Yane Calovski and Hristina Ivanoska: Epilogue (Form of an Argument)

Museum of Contemporary Art Skopje

7 November 2018 – 11 February 2011




The artistic practice of internationally recognized Macedonian artists, Yane Calovski and Hristina Ivanoska, which date since 2000, is complex and contextual. It is engaged with issues and concepts of architecture, history and art theory, and political reality, so it can create new process productions, storyline of displays and new knowledge. Their works are created in different media from drawing and text to object, installation and video.
