Publication presentation and unveiling of new artworks.
Artist in conversation with curators Adriana Belay & Nicole Sheyerer.

Join us for the presentation of Zlatan Vehabović's new artworks, complimentary of his publication 'An Atlas of the Lesser World,' published by the Museum of Arts and Crafts Zagreb. This intimate publication presentation follows his homonymous exhibitions at the National Museum of Modern Art Zagreb and the Museum of Fine Arts Split.

Drawing from his unique sensibility and expressive style, often characterized by a narrative approach and collage methodology, Vehabović embarked on his artistic journey using the museum's vast collection of over a hundred thousand digital records. The outcome of this approach is a series of conceptually and formally layered compositions, where the intricate connections and processes preceding the painting’'s creation become distinctly visible. Furthermore it showcases the exceptional skill and consistent visual language for which Vehabovic has long been recognised.

Our aim is to offer you an extraordinary art gathering that enables a genuine connection with Zlatan Vehabović — one of the most captivating artistic voices of our era. You'll also have the opportunity to engage directly in moderated discussions with curators Adriana Belay and Nicole Scheyerer, delving deeply into the development of Contemporary Art.

Nomad's social and cultural mission is to establish a platform that contributes to the co-creation and promotion of contemporary cultural dialogue. Our ultimate goal is to shape the market for regional artists in Central Europe, fostering enduring cohesive networks in the process.

Zlatan Vehabović, based in Zagreb, was born in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1982. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts Zagreb, where he is currently also teaching. Noteworthy exhibitions include MoCA Zagreb, MoMA Zagreb, MoFA Split, MoMA Dubrovnik, Stadt Museum Mainz, and the Center for Contemporary Art Hudson Valley. His works are homed in collections such as  the Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb, Albertina Modern Vienna, European Central Bank Art Collection Frankfurt, European Parliament Collection Brussels, Erste Fragments Zagreb, Lauba Foundation Zagreb, Maistra Collection Rovinj, and Eileen S.
