SHIFTING CONTEXTS II

Shifting Contexts II is a specific visual art project aimed to explore the critical role of art to respond to a rapidly changing world and to contribute to contemporary discourse. Shifting Contexts II encourages young artists to develop a creative proposal responding to the theme of CHANGE either individually or as a group art collective constituting up to 4 members. Creativity entails looking at familiar things from a completely novel perspective and Shifting Contexts II once again aspires to encourage and sustain this approach whilst at the same time it also seeks to promote collaborative practices in the arts. Participating artists and collectives must show that they have responded to the theme through practice-based research that explores innovative approaches to meaning-making that allow for different interpretations to emerge.
