55th October Salon

October Salon in Belgrade is the most important exhibition of contemporary art in Serbia and can look back on a long tradition. Founded in the 1960s, October Salon for a long time worked as an overview on contemporary art presenting the most important artists from the Serbian art community. Since 2004, international curators have been appointed to select the participating artists. Furthermore, the concept has changed to a thematic group exhibition. In addition, international artists are presented in the show now that takes place at different venues in Belgrade each year.

This year’s 55th October Salon is curated by Nicolaus Schafhausen, director of Kunsthalle Wien, and Vanessa Joan Müller, Head of Dramaturgy at Kunsthalle Wien. Under the title “Disappearing Things”, it is dedicated to the role of collective and individual forms of remembrance in the digital era.
October Salon is organised and produced by the Belgrade Culture Centre, financed by the city of Belgrade and supported by the Ministry for Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia.
