About the festival:
AllArtNow launched festival with the desire to introduce contemporary art and its processes to our audiences, and to encourage the development of emerging artists in Syria and around the world.
In 2009 we introduced video art.
We have screened video art in different spaces (public, cultural and artistic spaces) through partnerships established inside and outside of Syria, in effort to reach diverse audiences.
In 2010 we presented many new forms of contemporary art, in our continued effort to create a platform for open discussion about new kinds of emerging contemporary art. We seek to nurture and help the cultural scene grow, one year after another, and to add to our already growing number of partnerships.
This year the festival expands to cover more activities that we would like to introduce to our Syrian audience, and to those artists that we have collaborated with through exhibitions, video art festivals, and workshops. In our 2011 program we will be showing a selection of artworks including -video – multi-media installation – performance, street art, and video art, working directly with and supporting the artists and our audience.
AllArtNow was initiated in 2005 as a reaction to a series of different limitations that exist for artists and other cultural producers working in Syria. Project after project convinced us of the need and the benefits of developing a platform for contemporary art, and providing opportunities for artists to flourish. We have succeeded in encouraging artists to work using contemporary practices, such as video, installation, and performance.
We aim to continue developing new collaborative approaches with organizations in & out of Syria. Through our work as supporters and facilitators of contemporary art practices we aspire to create opportunities for artists, ranging from workshops to residencies and exhibitions; and for our audiences, through participation and open dialogue.
AllArtNow is always open to artists from different regions of the world to work and be in contact with local artists, because we believe that by collaborating with others we can improve the current ecology of the arts in Syria.
