CONCEPT: TILMAN
ORGANISATION: CCNOA, Brussels (BE)

Due to the fact that our art organization CCNOA was forced to close its
doors in Brussels at the end of last year, we have decided to focus – at
least for now – on the circulation of our touring group exhibitions
while developing new concepts and ways to communicate our aims and goals
and continue our activities as an international, multidisciplinary
platform for contemporary ‘reductive’ art.

Minusspace in cooperation with CCNOA is proud to present to the public our
most recent project, the first edition of 30/30 – IMAGE ARCHIVE PROJECT
(IAP).

30/30-IAP’s basic idea is to slowly establish a collective collection,
which will introduce the mesmerizing range of artistic approaches pursued
in a pictorial dialogue and create an ever-increasing overview of
contemporary artistic production in the realm of ‘reductive’ art on an
international level. 30/30-IAP will be administered by CCNOA in a joint
effort with a selection of those artists CCNOA has cooperated with over
the last 12 years as well as with newly invited artists from around the
globe.

The project’s title simply refers to the artwork’s exact size, which is
set at 30 x 30 cm with a maximum depth of 5 cm. Choosing this size will
also enable us to travel this project cost effectively and it will allow
us to store it easily (Museum in a suitcase).

Since this collective collection is an international open call to artists
interested in participating, the continuous growth of 30/30-IAP will allow
us to create exhibitions in varying configurations and size.

CCNOA is currently scheduling forthcoming presentations of 30/30-IAP in
smaller artist-run spaces in Australia, Europe, Japan, New Zeeland and the
USA.
