Intersections of Art
One year after successfully holding ActaρικART, the ”Art en Route” Festival is playing an active part in the continued effort to promote contemporary art through new artistic forums. In doing so, the festival warmly welcomes the CulturaHER exhibition…
…the participation of 73 creators aims to underline the universal face of art, mirroring our culture in general.
… As genuine products of art, the works on display constitute a microcosm of everything occurring at the present time, thus condensing a variety of emotions, preoccupations and concerns which an innate calling triggers the artists to flesh out, so that they live on in collective consciousness. Art plays a catalytic role in raising awareness of how progress is attained, while at the same time cultivating the quest for beauty… This pluralism is vital if art is to be capable of bearing fruit, and of acting ever more positively on society in each of its forms.
