Considering there was so much happening in the New York art sphere over the past few weeks, we’d like to bring to your attention a smart show that you might have missed.
The fleeting Where (not) to go?, organized by Press to Exit project space of Skopje, Macedonia, was on view from 16 February to 1 March 2015 at Gallery MC. Exploring urban issues through contemporary art from Macedonia, the exhibition is the latest incarnation of a curatorial research project first presented at the 2013 Instanbul Contemporary.
Curator Jovanka Popova poses complex questions: How do social and political clashes alter public space? What is the effect of issues such as social inequality, political, cultural and economic oppression, and educational reform on urban development in Macedonia?
Artists Hristina Ivanoska, Nada Prlja, Neda Firfova, Filip Jovanovski, Daniel Serafimovski, Gjorgje Jovanovik, Tihomir Topuzovski, Aleksandar Kovachevski, Nikola Uzunovski, Vladimir Lukash, and Yane Calovski respond in a range of media.
