International Print Festival LIFE N STYLE
Curated by Nana Kirmelashvili
The project includes one of the most important technique Hand-made printing /screen printing, lithography, linocut, etching… / renovation in Georgia.
This year in August, the project started in Tusheti then moved to Batumi and finished in Tbilisi.
The new segment was added to the exhibition format of this year festival. Presenting modern forms and means of contemporary art: costume, performance, photo installation, ceramics and design, video art, sound, text.
Today the modern visual art has gone beyond wall painting. It has different form and language of expression. Actually, in this language the Print festival began to talk. The Board of Experts had previously chosen different artists participating in the Tusheti project. These were photographers, artists, designers, performers, video artists, filmmakers, musicians. Ancient Tushetian legends and myths and ornaments became the inspiration of artists. Participants have been able to use modern forms and technologies to show Tusheti, seen by contemporary artists.
The project is a collaborative work of multimedia artists. Their main task is to synthesize the old traditional technique and modernity. This became a business card of the festival along with the accompanying costumes the festival was followed by a wide audience. Where once again the print media collaboration with multimedia artists is clearly demonstrated. Which will facilitate the popularization of handmade printing technology and further intensification of the modern society.
