The Trust is pleased to share the first book published from research funded through the Research Incentive Grants scheme.
Dr Jon Blackwood (Gray's School of Art, Robert Gordon University) has recently published Critical Art in Contemporary Macedonia (Mala Galerija, Skopje).
"This book is the first in-depth study, in English, of contemporary art in Macedonia. Featuring a critical introduction, and over twenty interviews with contemporary artists, cultural workers, curators and writers, this book offers space for a range of critical voices, providing a deep understanding of the role of the critical contemporary artist in Macedonia, and the cultural contexts in which they operate."
The book displays images of both the artists and their work alongside short interviews of the artists discussing their art practice and the role of art in contemporary Macedonia.
