Vladimir Becić, Exhibition in the Tactile Gallery, marking the 130th anniversary of the birth of the painter
Marking the 130th anniversary of the birth of Croatian painter Vladimir Becić (1886-1954), on Tuesday, September 6, at 12 noon, the artist’s painting from the holdings of the Modern Gallery, Boy with a Corn Cob, 1937, will be presented in the MG Tactile Gallery on the grand first floor of the Vranyczany Palace.
The MG Tactile Gallery is the first multi-sensory gallery meant for blind and partially sighted persons in this part of Europe. An important part of the permanent display of the Modern Gallery, it is located in a special section of the Gallery’s first floor and is arranged for viewing bz means of touch and hearing. In it, exhibitions of major works of Croatian painting and sculpture from the 19th century on are alternated. Audio guides, tactile diagrams and captions in Braille, exhibited along with the original works and brought together in the catalogues, constitute the compendium of aids with which the Modern Gallery and Natasa Jovičić, the author of this innovative methodology, are making Croatian modern art available to all. From the point of view of form and content, people who are blind or partially sighted are able to see a painting, to recognise a sculpture, in brief, to experience a work of art.
