If you’re looking for art

Afrika Goran Jović at Ethnographic Museum: Jović photographs dominate the permeation of darkness and gaze. As a photographer, his pictures of male, female and children’s portraits are masterpieces in black or white. 

“Boundary” Exhibition at Gallery of Fine Arts: Boundary is the video of Carlos Aires (Spain), Paola Canevari (Italy), and Aurore Reinhard (Finland) which links the appropriation and reinterpretation of historically recognizable cultural patterns taken from either high or popular art. These are templates that aestheticize the strength and importance of sex and sexuality, which at some historical point in time represented the provocation to eventually become the classics of their period or mainstream entertainment. By their reinterpretation, contemporary artists return the subversive charge and explore the penitential status and the relationship between sexuality and power, ideology, and sensuality.
