Art Forum’s Critic Pick: Maja Maljevic

Maja Maljev‘s exhibition, Polytekton, was chosen as Artforum International’s critic pick for Johannesburg.

“The centerpiece of her exhibition “Polytekton” is a group of sixty-one unique and individually numbered prints, “Documents for the People” (all works 2018). Nested in the democratic title of the print series, which shows off eight different techniques (including silk screen, etching, and monotype) using nine paper types, is a reference to two albums by rock band R.E.M.—Maljević, once a cadet in Tito’s Union of Pioneers of Yugoslavia, was a regular concertgoer in the former nonaligned state.” – Sean O’Toole
