CON-TEMPORARY Art Observatorium accepts artists submissions to participate in the next two group exhibitions "TransHumance" and "Escapism."

"TransHumance" - Thematic group exhibition
Location: CON-TEMPORARY Art Observatorium - Lavagna, Italy
Accepted artworks: bi-dimensional, wall installed, including video art, small sculptures
Period: three weeks, t.b.a. (late 2022 or early 2023)
Theme:
Wearable high-tech, augmented reality, cybernetic prostheses, microchip implants, are the first steps of the transhumanism that herds human beings like cattle toward an alleged human-machine singularity. Does the human being desires to be free from the natural body’s caducity? What is the meaning of preserving the individual’s intellect in cyberspace? Which perspectives would immortality offer? Wouldn’t be more desirable to train our natural body and our innate potentialities relying on the resources and rebirth capability offered by nature?
