Contemporary Art in Zagreb
As part of its continuing commitment to the support of art and artists from Central and Eastern Europe and Russia, Aksenov Family Foundation created a guide to Zagreb contemporary art scene “Newer Tendencies”, which highlights some of the leading institutions and key figures (including Sanja Ivecović and David Maljković), but also artists to watch (like Dora Budor, Helena Janečić and Igor Grubić) and often overlooked points of interest that help contribute to the city’s character.
“Understanding Zagreb and its art history is the critical first step to grasping the Croatian contemporary art world as a whole.”
The guide is co-authored by by Kate Sutton, a writer and curator based in Zagreb, and a regular contributor to Artforum, Bidoun, Freize, and Leap; and Maja Marković, an art historian and curator, and CEEPUS grant recipient for research in contemporary art in Croatia in 2015.
