This edition of Artwrite 54 imagines a space of uncensored expression, where depiction of the female form is not deplored but celebrated. Colours merge and boundaries disintegrate. Artisans evolve unhindered in their aesthetic; the commercial value of their work becomes insignificant. Imagine a future where the man-made fuses seamlessly with the landscape, the beauty of life is celebrated in the face of death, and every undertaking is a performance to be considered. This is Artopia.
From the Biennale of Sydney to White Rabbit Gallery, from sport and art to art love letters, from taxidermy to the abject, from Chinese art to Russian art consultants, Artopia is an experiment in student art writing. We, as a team, have collaborated, investigated, explored and celebrated contemporary “Art as Artopia.”
