Statement:

The concept: Deep depression and its relations with art is a central theme of the exhibition. It can be about depression only, or it can be about people who are depressed. This situation made them deep or artful; more than this, everything’s up to you and your creation.

Exhibition fields are Video-installation, Performance, Audio-installation, Illustration, Photography, and Typography.

All artists from all over the world can join the exhibition. Entering the show is free. We are also looking for sponsors who are interested in this project. If you are interested or know someone who may be able to help, please let us know. We are trying to make this exhibition travel around the world. So 1st step is the exhibition’s website to find more audiences. We are looking to receive more artwork/ideas/proposals and also reviews.
