Ratko Petrić: Throw in the face!, 30.3. - 23.5.
Museum of Contemporary Art, Avenija Dubrovnik 17
The retrospective exhibition presents a cross-section of Ratko Petrić's entire oeuvre, many of which are on display for the first time. About 300 works by the author - sculptures, models, posters and printed matter, works on paper and archives and multimedia content can be viewed at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb. The central theme of his artistic opus is man and his destiny. Extensively using irony, sarcasm and grotesque, he questioned the socio-political, cultural and artistic phenomena of his time in a very fresh and lucid way. The majority of his oeuvre consists of sculptures, and he has also created 49 sculptures and 10 monuments in public space (mostly in Croatia, Austria, Germany and Slovenia).
