It is futile for an artist to try to create an environment because you have an environment around you all the time. Any living organism has an environment. / Carl Andre

Curated by Zdenka Badovinac, Bojana Piškur, Igor Španjol

Repetition 6 presents a selection of works from Moderna galerija's Arteast 2000+ and national collections that brings the rhythm of space into focus; more specifically, installations in which the dimension of time is coupled with the experience of abstract space.

MG: 20th CENTURY / CONTINUITIES AND RUPTURES



The 20th Century / Continuities and Ruptures exhibition breaks with traditional linearity by introducing the topics of the 20th century avant-gardes and of the art of the Partisan resistance, bringing them into the national history of art on an equal footing with more familiar trends and, as a consequence, casting new light on the latter.
