ARTISTERIUM 13 / 2020 / ONLINE
The 13th edition of the Tbilisi International Contemporary Art Exhibition and Art Events Artisterium is held online for the first time in the history of the festival. The decision to launch the project in the virtual space became especially relevant at a time when, for well-known reasons, cultural, social, economic, or other manifestations of public life in Georgia were more or less delayed in the real world and most of them transferred to the virtual space.
Restrictions on the spread of the virus have posed great challenges, especially in the art sector. The unusual situation of the present-day, when the first problem is gathering people, has become a difficult circumstance for the artists and pushed them to rethink the artistic forms appropriate to the time and to use the suitable means. With this in mind, today the digital format has become the most relevant medium that allows the implementation of a project adapted to the current situation and new circumstances.
