There is a reason why our jury is so structured. We often hear from art enthusiasts that they don't feel addressed by art at classical exhibitions and that they don't understand this art. The ARTBOX.PROJECT provides an exhibition platform for a broad mass of artists. This is exactly why it is important to us that this art be seen by a broad mass. For this reason, we have decided not to rely on just one curator, but to represent the opinions of the broad masses in our jury.
