The course is available for the participants of the School for Young Artists exclusively
Art project installation is a strategy that balances between an artistic concept and an exhibition space. The main task of the presentation is to create an atmosphere in which the viewer can comprehend the work of art as full as possible. At the same time, the installation of an art object is a part of work itself. The experience that the viewer gains while in the exhibition space is made up of a combination of many factors, from cultural to technical. During the course, artists will discuss the strategies of presentation and installation of an artwork so that the viewer could communicate with it.
