Desk publications at the event What are you looking at?! at NGVA


The New Gallery of Visual Arts is dedicating the month of October to publications focussing on contemporary visual art and celebrates books through a cycle of talks with prominent writers, essayists and visual artists.

The exhibition space of the gallery will host an exhibition of publications from the fields of history, theory and critique of contemporary visual art, i.e. the publications of the Faculty for Media and Communication, Belgrade, University of the Arts, Belgrade, Publishing house “Orion Art”, Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade, Museum of Contemporary Art Vojvodina, Novi Sad, Office for Culture Studentski grad, Art Gallery “Nadežda Petrović”, Čačak, the Official Gazette, Publishing House “Clio”, Geopoetika and the Creative Europe Desk Serbia.

The cycle of talks will be opened by the host of the programme Muharem Bazdulj on Wednesday, 7th October at 6 p.m., who on this occasion wrote: “The programme of the New Gallery of Visual Arts is intended as a programme where writers also speak about visual arts and about their work in general, and in the space which is primarily intended for exhibitions, and not literary evenings. We want writers to paint paintings through their words, and for art works to be an inspiration for poetry. Precisely due to the unexpectedness of the primary framework, we are expecting a fortunate synergy of different art currents, and that with the help of real and imagined images in the background, writers can demonstrate the true power of words.”

Due to the current epidemiologic situation, the event will be realised with observance of all cautionary measures, wearing protective masks and maintain the safe distance, with a limited number of persons present in the exhibition space. The talks in the gallery can be attended by up to 20 persons, based on applications sent to the following email address:
