• Piano 24, a piano marathon which will be held on August 16, is open to all participants. There are no restrictions on time and repertoire.

• Outstanding participants chosen by the faculty will perform on the Piano Loop Academy Closing Concert.
The concept of Piano 24 is some sort of a readymade in which the pianist who is playing the piano becomes the ready-made object of observation in the art gallery. The usual boundaries between the listener and the performer, as well as the conventional role of the audience whi are sitting and listening, are dematerialized. In that way the audience plays the role of museum visitors examining the exhibits, going in and out at their own discretion as opposed to being defined by the duration of the concert. While explaining the concept of a contemporary museum, Yves Michaud, a famous French critic of contemporary art said: “Hordes of tourists move towards the museums which no longer represent art, instead they are art themselves, some sort of a thermal resort in which culture is turned into a cure of aesthetic experience
