NATIONAL MUSEUM IN BELGRADE, 11 SEPTEMBER - 31 OCTOBER 2014
MUSEUM OF VOJVODINA IN NOVI SAD, 7-30 NOVEMBER 2014
Almost 60 years after the first Belgrade exhibition of the British sculptor that left a significant mark on the Serbian art scene, the audience in Serbia had the opportunity to get to know his work through sculptures and prints in two major museums in Belgrade and Novi Sad.
'Henry Moore: The Printmaker' consisted of 80 prints, five maquettes and one working model that were created between 1949 and 1983. The exhibition was visited by over 20,000 visitors that also had the opportunity to familiarise themselves with Moore’s work through a set of photos depicting the artist himself, his creative process and some of his works that marked modern art. All of the works that were exhibited in Belgrade and Novi Sad belong to our rich collection of British art ‘Museum without Walls’. In 1984, as a present for our 50th birthday, Moore donated to this collection more than 200 art pieces of great artistic value, which was another proof of a great friendship between Henry Moore and our organisation.
The National Museum and the Museum of Vojvodina organised a rich side programme for over 800 participants in order to to bring closer to the the work of one of the greatest UK artists to through a series of lectures, workshops and other activities.
Through our website, Facebook page and Twitter we were able to reach over a million people and help them get more acquainted with the life and work of one of the greatest sculptors of his time.
This exhibition was organised by a number of partners, including the British Council, National Museum in Belgrade, Museum of Vojvodina and Banca Intesa, with the support from the Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia, the Provincial Secretariat of Culture and Public Information and the British Embassy in Belgrade.
