CON-TEMPORARY Art Observatorium and Jizaino present the group exhibition “Escapism”.

An exhibition relating to the reasons and to the psychic and emotional condition of the individual, who in good or bad, tries to escape a society that is bog-standard, oppressing, too complicated and demanding. Ambition, fantasy, dream, spirituality, faith and idealism counterposed to the burden of homogenisation, pragmatism and materialism.

Escapism -  Art and intangible reality
24 April - 14 May 2023
CON-TEMPORARY Art Observatorium
Corso Buenos Aires 42 11
Lavagna, Italy

Opening hours: all days from 10.00 to 18.00 booking on www.ctao.eu

Free entrance

The exhibition curated by Abramo Tepes Montini features photography, painting, ceramic and video artworks by Pietro Angelini, Max Breakenridge, Shanna Fliegel, Lăcră Grozăvescu, Winnie KS Hui, Veronika Krämer, Ekaterina Kuzmina, Lucas Rebelo, Ruth & Alexander, Ian Kevin Scott, Leni Smoragdova and Tom Snelgrove.

After a time of intense social pressures and incredible global events, CTAO opens up 2023 with two essential and necessary exhibitions analysing our contemporaneity, where on one side we see the individual oppressed and controlled by a system that is always more penetrating and totalitarian, and on the other side we are urged toward horizons of an ideologic evolution of mankind, promoting an improvement of the existence.

The first exhibition, Escapism, introduces the first pressing question of our epoch through the representation of the soul that reacts and tries to keep its human dimension, proposing a selection of artworks that are like breaches on the real truth, that is to say windows on the reality of existence, which is not tangible or evident, but outcome of an intimate contemplation of the apparent world, of a lucid interpretation of the sensorial illusion.
