The CtA – REMIX exhibition presents a select of the resulting artworks of the five Artists’ Residencies Programmes which took place between 2015-16 in Nicosia (3), Athens and Berlin, with the participation of Greek Cypriot, Turkish Cypriot and European artists (34 in total). The Cyprus-centred concept of the residencies inspired the artists to research and self-express, highlighting their aesthetic, experiential and evolutionary results in practice, within the scope and vision of the original artworks produced.
CtA – REMIX is a true remix of experiences, reflections, challenges, actions and discussions, given as feedback by each Residency to the CtA Programme, restructured and refocused on the juxtaposition of visual and social deliberations through art. Furthermore, it is an ‘a posteriori’ remix of artworks, archive material and publications, giving the exhibition its own autonomous expression, and providing a social and artistic meaning that is friendly to the public.
The five Residencies form part of the broader bi-communal project Confrontation through Art developed and implemented by NGOs European Mediterranean Art Association (EMAA) and Rooftop Theatre Group and funded by the European Union under the Cypriot Civil Society in Action programme. The project aimed to contribute to the enhancement of peaceful co-existence, tolerance and creative problem-solving awareness and skills within artistic circles and other diverse segments of the Cypriot communities. It focused on bringing together young and mature artists to discuss, produce and express views on the Cyprus problem and related social challenges.
The CtA – Remix exhibition is also supported by Stelios Philanthropic Foundation Bi-communal Awards 2016, 1010Hall – Irina Tryfonos and the Cultural Services of the Republic of Cyprus.
