KHIDI – Contemporary Art Space presents the multidisciplinary exhibition project In-between Conditions on December 7th, 19:00
Fast-paced technological development, unprecedented means of communication and overwhelming streams of information shape the new global-political and socio-cultural contours of everyday life. Parallel to these developments, the emergence of new conditions in societal life simultaneously creates unforeseen mythologies and narratives, thus unfolding novel ways of manipulation in social and political aspects.
Naturally, a novel diversity of creative expression ensues.
The exhibition „In-between Conditions“ addresses the local context, orienting around questions such as: What are the conditions we exist in? Or: What will the conditions be, wherein our daily life constantly changes? What is or could be understood as new media art in Georgian context and beyond and which interrelationship with the current socio-political discourse does it imply?
„In-between conditions“ displays 18 work contributions expressing cultural impulses affected by political or social forces. In a transdisciplinary, exploratory manner, the show addresses those artistic tendencies and streams that had been left beyond recognition or whose contextualization within Georgia has not happened yet.
Contemporary impulses of time, regressive acceleration, or even Progressive Genitalia– the resolution is a boundary-exposing, self-reflective meta text surrendering to (cultural) codes and signs.

Detu Jintcharadze and Mariam Natroshvili, Gio Sumbadze, Giorgi Maghradze, Jasper Fung, Koka Vashakidze and Vasili Macharadze, Lado Lomitashvili, Lado Oniani, Mamuka Japharidze, Manuchar Okrostsvaridze, Nika Machaidze, Nikoloz Kapanadze, Sandro Asatiani and Zura Jishkariani, Sandro Sulaberidze, Tam Gurgenidze, Tilda George, Tornike Qarchkha, Wato Tsereteli,
