48 artists from around the world are looking for answers on art’s limits in an exhibition at the Municipal Art Gallery of Chania in Crete. The world of art today is boundless. It has overcome geographical, ethnic, religious and political obstacles and found a model for dealing with the even greater challenges which humanity is facing in the era of globalisation.

The works are part of the collection of Frissiras museum in Athens, the only museum of contemporary anthropocentric art in Greece. After 20 years, it is now returning to Chania with this exhibition that tries to destroy fundamental stereotypical perceptions and outdated ideas about contemporary art. In this way, Frissiras museum remains true to its programming commitments which include contributing to contemporary art and promotion of culture.

The 48 artists from around the world oppose a fertile artistic dialogue, cooperation and exchange of ideas to the alienation that people feel from each other and which characterises modern societies. According to them, this is the only way to overcome and create a new world, full of expectation and hope for a better future.

The exhibition includes works by the following artists: Adam Hahn (Scotland), Andrea Mateo (France), Aguirre Xabier (Spain), Andrea Pat (Holland), Brann Renaud (France), Conroy Stephen (England), Corpet Vincent (France), Dixon Jane (England), Djurdjevic Biljana (Serbia), Howson Peter (England), Hay Susanne (Germany), Laszlo Feher (Hungary), Jones Mark (England), Kirbi John (England), Komu Riyaz (India), Ksiazek Bogumil (Poland), Katinka Lampe (The Netherlands), Leglise Frederic (France), Marrey Gilles (France), Ji Li (China), Levente Herman (Romania),
