#8Artists” is a collective exhibition, opening on the 8th of August 2019. A2Z Art Gallery has selected a group of 8 artists and presented each with a challenge to create artworks that are more instagramable. The selected artists enter into a dialogue that investigates the importance of social media in society and how the advantages and disadvantages cross over into the art-world[s].
To quote the Greek philosopher Heraclitus, “Change is the only constant” and true to this fact, in just a little more than a decade, humanity has adopted the use of social media platforms as part of our everyday life. It’s estimated that over 3 billion people are currently using social network apps such as instagram. Artists are increasingly using these platforms to reach a wider audience; such actions have definitely made the art communities larger and the art-world[s] more accessible.
