Zagreb

A contemporaneous adventure into art

share
Other sights around the city include the Contemporary Art Museum (Muzej suvremene umjetnosti). What makes this museum remarkable is that rather than presenting a 'seen-it-all-before' narrative of what contemporary art is supposed to be, the collection lets the Croatian avant-garde speak for itself. The country experienced an explosion of vibrant abstract painting in the 1950s, while from the 1960s onwards local artists increasingly abandoned painting in favour of conceptual gestures. Further west, just a few minutes’ walk from Sveti Duh tram stop, is Lauba. Once an industrial complex but now a public space, ‘Lauba – The House for People and Art’, has a collection of 500 works of art created over the last 60 years, beginning with the renowned Exat 51 and New Tendencies movements. The greatest names in recent Croatian art are here.
