Directions and trends of Serbian ceramics from 1937 to present

The Museum of Applied Arts warmly invites you to the grand opening of the exhibition "In Dialogue", artistic ceramics from the collections of the Museum of Applied Arts and the National Museum in Arandjelovac, which is an authorial project of senior curators Jelena Popovic and Tanja Vicentic.

At the grand opening on Thursday, May 30th, at 6 p.m., the following will address the audience:

Biljana Jotic, director of MAA,

Darko Pavlovic, acting director of the National Museum in Arandjelovac

Dr. Simona Cupic, full professor at the Faculty of Philosophy

Representative from the Ministry of Culture, who will officially open the exhibition

The main idea is to present the main directions and trends in the field of artistic ceramics, so the most representative representatives of certain areas have been selected: Elements of tradition in the service of new ideas, Nature through form and material, Transformation from object to abstract, and New meanings.

The goal of the exhibition is to show through different discourses the transformation of artistic ceramics in Serbia during the 20th and early 21st centuries, and the developmental path during which ceramics evolved from a utilitarian object to a part of the expanded field of visual arts.

Different aspects of affirmation and development of ceramics in this area were conditioned by the activity of the museum practice of the Museum of Applied Arts, as well as the activity of the World of Ceramics, a symposium of ceramists held within the Yugoslav Art Review Marble and Sounds from Arandjelovac from 1974 to today.

The exhibition will feature works that are rarely exhibited such as Ivan Tabakovic's panel "Croatian Spring" from 1937, and works of foreign artists who participated in the "World of Ceramics" symposium and left an indelible mark on Serbian artists.

The exhibition is accompanied by a bilingual catalog published by the Museum of Applied Arts with texts by senior curators Jelena Popovic from the Museum of Applied Arts, Tanja Vicentic from the National Museum in Arandjelovac, and museum advisor Bojana Popovic.

Throughout the exhibition, the audience will have the opportunity to get acquainted with the precious cultural heritage of the two museums and explore the possibilities and creative potential of ceramics through a supporting program consisting of expert tours, lectures, and workshops.

You can visit the exhibition until June 25, 2024.
