Street Gallery, Belgrade

Cover art for Culture with Robert Bound

Belgrade’s major galleries have been closed for more than a decade. But the past few years have seen a boom in small city-centre art spaces that are giving artists somewhere to show and develop their works. You just need to know where to look – and fortunately our Belgrade correspondent, Guy De Launey, can sniff out a gallery even if it’s tucked away down a dark alley.

Mmuseumm, New York

Cover art for Culture with Robert Bound

When curator Alex Kalman was searching for a space in 2012 to house his museum collection, he never imagined the final destination would be in an abandoned elevator shaft in a near-deserted cobbled street. But the tiny space has become an integral part of viewing his collection of things, a Pamuk-like array of everyday objects. Monocle’s Clarissa Pharr drops in to find out more about Mmuseumm.

Chapter 4

A gallery down the line

Cover art for Culture with Robert Bound

Texas artist Jesse Morgan Barnett is the curator of a new artspace but it is not a physical place to gather. There are no walls on which to hang anything that can be seen. One can only access the exhibitions by picking up the phone and dialing the number 1-800-789-2228. Lyndsay Knecht explains how the phone-line gallery has created a new medium for artists and a new way to think about space.
