Art review: Sinestetica Montez 2024

Atelier Montez organises a contemporary art review scheduling meetings every two weeks throughout the year 2024.

These happenings are collective experiments in relational aesthetics entirely designed by the artists to penetrate more deeply into the understanding of aesthetics and contemporary art, in order to generate a stronger and more complex visual experience, so to speak an “augmented experience”. The main artistic objective of the exhibition is to increase engagement and the sense of belonging to the art community, stimulating proactive and cognitive-morphological critical reflection in the user through simultaneous mediated and immediate participation in the artistic phenomenon.

The artistic director of the exhibition is Gio Montez and the curator is Marcella Magaletti.

“Riikka rejects the purely aesthetic and hedonistic value of the image and approaches the conceptualism of Joseph Kosuth in which “art exists only as an idea” or as a memory and has mostly cognitive purposes, overcoming retinal art and going to solicit the viewer’s mind to let him reflect.” cit. Marcella Magaletti
