Contemporary Romantics

As the Tate’s exhibition Romantics comes to a close this summer, DegreeArt will be presenting an exhibition with a fresh approach and a more unique dialogue of Romanticism in its contemporary form. Numerous young artists, of different backgrounds and practices, draw inspiration from the spirit of such a traditional movement, addressing the theme in a new light to discover innovative perspectives by presenting a variety of formulations dealing with a number of issues to characterize today’s social and environmental concerns.
