The New Disorder


curated by Michael Bevilacqua and Katerina Nikou


The Ileana Tounta Contemporary Art Center presented the group show «The New Disorder» curated by Michael Bevilacqua and Katerina Nikou.  Duration:  8 December 2011 - 28 January 2012


"In an age of ready-mades installation art, video art, performance, the question of what is art practice is more complex. Since 1960s the medium or material condition of the work has tended to become increasingly relative to the means, location and context of utterance. Nowadays, where information and technology, are dominant it is hard to place artists as painters, sculptors, photographers etc.


Artists : Dimitrios Antonitsis, Michael Bevilacqua, Panos Famelis, Leo Gabin, Aris and Lakis Ionas / The Callas, Thanos Kyriakides, Bjarne Melgaard, Eva Mitala, Mason Saltarrelli, Dean Sameshima, Casey Spooner, Michael Stipe


The artists of the New Disorder are from varying backgrounds in music, visual arts, fine arts, performance and they are using their unique vision to create art that can "help" us to make sense of our complex relationship in the outside world. They feel the need to understand the relationship between art and society and to conceive at the level of idea and concepts how art and life might be realigned.


Art that is happening in the real world, in film sets, in design studios, on fashion shoots, in workshops, in the streets. The artists invite their audience to question ways of seeing and experiencing art and to constantly change their perspectives. They also explore feelings of alienation, displacement and distance in time and space. "
