On the Invisible Exhibition

Street art in Belgrade by TKV

Institut français, the French cultural centre in Belgrade, is putting on an exhibition of street art by leading local graffiti artist, TKV.

The French Institute is proud of having supported exchanges between street artists for many years now and is now bringing us this fantastic exhibition introducing visitors to the Belgrade graffiti and street art scene through the works of one of its most prominent artists. TKV will create several works specifically for this exhibition but will also show existing work in a new light. The central aim of the exhibition is not just to show you art in a sterile gallery space but to inspire you to get your walking boots on and see the art in its natural environment – out on the streets of Belgrade.

Since she made her first stencils as a teenager back in 2004, TKV has gone from strength to strength to become one of the most prominent and respected street artists in Belgrade. Referencing pop-culture tropes and other artists such as Edvard Munch’s The Scream or Kiss by Gustav Klim, TKV has brought the streets to life and fired the imagination of passers-by. And all this at a time when the art form in Belgrade needed an injection of some new blood to kick-start its rejuvenation. So, in many respects, TKV is one of the artists that revived street art and allowed it to blossom.

This should make this exhibition very worthwhile.

The On the Invisible exhibition will be on from 12 December to 31 January at Institut français. For more information, visit the Institute’s facebook page.

About Us:
We live in Belgrade and have always wanted to share what this wonderful city has to offer to its visitors and to those who live and work here. That was what inspired us to create the Living in Belgrade website and community back in 2010. Since then the site has grown and undergone many improvements and with it the community of followers who use social media to get in touch with us and with each other. In short, we want to build on the successes of Living in Belgrade and continue to be a good neighbour and host to people who come to Belgrade from abroad.
Our Community:
Living in Belgrade is an English language website, the focus of a broad English-speaking online community who live and work in Belgrade or visit frequently on business, for pleasure or to catch up on some shopping. Our aim is to help them get the most out of their Belgrade experience and to ensure Belgrade is a place they’ll remember fondly and to which they’ll return again and again.
