The art-lovers will be given a chance to enjoy the 23rd edition of the Onufri International Exhibition, which is conceived as an artistic approach with important messages at the National Gallery of Arts in Tirana starting from December 20 until end of January 2018.
The exhibition, which is baptized under the name "AU FIL DU TEMPS - Collective Remembrance, Personal Remembrance", will feature as protagonists artists from six countries, all born in the 70s and 80s and with a rich Curriculum Vitae in the international arena like Zeni Ballazhi, Adi Haxhiaj, Koja, Perino & Vele, Leonard Qylafi, Calixto Ramirez, Jelena Tomasevic, Vangjush Vellahu, Alketa Xhafa Mripa and Fani Zguro.
The exhibition will come to the public under the auspices of the Italian curator Gaetano Centrone, who has tried as hard as possible to find a common denominator that brings together the majority of artists' experiences.
After many studies he came to the conclusion that History prevails in their work. However the curator does not intend to build a political exhibition (this is not in his plans) as there is a big difference between the cultural and the socio-political element.
