Tangible Fantasy

Exhibition of students and alumni of 5 art academies

Here, again in this, still unusual lock-down, uncertain and challenging, tactile environment and rhetoric, dubious functionalities – we gather in a kind of continuation of the now traditional exhibition, the previous project TROLIK. A project that brings together and presents the best works of students and alumni of our Croatian academies and foreign partners.

Through this exhibition, we present the necessity of direct, physical, tactile communication and perhaps most importantly-cooperation, as a kind of positive call to counterpoint the growing virtual as the dominant (?) Form of socialization.

Thus, we present a creative, artistic de-virtualization, so necessary in the reflections of the future, given that we are still people with bodies, touches, and exist (still) in real (?) Time and space. This is an exhibition of Reality, realized, materialized fantasies and creations of our young Artists!

This time, four Croatian art academies are presented: the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, the Academy of Applied Arts in Rijeka, the Academy of Arts and Culture in Osijek, the Academy of Arts in Split and our partners with CAA (China Academy of Art), Hangzhou in China. Petolik!
