IlTelivisionario2 got the opportunity to spend some time with Peter and he says "It was indeed a great gathering on the opening day and moreover we have observed large number of visitors during these periods which is very satisfying. There were multiple discussions with six participating artists by which I studied their artworks and the stories that has inspired them to create beautiful works and for me, as a curator it's much required to go through this process which will help me to design the layouts with the seriousness it deserves. When I'm asked to curate a show, I organize everything from the start, it means a lot of meetings (especially at a show with several artists, like "BELIEVE in art across generations") Selection of artists and artworks are included. Of course, just as the maintenance of the entire preparation time (up to 3 months), invitation of the guests to the opening, placing the works of art and much more and all within the opening night, the work does not end and I feel, as curator, committed to the artists and the artworks. While this exhibition concludes in January 2020, there are more projects on card which will be organized at various venues."
