ArtConcept presents program of multimedia exhibitions under the title All History is Contemporary History.

 

Being interdisciplinary, the program aims to investigate the intersections of history, science, technical progress on the territory of contemporary art.

 

Special focus is on the opposition cultural vs. natural and its ramifications on the human condition nowadays. The ensuing crisis of modern man will be the point of departure for a few explorations into controversies of classical and industrial societies, a rupture with tradition, a correlation of degeneration and sociopolitical decay.

 

Science-based approach, visual data and theoretical underpinnings of innovative research are integral to multimedia exhibits, comprising video art, documentary and experimental cinema, installations, animation, as well as classical medium of drawing.

 

Politics as being, political interaction of people, alienation of the individual from society and in relation to labor cannot but form a central axis for contemporary art expressions. This can be done through synergetic perspective drawn upon vestiges and witnesses from the fields of history, evolution, culture, scientific theory and practice.

Ito Joyoatmojo. Gräser, Velos und andere Strukturen

 

The exhibit of Indonesian artist presents us with a stunning and inventive image of contemporary world. His photorealistic works feature adventurous mixture of contemporary subjects, saturated color, micro scale, rich detail, bold abstraction, visual wit, photographic spontaneity, and flamboyant digital tinkering—all in the service of a polished, signature style. The ambiguous cause-effect relationships in natural and cultural phenomena alike evident in his paintings are mirrored in the intricacies of rhythmisized patterns of grass, bicycles, and other structures.
