Second City - works by contemporary Split and Dubrovnik artists
07.11 - 06.12.
Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik

With a title translating into English as “Second City”, in this exhibition the artists of two of Croatia’s great coastal cities explore shared themes, in particular the issue of living in cities transformed by the rapid development of tourism into destinations, “single-use cities”, cheap souvenir shops and sets of multi-million dollar global productions such as Game of Thrones. The artists speak out about the threats to public space, the “apartmentisation” and concreting of space, the race for cash, inverted values and new phenomena such as the retreat of humanity into the last oases of calm, away from the stampede of tourists.

Lovro Artuković - Slowdown
10.12 – 28.2.2021
Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik

Artuković's primary medium of work is figurative painting. In creating his works, he uses the traditional technique of oil on large format canvases. This exhibition, in addition to large-format paintings, presents some new elements related to the artist's artistic research. The latter has resulted in a wealth of detail in his recent work. The exhibition that we will be able to see first in Zagreb, and then in Dubrovnik, presents 43 works created in the period from 2015 to 2020.

Katarina Kusijanović Alamat - Mensura
Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik

Katarina Alamat Kusijanović presents works from 2020 and 2016, in chalk on wood and acrylic on plexiglass, as well as spatial and audio installations. She explores the inscription above the entrance to Dubrovnik’s Sponza Palace: Fallere nostra vetant et falli pondera meqve Pondero cvm merces, ponderat ipse Devs, “Our weights do not permit cheating or being cheated. When I measure the commodities the Lord measures with me”. Taking Dubrovnik and its cultural heritage as a starting point, she explores, forensically and dispassionately, the current state of the human condition, social values and poses questions about eternal truths and freedoms.
