Mladen Galić, A Retrospective Exhibition
On Thursday, September 13, a retrospective exhibition of Mladen Galić, painter, graphic artist and graphic designer was opened in the Modern Gallery.
One the first floor of the Vranyczany Palace, an exhibition created by art historian and critic Ješa Denegri and Mladen Galić showed to the public a hundred or so works (paintings in oil and acrylics, collages, drawings and objects) created since the 1960s, in which colour and form can be identified as the basic features of the artist’s work, and visual condensation and a high degree of aesthetics as their basic postulates.
Along with an essential and stimulating insight into the rich and complex oeuvre of this artist, the exhibition tells of Galić’s continued contribution to the development of contemporary Croatian art, and also epitomises the directions it has taken.
Mladen Galić won the Vladimir Nazor Prize in 2005, and a prize of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts in 2006 for his lifetime achievement in art.
The exhibition can be viewed in the Modern Gallery until October 14, 2018.
