Artnauts Group Exhibition Curated by Dr. George Rivera
Historical Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sarajevo
Zmaja od Bosne 5, Sarajevo 71000, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Exhibit Opens: February 7, 2019
“The Artnauts are well named. They take off for outer spaces (a.k.a the margins) where angels are in short supply, filling gaps that shouldn’t be there, speaking out where few can or will. What an incredible record…”  –Art critic, Lucy Lippard
The Artnauts is an artist collective that uses the visual arts as a tool for addressing global issues while connecting with artists from around the world. The name derives from combining the words “art” and “astronaut” as a way to describe the process of exploring uncharted territory in the world at large (for example, currently the collective has an exhibition that is traveling down the Amazon River for three years to over 30 remote sites). The name also denotes the practice that is “not” art as usual, going beyond the confines of the traditional or conventional art world and blurring the boundaries between art, activism, and social practice. The Artnauts have worked at the intersection of critical consciousness and contemporary artistic practice to impact change for almost two decades with over 150 exhibitions on four continents.
