October Salon is seen as one of the most prestigious cultural events in Serbia, and with good reason, as it is the largest manifestation in the region in the domain of visual arts, with the exhibits from renown artists from all around the world. Since 2014. October Salon became a biennial, giving it more importance and more time to prepare, and the chance to call on more and more artists.

Gunnar and Danielle Kvaran heading the Salon

Art director of 57th October Salon in Belgrade is a seasoned director of museums on Iceland and in Norway Gunnar Kvaran, while curator of the Salon is Danielle Kvaran, who worked for decades on major exhibitions in France and on Iceland.

57th October Salon will last from September 15th to October 28th and will take place on seven locations, with three of them – Artget Gallery, Art gallery and Podroom gallery – are parts of Belgrade Cultural Center, with other spaces being U10, Gallery of SANU, Remont gallery and Belgrade city museum.

Salon’s motto is “The marvelous cacophony”. It underlines the trend of greater and greater differences in the approach to art of various artists and the fact that it is today a fact of life and one of the postulates of the Salon.

From Yoko Ono to Takashi Murakami

Among 72 artists whose works will exhibited on 57th October Salon are, among others, Anselm Kiefer, Erro, Olafur Eliasson, Larry Bell, Cindy Sherman, Tom Sachs, Yoko Ono, Helen Marten, Eva Kotatkova, Dominik Lang, Cao Fei, Takashi Murakami and many younger generation artists.

It will be a great honor for Sky Apartments to receive some of the visitors and maybe even exhibitors on October Salon, as we are interested to hear comments about the design of our apartments, and there is none better informed about the trends in visual arts than those who gather for the Salon.
