Many contemporary artists and other creators of art run along the same road. They are directed by absolutely incompetent curators, and this road leads to nowhere. Art loses its meaning and its greatest task. Art has become a reflection of the spirit of the ugly world in which we live. In many cases, ugliness, humiliation, absurdity, parody, meaninglessness, and lack of talent are called the basis of modern art. But is art given to man for this? What is art? Can everything that modern man creates be called art? Where is the limit, and how do we define the boundary between what is and isn’t art? Absurdism is the spirit of modernity, but is it really the true spirit of art?
The goal of our projects is the struggle against the degeneration of art, the struggle against belittling art to absurdity and ridicule. Through our projects we seek to remind artists of the great goal of art, of the great spiritual impact that art has on everyone. Art is a different type of cognitive activity, it is a different way of knowing the world and oneself. The task of art is enormous, because art brings a great mission: the artistic and spiritual transformation of the human world.
Therefore, at ARCProspect, we host various art projects, competitions, and exhibitions revolving around deep concepts in order to challenge artists to take their work to the next level of meaning and return to the true essence of art.
Through this project we aim to make an enormous difference in the lives of young creative people. By lifting up their voices and talents, we want to cultivate a more fulfilling, prosperous, creative and healthy life full of hope for them.
