NEXT Balkan: Albanian Contemporary Art in Sofia

The exhibition features eleven artists, representatives of the emerging art scene in Albania. Their presentation is part of the NEXT Balkan platform, which reviews trends in the contemporary art on the Balkans. Following the presentation of Serbian contemporary art in 2019, the current event represents the curatorial perspective on the Albanian art scene by Adela Demetja, founder and director of Tirana Art Lab – Centre for Contemporary Art.

Ledia Kostandini featured with her drawing project “Dear Balcony” – a quarantine diary

What is taking place on the contemporary art scene in the Balkan countries today? Can we find shared opinions and common trends? How do we see the “future” of art can and we talk about a shared narrative following the legacy of the major Balkan exhibitions?

This is a part of the questions that the NEXT Balkan platform attempts to ask and elaborate on.
