On Normality: Art in Serbia | American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center

May 5–June 7

"Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade, this exhibition presents young Serbian artists creating works about art, society, trauma, and normality. The exhibition shows artistic projects which directly or indirectly reflect political, economical, cultural, and everyday climate in the country, and the position on the crossroads between longing to participate in the international artistic currents and keeping local specificities, between direct political engagement and disillusioned escapism, between the tragic and the humorous, between modest and pretensions, between theoretical and intuitive, between participation and isolation."
Many of the artists are internationally renowned, including Raša Todosijevic, Milica Tomic, Škart, and Biljana Djurdjevic.
