The exhibition “New Tendencies ’60”, a tribute to the Italian art scene in the 1960s was officially opened at the Gallery of the Student Cultural Centre (SKC) in Belgrade by the Italian Ambassador to Serbia, H.E. Luca Gori.
The focus is on three exhibitions: “Gencay, Brtka, Franchini” staged in Rome in 1964, “Forme presenti” also staged in Rome in 1965 and the exhibition “Illumination” staged in Trento in 1967.
The exhibition presents the artwork of Nobuya Abe and Shu Takahashi from Japan, Aldo Schmid, Bruno Bruno Conte, Paolo Patelli and Antonio Franchini from Italy, Gencay Kasapçi from Turkey, Marcia Hafif from the United States, and Milena Čubraković and Mira Brtka from Yugoslavia, all of whom lived and created in Rome in the 1960s.
The Italian cultural scene of the 1960s was characterized by a distinct diversity and strength of artistic directions and authorial expressions, in the period before the development of postmodernism. The three exhibitions represented cultural and artistic events of international importance, considering that artists from different countries of the world participated in them.
The exhibition will be open until December 28th. The SKC Gallery is open from 11 am to 7 pm on work days and from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturdays.
