Stacion - Center for Contemporary Art Prishtina is pleased to announce the opening of the exhibition “Moshe: A story in continuation”, a curatorial project by Albert Heta constructed on selected works of Orhan Kurtolli, and the personal archival documentation of the artist.

Orhan Kurtolli (1952) was born and lives in Prishtina. His paintings usually refer directly to the engaged close observation on the environment of the city, its conditions, people and architecture, and the Kosovan society. During his long observation, he experienced both historical developments in the visual arts in Kosovo, and the rapid developments and turnovers in the social and political context.

The National Gallery of Kosovo has shown Orhan Kurtolli's work in the solo exhibition titled 'The Oniric Coordinates of the Subconscious' curated by Gëzim Qendro (2014).

Moshe's group exhibitions include: the Muslim Mulliqi Prize “Are our memories history?”, curated by Iara Boubnova (The National Gallery of Kosovo, 2018); “Drawing Today”, curated by Ismet Jonuzi (The National Gallery of Kosovo, 2018); the International Drawing Biennale, curated by Nebih Muriqi (The National Gallery of Arts, 2015); the Muslim Mulliqi Prize IX “It doesn’t always have to be beautiful, unless it’s beautiful” curated by Galit Eilat and Charles Esche (The National Gallery of Kosovo, 2012); the Muslim Mulliqi Prize VIII, curated by Valbona Rexhepi and Fitore Isufi - Koja (The Arts Gallery of Kosovo, 2010); the Gjon Mili Prize “Gjon Mili VI” curated by Andrew Testa (The Arts Gallery of Kosovo, 2006) among others.

The exhibition is the first iteration of the research project in continuation, and a collaboration with the artist “observing us and seeing with new eyes his work” exhibited at the Boxing Club.

"Moshe: A story in continuation" is part of the Space Program of Stacion - Center for Contemporary Art Prishtina.

Visits of the exhibition are organized in compliance with the measures for the prevention of the Covid-19 pandemic recommended by the National Institute of Public Health of Kosovo - IKSHPK and the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Kosovo.

"Moshe: A story in continuation" is supported by The Municipality of Prishtina, The Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports of the Republic of Kosovo, The Network of Independent Art and Culture Institutions - RRIPAK, x-print and DZG.
