The group art exhibition entitled Nomads' Land explores some of the different aspects of the life of the contemporary nomad-artist who is constantly on the move around the world, looking for new territories of inspiration, creation, presentation and promotion of his work. This kind of existence, living "on the road" was the normal way of life of the primitive hunter-gatherers of the Paleolithic period, before the advent of agriculture, and is still practiced today by small-scale nomadic societies in a large part of the non-Western world.
The contemporary perpetual movement means maximizing the benefits of connecting geographical areas with different artistic practices and virtual data, while at the same time allowing the artist to remain connected to all accessible information through the use of technology. The participating artists deal -through their own nomadic experience in the art world- with issues such as the real and imaginary limits of mobility, the obstacles in the communication with the unfamiliar, the geographical and emotional 'dislocation', the portability of art, the artist’s status as political and social activist and visionary, the life in public places as a form of ephemeral nomadism, the literal and figurative adaptability of life to contemporary conditions.
