International presentation | press to exit project space, Skopje (MK) | Art Market Budapest 2015 | 8 - 12 October 2015
press to exit project space has the honor to announce the participation in the 5th edition of Art Market Budapest, the international art fair in Hungary, running from 8 – 12 October 2015 at Cultural Center Millenaris in Budapest. The fair will offer a comprehensive range of art works from around 30 countries represented by local and international galleries and non – profit spaces.
In the same time its concept is to present a unique artistic composition in perhaps the most exciting exhibition halls in Europe, that, while it features some of the exhibitors welcomed even by the oldest art fairs, gives an emphasised presence to a younger generation of galleries and artists. In that way the fair defines a new cultural region: Young Europe, where we may find combined influences from the former Communist countries stretching from the Baltic States to the Balkans, and from such sources of cultural inspiration as Turkey or Israel in the South, countries of Central Asia in the East, or even a progressive new generation of artists from the already established West.
press to exit project space will have its representation as a part of The Guest Balkan program that examines 8 Western Balkan countries involved in the so-called Brdo Process (and in particular in its 2013 revival); the assortment, therefore, is rather rich as it covers art from Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Slovenia. While Guest Balkan welcomes the whole region of the Western Balkans, but – in addition to presenting the cultural links within – it emphasizes the diversity within the region, showcasing local and individual artistic endeavors as well.
The exhibition will feature works by artists Dijana Bogdanovska, Yane Calovski, Hristina Ivanoska, Gjorgje Jovanovik and Velimir Zernovski. It represents one stage of the ongoing curatorial project Where (not) to go? in the frames of the curatorial activities of press to exit project space. The chosen artists are connected in a cohesive collective through the political and social aspects in the selected works.
