Exposition # 2 Within the Big Circle Exhibition

July 16 – 28, 2019

The exposition # 2 within the Big Circle exhibition will showcase a wide range of artworks by the participants of projects such as the CCNOA (Center for Contemporary Non-Objective Art), Brussels, Belgium, DAC (Dolceacqua Arte Contemporanea), Dolceacqua, Italy, and WEST Projects, Sydney, Australia.

This time M17 invites the projects from Belgium, Italy and Australia to join the Big Circle, offering a new field to explore the relationship between the imaginative, associative content of a work of non-objective art and its formal structure.

Cora Von Zeschwitz & Tilman on Interspace

⬤ CCNOA was founded in 1998 by Mrs. Petra Bungert and German-born artist Tilman. It was one of its first kind in the world, focusing especially on the promotion of contemporary tendencies within the realm of the reductive and/or non-objective genre.

Shortly after its closing in 2010 in Italy Tilman opened the new experimental art-space, DAC, for realizing strictly site-specific projects.

"CCNOA/DAC - a shared experience" aims to visually review CCNOA's history and to DAC's ongoing activities.
