Transitory Art 


Curated by Francisco Lacerda

To a major extent, we can call Transitory Art “the boundary paradigm”. The Transitory Art Exhibition it is a selection of works that includes a great variety of artists exploring a wide range of materials, techniques, and subjects, using different references and contexts present in contemporary art nowadays. For me, Transitory Art is the make-believe time we take to travel between new styles of contemporary art and other art movements. We can easily see it in this exhibition because, as we walk through the chosen works, we come into contact with different materials, pictures, drawings, proportions, and representations, eventually feeling taken for a take-no-prisoners ride. We can see that there´s a different context and approach. None of them are digital. The world is changing faster than we thought, sometimes in a uncontrolled way, and artists need to capture these changes. It is often a difficult work. Everyday there are new amazing artworks on display in museums, galleries, fairs, or art spaces. Transitory Art allows for us to clearly notice the difference between past, present and future. The knowledge of what it is art today! We live in a technological or digital world. People are digital connected. World is now a big uncontrolled and powerful computer software. Nowadays artists feel that there is a digital world awaiting them and respond to it. We see new artists displaying more videos or photos instead of paintings or sculptures. All Art is not Dead or Fake! But it is clearly changing very fast. If someone asks me what is the “future of art”, I would say that it will evolve more and more towards the digital sort of expression. Transitory Art is not a specific art style, I think it is a cultural movement.
