The curators of the 58th edition of the October Salon in Belgrade have been appointed by the city’s Cultural Centre: Ilaria Marotta and Andrea Baccin will direct the 58th edition of the salon, occurring from next September 19 to November 1, 2020, in various venues throughout the city.
The two have been working together as an editorial and curatorial collective since 2009, collaborating as cofounders and editors in chief of the international art magazine and publishing house CURA.

The chosen title for the 2020 October Salon is “The Dreamers”, expressing the curators’ will to explore the blurred line between the oniric world and reality but also to cast a spotlight on the agents of imagination and creativity. Marotta and Baccin will select around 50 participating artists, with a special focus on emerging talents from the Balcanic area. Besides them, to be announced in the spring of 2020, six young artists will also be featured, chosen through an open call launched by the Italian CURA.

Founded by the City of Belgrade in 1960, the October Salon is the biennial event which better represents the emerging or most influential art tendencies in Serbia. Over the last editions, the festival also widened its scope to international influences, inviting art professionals from different countries.
