‘Santa Claus is Broke’, Belgrade

The novelty here is to make your home into a gallery, organise a grand opening and for eighteen continuous days exhibit the work of ten serbian artists. The formula is Nathalie Boscq’s and this is her third version in Belgrade. Paintings, drawings, photographs and prints are on view everywhere and the informality of the setting, with prints, paintings, photographs and drawings propped up on shelves, or hung from walls or columns, framed or unframed, within the clutter of a busy household works well. She has lots of open space and the party atmosphere of the opening makes the exhibition look more like an art fair, encouraging people to buy when they might not from a gallery. As Santa Claus and everyone else is broke this year, all the art on display was priced at 250 euros or less. Some artists did exceptionally well in terms of sales. The ten selected to exhibit were: Leka Mladenovic, Borko Petrovic, Ivan Jovanovic, Mina Sarenac, Vladimir Milanovic, Maja Djorjevic, Sladjana Stankovic, Tamara Miodragovic, Natasa Krstic and Nemanja Maras. Curated by Nathalie Boscq and Adeline Royer. Opened 5th December, closed 17th December, Kursumlijska 14. For more information: www.nanaopi.com
