Charlama Depot, Sarajevo
In Skenderija Center, there are three contemporary art galleries– two are stately public institutions, one a grubby subversive alternative art space. On a recent weekend visit to Sarajevo, only the alternative space was open. It’s called Charlama Depot; I always have such a feeling of freedom and joy when I walk through the exhibition space. Its “storefront” is surrounded by nail salons and costume jewelry stores.
