GR Contemporary art is pleased to present Free Wall Needed, Wall n2.
The wall is a flat vertical surface, can function as barrier or limit.
The walls can delineate public or private boundaries, territorial subdivisions of areas, regions, states or nations.
Free Wall Needed is a curatorial project, takes advantage of the vertical flat surface of the wall. The surface is used and transformed into a support for ideas. A wall that looks like a door, a window that goes beyond the concept of limit.
The project involves the presentation of an artist every two weeks, through a single exhibition or installation of a work, in locations that are always new and unusual.
The idea is to create a platform of artists from different parts of the world, trying to highlight the diversity of the contexts of origin. In fact, through cooperation a knowledge base is created that is the antithesis of the conception of limit, closure and wall.
The second stage of the initiative will be in Piazza Trieste and Trento in Naples, in a historic Neapolitans location: the water bank. Managed place of the Acquafrescaio, ancient seller of soft drinks and sulfur waters. The exhibited work by Ukrainian photographer Sasha Kurmaz will be open from 21st to 31st August 2018 at the Acquafrescaio in Piazza Trieste and Trento.
