Part of her photographs are featured in the 30 years of Skopje Jazz Festival
monograph (SJF, 2011) and Music and Conversations
and More Music and Conversations by journalist and organizer Nenad Georgievski
For me, the organizing of this exhibition is a possibility to introduce Macedonian jazz musicians, both the well-known and the unknown to an audience in Belgrade. The Youth Center in Belgrade is an institution where important cultural events have taken place over the years. This institution is also the organizer of the Belgrade Jazz Festival which this year will start when Jazzthetica closes. I’m glad that we shall have an exhibition at the heart of this jazz temple in Belgrade,“ says organizer Nenad Geogievski of Nomad-Art Skopje organization.
This exhibition was first staged in 2018 at the Cinematheque of Macedonia as part of the Skopje Cinema City film festival when several jazz films were screened. For the exhibition in Belgrade, the selection was extended with photographs from this year’s editions of festivals such as Skopje Jazz Festival and Today It’s All About Jazz which took place in October.
