Date and time

In her painting Maja Vukoje explores cultural hybridity and transculturality as basic conditions of our globalized lives. Over various stages of her artistic career, Vukoje has developed a distinct artistic language in which she not only focuses on the mixture and fusion of elements of different cultures as visual motifs. Vukoje also reflects these hybrid phenomena in the materials and artistic methods she applies, thus blurring the boundaries of painting as a medium.

From 12 November 2020, Belvedere 21 will be hosting the artist’s most comprehensive solo show to date. The exhibition will comprise some one hundred works from the past fifteen years, with an emphasis on her most recent work series. In the latter tropical fruits and so-called colonial goods like coffee and sugar come face to face with symbols of our digitized everyday lives, motifs from popular culture, and iconic works of painterly abstraction. In a spatial intervention specially designed for this exhibition, Maja Vukoje also interweaves her exploration of the formal language of Modernism with questions of display.

Curated by Luisa Ziaja.
