About the presentation
During October and November, 3 artists from each country – UK, Greece, Turkey, and Serbia spent six weeks in Athens, Istanbul or Belgrade as participants of the residential program stays within the Connect for Creativity project, which will result in a group exhibition in London in 2020.
Selected participants are from different backgrounds such as architecture, visual arts, performative arts, design, literature, music, sound and video, film and new media, while the Belgrade’s residency hosted Theo Prodromidis (Greece), Oguz Emre Bal (Turkey), Ioana Man (UK) and Sanja Anđelković (Serbia).
Participating authors developed their artworks based on the curator’s concept, through their own perspective and practice. Final artworks will be presented in smaller exhibitions in each city, and in Belgrade they will be exhibited at the Science and Technology Museum from November 15th to November 29th. The four artworks are going to be a part of the permanent exhibition of the Museum, creating a dynamic dialogue between tech heritage and recent implications of technology, expressed through the prism of each of these artists.
More than 250 artists applied for the open call for residencies, while the final selection was made by the curatorial team of the Furtherfield organization (UK), that will, at the same time, going to host the final exhibition in March 2020.
