In parallel with the Kale, Cultural Fortress project, the Museum of Contemporary Art started developing another ongoing public art project titled Sculptural. As the title sugests the project is about the sculpture as one of the most widespread artistic media in communicating the values of public space. The project is in a way a continuation of the successful short-lived series of the so called Interventions in the public space organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art from the beginning of the 1980-ies under the guidance of the Macedonian artists Simon Shemov and Kocho Fidanovski. With Sculptural the Museum of Contemporary Art intends to use on a permanent basis the park around the Museum and the wider surrounding area of the Kale hill as an exhibition platform for temporary or permanent sculptural or multimedia public art projects.
Sculptural 2016 presents eight public art projects by the artists Petar Hadzi Boshkov, Simon Shemov, Nada Prlja, Jovan Shumkovski, Igor Toshevski, OPA (Slobodanka Stevchevska and Denis Saraginovski), and architects Daniel Serafimovski and Dejan Ivanovski.
