“Kvaka 22” is alternative artistic space, which included Museum, Art Gallery and space for organizing music events.
Kvaka 22 is an alternative art space created by a collection of young authors. Impressed as a place to meet young artists, exchange ideas, present and create their works. The space serves as a platform for the realization of various art projects and educational – practical workshops, as well as for connecting and cooperation of young artists from Belgrade, the Balkans, Europe and the World.
Museum is a set of objects and documentation found in an abandoned building on Ruzveltova Street 39, in Belgrade.
The former workshop for the repair of musical instruments of military orchestras of the SFR Yugoslavia, has ceased its work and the mentioned object was abandoned ten years ago.
NOTUS Studio is an artist run space, including NOTUS RES, an Artist Residency program, which takes place in the studio. Notus was founded by two greek artists (Vaggelis Savvas, and Anestis Ioannou), while it operates along with the support of friends, curators and other artists.
The space is used as a studio and opens its gates often to organize exhibitions, artist residencies and events. An initiative that promotes artistic practices and supports experimental ways of art production, curatorship and presentation.

Nine And A Half Weeks
Elaine Levy Project is pleased to announce Nine and a Half Weeks, a series of weekly projects that will start on October 31st, 2009 and take place till the end of January 2010.
During almost three months, from November till January, Elaine Levy Project is taking a break and leaving space to Nine And A Half Weeks, a test project on the edge of the usual gallery functioning.
The dull context of the art market encouraged us to propose a playful and free reinterpretation of the gallery space. Thus Nine and has Half Weeks will propose little experimental forms out of the commercial constraints and which will address a wider public than usual.
Most of the projects will be open construction sites and thought as such, or at least they will offer a range of devices to activate the space. The audience will be invited according to constantly renewed modalities, and the artists will invest the workspace as they want.
Nine and has Half Weeks is thought to be a place not only dedicated to the spectator, but also as a work and research space...
Finally the title is a funny reference, first of all to the duration of this programming, but is besides an invitation for new improvised experiments in our small kitchen, by means of everyday cheap objects.

"Our constructions transform space, turning interior and exterior boundaries inside out and toying with the perception of a subjective reality. They demand visitors’ active participation, putting them into the position of being an explorer. These environments break down visual and intellectual habits, testing the explorers and obliging them to trust in their senses. Often compared to cocoons or burrows, these installations harbour striking powers. They provoke ambiguous emotional reactions in visitors, like dreams which mingle curiosity, surprise and discomfort." The chapuisat.
