Retained Sights – Andrić, the World of Images and Friends

December 10th - 24th, 2011

The third segment is the exhibition Retained Sights – Andrić, the World of Images and Friends. The works of art kept by Ivo Andrić in his home and presently held by the Memorial Museum dedicated to him, some of which were made either by those artists who left a lasting imprint on the development of 20th-century art in the former Yugoslavia. – like Stojan Aralica, Sreten Stojanović, Božidar Jakac, Ignjat Job, Milenko Šerban, Milo Milunović, Petar Lubarda, Liza Križanić, Kosta Hakman, Nikola Graovac, Nedeljko Gvozdenović, Zuko Džumhur, or Peđa Milosavljević, just to mention some of them – or by those less known who were nevertheless precious companions to the writer and whom he deeply respected, open a view towards his private world of companionship with artists who created the world of images. It was in this intimate circle of contemporaries that he gradually developed the sense and the idea of visual arts that can be traced back throughout his literary work either clearly expressed or masterly disguised, either fully shaped or in fragments.

The author of the exhibition is Nada Seferović, MA, curator of the Belgrade City Museum. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with and at the premises of the O3ONE Gallery between December 10th and 24 December 2011.
