For the first time, the paintings of the greatest Serbian painters, such as Uroš Predić and Paja Jovanović, the European masters, such as El Greco, Élisabeth-Louise Vigée Le Brun and Marc Chagall, and contemporary painters, such as Mladen Miljanović, Vladan Jeremić, Rene Redle, Safet Zec and Taus Makhacheva, will be exhibited in Novi Sad, as part of the Novi Sad – European Capital of Culture 2022 project.
The exhibition titled “Migrations in Art – Art of Migrations” will be opened today, February 18, at 7 pm, at the Matica Srpska Gallery in Novi Sad. The aim of the exhibition is to create a space for social dialogue on migration through a selection of paintings that compare the concepts such as fear, (lack of) empathy, (lack of) understanding, contradictions and humanity.
“This exhibition shows diversity, hence it is suitable for a very diverse audience, both those who love new technologies and those who love classical painting and contemporary art. It is important that we experience this exhibition as a platform for dialogue, to reflect on the phenomenon of migration, our attitude towards migrants today and the extent to which migration and population movements have actually changed Europe,” said the head of Matica Srpska Gallery, Tijana Palkovljević Bugarski.
Under the auspices of the Novi Sad – European Capital of Culture 2022 project, more than 300 events and cultural activities will take place in February and March.
