TONY MASLIC (cultural producer, artist, Cyprus)
„Anatomy of Conceptual Evolution, the Internal Experience“
The world in a state of flux, what are the perceptions and reflections in art, how is art evolving and how can we make sense of it all. No simple answers there. Tony Maslic will talk about his experiences of his personal journey to grasp these issues, and appropriates them as his work territory.
Tony (Anton Dragan) Maslic (b. 1970, Breda, the Netherlands) has been working in a multitude of various media and disciplines. Throughout his work he has explored the relationship of space with politics, social economics, psychology, urbanism, pre- and post war social conflicts, violence, propaganda, cultural identity, group behavior, consumerism and effects of Capitalism. He has participated since 1994 in 39 group exhibitions, art biennials and events in Holland, Serbia, Canada, Mexico, Cyprus, Slovenia, Croatia, Belgium, Germany, Iceland, Czech Republic, Italy and Canada. He did 3 Solo Exhibitions in Cyprus, the Netherlands and Serbia. In 2014 he represented together with George Marcou, Cyprus at the Venice Biennale of Architecture. Further he initiated, organized and curated 9 international multidisciplinary exhibitions and events in several European countries. In addition he formed an international underground network for artists, 'Noise of Coincidence', which provided for starting artists a platform for exhibitions, theory & discussions, and collaborations. He researched and published the transition from stationary to mobile production in various arts disciplines focussing on the consequences of technology on cultural production, locally and globally and its forecasted impact on society.
Tony Maslic is a Cyprus based artist and presently artist in residency at the Museumsquartier Vienna. He will be exhibiting a work together with the artist George Marcou at the Schauraum of the Angewandte, MQ Vienna, at the end of January 2016.
