Multimedia installation on exhibit in Sangren

Nov. 2, 2006

KALAMAZOO--A multimedia installation by artist-in-residence Dejan Atanackovic goes on display today through Nov. 17 in Sangren Hall Gallery II. The exhibit is open to the public free of charge weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Since 1994, the visual art projects by Atanackovic have been presented internationally in numerous exhibitions in the form of video installation, music and public intervention, as well as curatorial concepts featuring works of artists, art students and psychiatric patients. His works have been selected for international art festivals in Florence and Milan, Italy; Belgrade, Serbia; Sarajevo, Bosnia; and Quebec, among others.

In collaboration with Belgrade's Center for Cultural Decontamination, he developed a public art project titled "Perfect Future" produced by the center and financed by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Atanackovic was born in Belgrade in 1969 and graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence. Since 2000, he has been teaching multimedia at the U.S. university program Studio Art Centers International in Florence.
