"Art That Works/Catch Me!" is a selection of art 
works striving to review the current art 
production and to redefine the auratic quality of 
a work of art in the context of the contemporary 

Viewed from this perspective, the project 
presents artwork that reaches the observer 
through its simplicity and is based on a pure and 
clear idea and articulates itself precisely 
within the medium. The selection focuses on works 
that do not presuppose additional explanation, 
works whose perception creates the basis for the 
process of both reading and understanding. In 
doing this, art works should not “work” by means 
of cheap and seductive tricks and conceits; they 
should stress that art can still “work” – that it 
can speak about reality without vulgarising, 
simplifying or banalising the reality itself.

The October Art Salon is a representative event 
featuring current art production in the sphere of 
visual arts. It was established in 1960, under 
the auspices of the City Assembly of Belgrade, as 
an exhibition of the best art works in the sphere 
of fine arts. In 1967 it became an important 
review of the current trends in applied arts, 
too. Owing to its tradition of four decades, the 
October Art Salon represents an important segment 
in the study of the contemporary art in Serbia 
and Montenegro, a great exhibition whose 
selectors are prominent experts in this area. In 
the course of its history, the Salon has changed 
its concept and organisational forms, but it has 
remained a strong challenge to creative
