Thematic guiding and presentation “Drawing in the Yugoslav art of the first half of the 20th century”, by Žaklina Ratković, a curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art
This is the last in a series of thematic lguiding and and lectures held in the framework
of the exhibition.
After nearly seven years of the Museum’s building at Ušće being closed down due to the protracted halt in its reconstruction, the exhibition “100 works from the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art. Yugoslav art from 1900 to 1945” is organised with the purpose of bringing out before the public the most relevant works and authors of the Yugoslav and Serbian art from respective period, that are kept as a part of the Museum’s collections. The idea about putting on this exhibition stemmed from the fact that, aside from occasional thematic and monographic exhibitions, the Museum was not able to present its collection in a more thorough way via its permanent display, and its very purpose, which consists in exhibiting the art of 20th c., was altogether suspended for indefinite period of time. The collection is the basic identity card of each and every museological institution and also its primary concern, and permanent display is an ever available resource of production and dissemination of knowledge on art, which implies that the inconceivable neglect of the state vis-à-vis the MoCA’s destiny has had serious repercussions as to both the Museum’s proper functioning and policy of its development, and its social, cultural and educational role. Therefore, showing the selection of works from its depot should somewhat remedy this impossible situation which resulted in years of absence of any representative display of modern and contemporary art in the Serbia’s capital, decreasing the number of museum-goers, and depriving professional audience, art lovers and young generations, of the direct insight into this significant art heritage of our country.
The exhibition features works by Đorđe Andrejević-Kun, Antun Augustinčić, Jovan Bijelić, Marko Čelebonović, Avgust Černigoj, Marijan Detoni, Petar Dobrović, Lojze Dolinar, Vilko Gecan, Krsto Hegedušić, Rihard Jakopič, Ignjat Job, Milan Konjović, France and Tone Kralj, Frano Kršinić, Mirko Kujačić, Milo Milunović, Petar Palavičini, Milena Pavlović Barilli, Mihailo Petrov, Nadežda Petrović, Zora Petrović, Vasa Pomorišac, Ivan Radović, Marko Ristić, Toma Rosandić, Veljko Stanojević, Eduard Stepančič, Sreten Stojanović, Zlatko Šulentić, Sava Šumanović, Ivan Tabaković, Vane Živadinović Bor etc.
During the exhibition various
accompanying programmes are due to take place, including lectures and
theme-centred guiding by curators of the Museum of Contemporary Art, and other
experts, as well as educational workshops. Please find enclosed the program.
Ticket price is 300 dinars, and the accompanying programmes are free off charge.
The exhibition is open every day, except on Mondays, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The Museum of Contemporary Art is
thankful to the Museum of Yugoslav History for providing it with a space
and for its assistance in the realisation of the exhibition.
