About the Salon
The Salon of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade was inaugurated in the Spring of 1961 at 14 Pariska St. under the name of Modern Gallery. It started off four years before the Museum of Contemporary Art at Ušće was opened. It was the first gallery in Belgrade with permanent exhibition activity and clearly defined conception. The Salon’s exhibition practice was at all times centred on younger artists and the latest tendencies in the art-world, as well as on presenting the work of prominent foreign artists. Almost all major visual artists from former Yugoslavia had the opportunity to show their work to the Belgrade audience in a solo exhibition.
The concept behind the Salon of the MoCAB still revolves around presenting the most up-to-date currents in visual arts, most of all through solo exhibitions of contemporary artists, national and foreign, but also through organised presentations, panel discussions and lectures. Besides, the Salon is opened for theme-centred exhibitions authored by curators concerned with contemporary tendencies who are given the opportunity to have their projects realised. Thus, the Salon maintains its role of the most prestigious exhibiting space in Belgrade, and at the same time occupies a thriving position on the global scene.
