Yane Calovski (1973, Skopje) is an artist, researcher, publisher and a cultural activist. By converging notions of archiving while augmenting a method similar to the immediacy of drawing, his research is focused on designing discursive frameworks for the role of post-medium art in a wider cultural context. Calovski’s concerns range from the ways we analyze, understand and archive objects situated in the site-specificity of new cultural and political geographies. Calovski has exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb; the Guangdong Museum of Art; Malmö Konstmuseum; Bunkier Sztuki, Kraków, Poland; the Bauhaus Foundation, Dessau; Kunsthalle Baden-Baden; Kunsthaus Bregenz; the Salzburger Kunstverein; Tate Britain; the European Kunsthalle; the Baltic Art Center, Visby, Sweden; the Contemporary Art Center, Vilnius; the Drawing Center; and other venues. Collaboratively, with Hristina Ivanoska, he represented Macedonia at the 56th Venice Biennial (2015). Calovski’s work is part of numerous public and private collections including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Van Abbe Museum, the Deutsche Bank Collection and the Art Telekom Collection. His work was included in the Helsinki Photography Biennial 2014, D-0 ARK Underground 2012, Manifesta 7 (Bolzano, 2008) and Manifesta 3 (Ljubljana, 2000). Among other recognitions Calovski has been awarded the ORTung Fellowship 2012, the Allianz Kulturstiftung Fellowship 2004 and the Pew Fellowship in the Arts 2001. He is a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (1996) and Bennington College (1997), and completed post-graduate research programmes at CCA Kitakyushu (1999-2000), Jan van Eyck Academy (2002-2004) and Linköping University (2010). He is represented by Zak|Branicka. Yane Calovski lives and works in Skopje and Berlin. Yane Calovski is currently participant of a long-term research-based project CrossSections, curated by Basak Senova in Vienna, Helsinki, and Stockholm.
