In a time of global political anxiety, where national identities and borders are reinforced in the name of security and guarantees, Personal Relations intends to create unexpected and captivating international cultural bridges and to foster a sense of unity and collaboration alongside artistic excellence and innovation.
Personal Relation is an international touring exhibition where the large collection of miniature-portraits will attain something far greater than the sum of its parts. Curated by hARTslane. the project is not intended as an exchange but as a unique body that grows thanks to the contributions of each artist and organisation collectively. As the miniature portraits were originally made and often given as a political gift to a king or ambassador, the project also aims to strengthen international bonds on an artistic level. Over 150 artists were invited to respond to the history of the miniature-portrait and its attempt to capture the identity of the subject to create an intimate dialogue with the viewer. The smartphone screen also echoes the miniature-portrait, and has become the natural home of the 21st Century portrait, playing a treasured part in many people’s lives.
