APOCALYPSIS

OPEN CALL

Hello all artists!

We invite you all to participate in a group exhibition at Makers’ Gallery in Vaasa in October 2022. The exhibition is based on Albrecht Dürer’s famous series of woodcuts

APOCALYPSIS

How do Dürer’s apocalyptic visions resonate in our time? How do they communicate with the visions, views and interpretations of contemporary artists? Our goal is to find new perspectives on the present and the past through the dialogue of Albrecht Dürer’s apocalypse series of woodcuts and the works of contemporary artists commenting on them. The works selected for the exhibition are based on Albrecht Dürer’s series of works or part thereoff and/or the text of John’s revelation. We hope for our own perspective, approach, theme from the works: whether it comes from the past, the present or the future. Copies of Dürer’s works and new works are in dialogue in the exhibition.
