Sam Durant: Nonaligned Echoes, Gifts and Returns

September 10 – November 10, 2024

Curator: Natalija Vujošević

Museum of Contemporary Art
Podgorica, Montenegro

“Nonaligned Echoes, Gifts and Returns” extends from the work titled “Proposal for Nonaligned Monuments, Free Movement” (2020) and continues Sam Durant’s study of the legacy of the NAM and the post-colonial period. This pursuit has brought him to the Museum of Contemporary Art of Montenegro, which houses the exceptional Art Collection of Non-Aligned (formerly the Gallery of Art of Non-Aligned Countries). The artist will conceive a series of new works engaged in a nuanced dialogue with selected artworks and gifts within the collection, aiming to, throughout the process, contemplate, learn, and expand upon the alternative world visions fostered by the NAM.
