The Croatian Contemporary Medal
The Croatian contemporary art of the medal is consonant with global currents in the visual art scene. It has absorbed the most recent artistic trends and enables artists to express their own experience of the world and their views on contemporary and universal human themes, via the most diverse formal resources and materials.
Almost three decades since the exhibition of contemporary medallists in Zagreb , the Modern Gallery is happy to be able to present recent productions by Croatian medal makers.
Taking part in the exhibition are 26 Croatian medallists, showing all told 67 works created since 1990. They are: Ivan Antolčić, Paula Banić, Kruno Bošnjak, Zdravko Brkić, Ana Divković, Stjepan Divković, Rebecca Glavan Glušac, Karlo Gross, Marko Horvat, Kuzma Kovačić, Đurđica Kovačiček, Maja Krstić-Lukač, Margareta Landau Nejašmić, Damir Mataušić, Jelena Mavrić, Matko Mijić, Medarda Pack, Matej Pašalić, Luka Petrinjak, Anja Planinčić, Irena Podvorac, Judita Poljak, Stipe Sikirica, Maja Šimunović, Martina Vrbljanin and Željko Zima.
The exhibition will provide an overview of the diverse and dynamic world of variously conceived and rendered works of contemporary Croatian medal-making of a superior level of artistic excellence.
