us won’t, we will think how passionately they worked in those times, how great it was, how famous they’ve become.

The aim of this exhibition is simple - to express our "Inner World" to the world, to show our commitment during the greatest single challenge of our generation and to prove that we are not "less" than the generations of great artists before us.
