ART IS NOT A RACE sheds light on the current state of art, which is directly influenced by struggle and acceleration caused by the impact of the art world, and no time proves this more than the present.

Art is an interpretation of the world around us, and how we express it on collective and individual levels requires us to slow down to translate our experiences in a way that reflects our personal perspectives.

The vision: Speed ​​and its effect on the concept of time.

The question: Thinking of the future of art, could this fast pace transform its nature?

Is art, as we now know it, going to change?
