bring your own portfolio!: 18th November 2007, 7. p.m.
During two days, Impex will host guest curators and artists from Belgrade, Serbia.
A main goal of this program is to strengthen the connections between Serbian and Hungarian artists and artistic organizations.
By selecting only a few artists and their latest works for the exhibition at Impex, the intention of two young curators Mara Prohaska Marković and Maida Gruden is mapping and presenting particular movements on artistic scene in Serbia, rather than giving an overall view on Serbian contemporary visual art. A priory determined theme or concept is absent in this exhibition, in order to keep the space for multi-channel effect of the works itself. Participating artists are: Maja Josifović, Goran Micevski, Aleksandar Jestrović Jamesdin, Dimitrije Tadić, Milica Ruičić and Maja Obradović.
Opening of the exhibition ‘Belgrade -> Budapest’ is on Saturday 17th, 19h at Impex 2 curators and 6 artists from Belgrade will be present for the event, in order to emphasize personal contacts and exchange of experiences with the local scene.
For this reason an informal afternoon meeting and talk with coffee and cakes will be organized on Sunday, November 18th, at 17h.
Everyone interested is invited to come and bring their own documentation of the previous work (portfolio, catalogues, videos, publications, etc) in order to share information with guests from Belgrade.
