Slavimir Stojanovic Exhibition
STOP - Instructions, Directions and Other Cases

Opening at 7 p.m., November 18th, 2010
Galerija Nova, Andricev Venac 6, Belgrade

The exhibition presents the influence of mass communication on an individual and his/hers perception of life in the contemporary world. The noise that arises between the message and the manner it is transmitted - using an obvious, generally accepted and seemingly clear visual language of commands and instructions - leaves a deep mark on the personal life of every individual. The 30 works of art presented aim to explain and bring closer this phenomenon using graphic satire and plain, clean humor. The exhibition at the Gallery Nova summons 25 years of labor in the visual communication for the commercial purposes, inspired by reactions of target and focus groups, customary in promoting product sales.
