What is ALMOST ART PROJECT?

针对素人艺术家、漫画艺术家和街头艺术家的游击展览计划(首站北京,将会巡回展至上海,成都),致力于为这些艺术家提供一个展示和销售的平台。关于中国素人艺术家的出版物也会同时推出。

AAP is a guerrilla art festival presenting 50 plus incredibly talented, yet relatively unknown artists. The festival consists a 10-day exhibition, accompanied by a number of public lectures and social events. Participating artists include outsider artists (non-professional, mostly self-taught), comic artists, street artists and photographers. They are all invited by AAP’s board of advisors based on their artistic merits. A book on Chinese outsider artists will also be published at the same time.

 

mission

+AAP 致力于为素人艺术家,漫画家,街头艺术创作者创造一个展示的平台,并通过销售其作品为他们创造更好的生存及创作环境。

+通过学术的梳理重构素人艺术,漫画艺术在艺术史中的地位,打破日趋僵化的当代艺术系统,建立更加有机而多元的当代艺术生态。

+在挖掘优秀的非主流艺术作品外,AAP尤其关注中国的亚文化发展,通过对亚文化的挖掘和研究,为整个艺术文化界的发展注入更多可能性。

+ AAP strives to create a better creative environment for outsider artists, comic artists and street artists through exhibiting and selling of their works.

+ Give outsider artists and comic artists their deserved position in art history through research and publication, challenge the increasingly rigid contemporary art system, and create a more dynamic and diverse contemporary art ecosystem.    

+Besides discovering outstanding non-mainstream art works, AAP pays particular attention to various sub-cultures in China. Through discovering and studying sub-cultures, AAP can lend more possibilities to the development of art and culture.
