Art Weekend Belgrade is a nine-day manifestation initiated by KC Grad with an aim of promoting and developing the local contemporary art scene, to present local artist’s works to the wider audience, as well as to enable meeting and collaboration with foreign curators. Besides the main exhibition which will be held in Hotel Belgrade (20-29th of October) and will feature various art forms, from painting, drawing, sculpture to performance, video, audio and light installations, the program will also consist of an accompanying program which will be located at various locations in the city (20-24th of October).
“Hotel Belgrade” exhibition, as a part of the Art Weekend Belgrade manifestation, will showcase more than 50 individual artists and artistic groups in the 68 rooms of Hotel Belgrade. The fact that the hotel’s title contains the city name in it and it being an old, abandoned space with more than 60 unused rooms which can be used as exhibition spaces, made the AWB team certain that this was the perfect space for the development of their idea. The exhibition will be curated by An Paenhuysen, a Berlin-based curator.
Hotel Belgrade’s program will include guest appearances by local and foreign professionals within the field of contemporary art, talks and presentations.
The initiator of the AWB event is Ljudmila Stratimirović, the art director of KC grad.
