Aleksandra Chevreska

National Archaeological Museum of Republic of North Macedonia

Senior Curator of Iron Age Collection

Country: North Macedonia

ITP Year: 2021


Aleksandra mainly works with the Iron Age collection at the National Archaeological Museum of North Macedonia. As a senior curator, she is involved with the curation of permanent displays and temporary exhibitions. Aleksandra also organises educational and public programmes, workshops and lectures within the museum.

Professional interests include mainly archaeological excavations and exhibition design, museum marketing and current trends of virtual reconstructions at museums. Her field of research and subject of PhD thesis is the Iron Age Period at the Balkans. She is also interested in collecting data from archives and libraries, as well as mastering new technologies in photography and digitalisation.

Outside of museum and field work, a big personal interest for her is cinematography, more precisely production design. She has been involved in many North Macedonian movies, working as a set decorator in the Art Department. She also loves to travel a lot and is a huge fan of outdoor activities.

At the British Museum
During her time on the International Training Programme, Aleksandra was based in the Department of Greece and Rome and her partner placement was spent at Manchester Art Gallery, Manchester Museum and Whitworth Art Gallery.

In 2021 participants were asked to plan and propose a temporary exhibition on the theme of journeys, drawing on their existing museum experience and the skills learnt during the programme.  Aleksandra worked with Nosiba Osman (Sudan) and Durakhshona Boboeva (Tajikistan) on her Object in focus project. Their exhibition proposal was titled Beyond Belief: journey of the rain animals.

Aleksandra’s place on the ITP was generously supported by the Marie-Louise von Motesiczky Charitable Trust.
