Two 4 One curated by Romuald Demidenko

You wanted to become a creative leader with a strong vision. Think of people who create exceptional things at a strategic and creative level. The same goes for these, who constantly change all the rules in the market. They are visionaries, but are very involved in the details at the same time. Real builders. You wanted to be one of them.

It started with the click of a button which was often enough to let others know you liked them. You could be liked back for it. Posting a photo of your favourite’s artist piece was easy. But making an art piece required certain skills and a bit of flair. More and more you had become fond of less popular channels that you could use without being obliged to actually double check before releasing anything there, as there were almost no appreciation, neither dislikes from the other users. You were familiar with niche outlets that had almost zero subscribers. You started to think of becoming an artist yourself. You decided to secretly keep track of one, when he was working on an exhibition. He used various media and had an outspoken position because of the recent work. He has been also widely presented in institutional venues and amongst the art fairs. With a great feedback it leaded him to the leading position. The exhibitions he was working on were planned much in advance and all of them had a curator, a text and reception. Everything seemed to be going great also in this case. Except for the budget which was less than pitiful.
