From Art in Museums to Art in the Streets

Curator: Oana Maroti

What is Art? Who is an artist?
What is culture?
Why culture in the streets? Why cultural accessibility is important?

Art is expressed language and it´s more diverse than we can imagine.

Languages form at macro and micro levels and they can manifest as open or closed. Flexibility in thinking versus a closed-mind approach is what art can make for each and one of us. Furthermore, some might invent during the process or reach impressive levels of creativity. Due to this phenomenon, humanity managed to exist for a long time and improve living conditions.

Making sure that people get engaged in the creative process is also a considerable social aspect, as art in a macro group equation means lots of problem-solving.

Introspective Art (private space)
Relief methods, an individual must for mental health.
Sharing is optional.

From their ivory towers, poets and artists all over the world made visible the outcast´s mental challenge. Something similar to what neurodivergent kids nowadays kind of feel at school, as it seems.

Introspective Art has a big Therapeutical aspect, therefore an activity that allows us to create, to step up from the ordinary sustains mental health and is helping each individual to find more suitable coping strategies a sort of inner equilibrium that maintains the memory flux.

Collective Social Art (common space)
Human culture, diversity networks, compensatory strategies

Art can redirect unfunctional algorithms used as social codes or show ideas more efficiently and pleasantly with less effort. Our brain makes information transfers based on artistical language at conceptual levels. It´s much more than ambiental and esthetics, it´s about coding and problem-solving.

Those who can will be playing with the syntax, rearranging elements in new ways. Just a few can do that, some very important ones, because it comes from knowledge and direct experience.

Live Interaction or Simulated Interaction?

Art is for human interaction, not just decorative, ambiental.

Graphism, Underground Art, Sgraffito, Graffiti Art, Crafts
Urban Art, Intercultural Street Galleries

There´s a common language forming in the streets, the strongest transferable codes.
Since forever, the street’s creativity influenced what was exposed in the museum and not the other way around.
