FIRST Midwest Exhibition of Contemporary Serbian Art at Hunt Gallery
Opening Public Reception Friday, MARCH 21, 2014
Altered Connections: Recent Art from Serbiawill open with a public reception on Friday, March 21 from 6 – 8 pm at the Hunt Gallery at Webster University. Comprised of video installations, photography and textiles, Altered Connections will introduce some of the important and, in some cases, provocative work being created by Serbian artists.
With accelerated globalization, much recent art practice has emphasized a multi-dimensional understanding of identity. Serbian artists – and the Yugoslavian diaspora – are at the forefront of this global approach. The exhibition will include works by eight internationally acclaimed Serbian artists: Dejan Kaludjerović, Aleksandra Lalić, Tanja Ostojić, Vesna Pavlović, Ivan Petrović, Vahida Ramujkić, Zoran Todorović, and Katarina Zdjelar.
A panel discussion featuring Serbian exhibition artists Dejan Kaludjerović, Vesna Pavlović, and Vahida Ramujkić will be presented on Friday, March 21 from 11:30-1:30 in Sunnen Lounge in the University Center at Webster University.
