THE VI YUGOSLAV BIENNIAL OF YOUNG ARTISTS
05 July 2004 – 05 August 2004
Vrsac & Belgrade, Serbia & Montenegro
The YUGOSLAV BIENNIAL OF YOUNG ARTISTS is the biggest
exhibition of
young art within the Balkan region.
Traditionally taking place in Vrsac, a northern town
renowned for its
turbulent cultural and political history, the
Biennial showcases a wide selection of recently
produced artworks and
plays a crucial role in keeping local art
scene as vital and vibrant as it is today. Serbia &
Montenegro is well
known for its underground art scene and
thriving music and club culture. The YUGOSLAV BIENNIAL
OF YOUNG ARTISTS
is one of the country’s most
prominent cultural institutions and the 2004 event is
an important
signifier of re-claiming Serbia & Montenegro’s
status as an equal member of the international
community.
Bringing together more than 90 widely acclaimed
international and
national artists – from the US to Lithuania,
from the Netherlands to Israel – the YUGOSLAV BIENNIAL
OF YOUNG ARTISTS
2004 reflects relevant trends on
the global art scene. Its main aim consists in
offering a brash,
playful, fresh, and – above all – young view of the
complexities of contemporary art and its surrounding
contexts.
The YUGOSLAV BIENNIAL OF YOUNG ARTISTS 2004
incorporates a series of
concurrent exhibitions and events
in Belgrade:
