The Art Moves International Festival of Art on Billboards 2016 is over!
This year, the theme of the Art Moves Festival was „Under pressure. How to be yourself in the contemporary oppressive world?”. We invited internationally renowned artists, young authors, and international audience to a common reflection on what really matters and gives meaning to our life.
643 artists from 62 countries entered the contest, we received 1204 artworks from Cuba, USA, China, Armenia, Lebanon, Russia, Ecuador, France, Kyrgyzstan, Iran and many others. The international jury selected 10 most interesting projects which were exhibited on billboards located on Pl. Rapackiego in Toruń. The jury decided to confer the main award to Aleksander Piątek i Monika Braksal from Poland.
The works of renowned artists participating in the festival were presented on city lights and LED displays located in different parts of Toruń. The winning work was also exhibited on 5 billboards in Warsaw.
