Every edition of SetUp is guided by a leading theme.
The guiding theme of the sixth edition of SetUp Contemporary Art Fair is Expectation.
Expectation, as interpreted by Saint Augustine, is not a specific moment when time has to be filled, but it is time extended beyond time, creating the emotional and active base shaping the future.
Consistent with the aims of the fair, which from its outset has believed in tomorrow as a propelling force, SetUp 2018 exhibitors are asked to present a curatorial project in which the observation of the present becomes a study on expectation, to be understood as temporal and spatial projection in which something takes shape, defining economic, social, political, geographic, but also physical, technological, formal scenarios. Through expectation we will read the future through art.
