ARTISTS AS MENTORS
CURATOR: LUISE KLOOS
Karas Gallery
April 24 – May 12, 2019

 

 

Opening of the exhibition: Wednesday, April 24 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery

 

The group exhibition Artists as Mentors, by Luise Kloos, will be opened on Wednesday, April 24 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery (Zvonimirova 58).

“For four years already Styrian artists have been opening their studios to give the Croatian students the opportunity of a two-week practice, within the Erasmus + project in the field of contemporary art production in Styria. Within this period, 74 young people and 11 professors from Croatia have already taken this opportunity. At the invitation of the Croatian Association of Artists, these artists, who have good local and international reputation, are now displaying their works in Zagreb. (…)

“In art production, the existence of ‘the older’ is the basis that enables the new to gain the legacy of novelty, to connect the past and the future, to give material to the impatience of thought and to define the position in the present. Contemporary art history has no basis in ideologies that developed in the 20th century like on sea waves“(Paul Z. Rotterdam, Wild Vegetation, 2014).

NATAŠA VUKOVIĆ
DISTORTION
Karas Gallery
April 9 – April 21, 2019

 

Opening of the exhibition: Tuesday, April 9 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery

Exhibition Distortion, by Nataša Vuković, will be opened on Tuesday, April 9 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery (Zvonimirova 58).

”If the painting can still make us pause and if we still attribute to the painting power to stop us, to make us look, long enough to experience time through focus in observing what is painted, then maybe we still try to observe the painting in a way maybe we want to be observed. (…)

In the context of previous author’s paintings, in which, for example, with a similarly sophisticated detail oriented gesture, she dedicated herself to the depictions of wrinkled nylon, it is quite obvious that Nataša Vuković, in her artistic work, devoutly contemplates the apparent status quo of the present circumstances in which we find ourselves as a civilization.”

From the preface, written by Ana-Marija Koljanin

THE 54TH ZAGREB SALON OF VISUAL ARTS
WITHOUT ANESTHESIA
Home of HDLU
March 26 – May 5, 2019

the 54th ZAGREB SALON – WITHOUT ANESTHESIA, according to the curatorial concept of Branka Benčić and Tevž Logar, will be opened on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, at 7pm at the Home of HDLU, Trg žrtava fašizma 16. The exhibition will remain open until May 5, 2019.

CONCEPT:

The proposal of the curator concept of the 54th Zagreb Salon starts with several assumptions and interests, which it tries to gather within an exhibition that is formed as an existing and recognizable salon format, with the intention of presenting recent artistic production and considering the contexts in which artists work. Considering the background and perspective of the Zagreb Salon the curatorial proposal is formed kaleidoscopically, as a reflection of multiple perspectives and positions. On the one hand, with a twenty-year break, we recall the City scapes (1998) Salon, curated by Igor Zabela, on which this exhibition leans, contemplating continuities and discontinuities, opportunities and perspectives, filled and unfulfilled potentials and aspirations, curatorial practices and institutional history of the exhibition. In the light of Igor Zabela’s thinking about the exhibition as a strategy, the exhibition is a global idea, a significant row of procedures and approaches to ensure that the right viewer sees artwork in the right way. Speaking about this, also the exhibition project Without Anesthesia, which in its internal logic does not address the general problems of presentation, already contemplates the relationships that arise between works of art, institutions and the public.

(…) Formally, the exhibition is developing on the one hand as a generational project, gathering works by mostly Croatian artists who are positioned in a dialogue with generationally close artists from the cultural space of the former SFRY and the international context, finding loose or distant connections and relationships. The Salon thus reflects the tradition of Zagreb as a place that has been included in the international context since the 1960s as a meeting place for artists, critics and institutions. This is the idea that has been inscribed into today´s curatorial practices. The exhibition aims to explore and gather art practices that focus on opportunities, breaks, transformations, failures, and insecurities in relation to contemporary cultural practices in the social and institutional context. Certain metanarratives evolve as a reflection on the format of the exhibition itself, its context, as an attempt to reposition the Zagreb Salon, and it is discursively thought through both through exhibition and the conversations within the side program.

(…) Thought as a space without sharp edges, the 54th Zagreb Salon entitled Without Anesthesia, focuses on the social conditioning of aesthetic and conceptual assumptions, the motivation of the artist. The exhibition explores tensions and fractures within dominant and invisible narratives, questions of uncertainty, tensions or collapses, of space and time, as a places of inscriptions of  fractures or potentials. The exhibition and series of events in the side program do not want to be another manifestation “frozen in time”, but wants to show the possibility of constant development within the system of contemporary art, which unconditionally needs to establish a relation to social facts.

(…) In order to articulate some of the formed places of interest, we accepted dialogue as a methodology, deciding on collaborative curatorial work as a dialogue, leaning our dialogue on the multitude of artistic positions.
