Suzana Milevska Wins Zabel Award
ARTMargins Print editorial board member, art historian, curator and theorist of visual art and culture Suzana Milevska from Skopje, Macedonia is the recipient of this year’s Igor Zabel Award for Culture and Theory. Initiated and funded by ERSTE Foundation, the biennial award recognises outstanding cultural activities related to the Central and South Eastern European region. The award ceremony was held in Warsaw at the Zachęta National Gallery of Art on 16 November, accompanied by a conference and presentation of the book Igor Zabel: Contemporary Art Theory. Milevska was honoured for her interdisciplinary approach to both theoretical and curatorial practices. Her work focuses on topics such as art in post-socialist and transitional societies, collaborative and participatory art practices, gender differences and feminist art, and the construction of visual memory in photographic archives, to name just a few areas. Milevska also remains active in the local Macedonian art scene as a curator and theorist, where her work plays a vital role for the next generation of artists, theorists and curators.
