These conversations occur between artists with a gallery representing them and those who work independently by invitation and open call, grouped randomly by draw. While playing ping-pong which also reminds us of the cross-talks between the two, The artists, after a brief introduction, will share their thoughts on their artistic practice and their experience working as an artist with each other and the viewers. And the winner will take a symbolic trophy home, while the core idea and the real victory will be beginning new paths, knowing new people, and engaging in ever-needed conversations at this very moment.
