“Art That Works/Catch Me!” is a selection of art works striving to review the current art production and to redefine the auratic quality of a work of art in the context of the contemporary society.

Viewed from this perspective, the project presents artwork that reaches the observer through its simplicity and is based on a pure and clear idea and articulates itself precisely within the medium. The selection focuses on works that do not presuppose additional explanation, works whose perception creates the basis for the process of both reading and understanding. In doing this, art works should not work by means of cheap and seductive tricks and conceits; they should stress that art can still work that it can speak about reality without vulgarising, simplifying or banalising the reality itself.
The October Art Salon is a representative event featuring current art production in the sphere of visual arts. It was established in 1960, under the auspices of the City Assembly of Belgrade, as an exhibition of the best art works in the sphere of fine arts. In 1967 it became an important review of the current trends in applied arts, too. Owing to its tradition of four decades, the October Art Salon represents an important segment in the study of the contemporary art in Serbia and Montenegro, a great exhibition whose selectors are prominent experts in this area. In the course of its history, the Salon has changed its concept and organisational forms, but it has remained a strong challenge to creative consciousness.
