#OPEN

Onufri Re-Made is a bottom-up artistic movement who tends to create mechanisms through which more and more initiatives are opened, allowing free expression of creativity without hindrance, restriction or manipulation by the power system that manages art in Albania.
With Onufri Re-Made, we want the artist to become the author of his work, becoming aware that he has the opportunity to independently promote personal and collective initiatives.

ORGANIZERS

Onufri Remade is a project of EJAlbum and National Gallery of Kosovo and is curated by Ardian Isufi and Elton Koritari.
A board of jury, outside the curatorial group, will be part of the process and will select the winning artist. Board and Curators assessment is that the selection of artists and artworks should naturally reflect the spirit, diversity and uniqueness of Albanian contemporary art in a dialogue of ideas and range of mediums. For the public of the National Gallery of Kosovo, beyond its symbolism, the exhibition was a really a snapshot of the contemporary Albanian art.

The exhibition is not simply an exercise of contracting a “merchandise” but an invitation to engage in gazing a normalization of a correct relationship between artists, society, power and art management, whatever it is, public or private. We pursue to put artists ahead of fundamental issues in terms of art and the problem of its function today, considering them and their work not as a marginal or decorative presence in today’s society, but rather as the main actors in the choices involved with them, whether permanent or transitory, radical or fractional, subversive or reformists.
