Galerija Miroslav Kraljevic (G-MK), 14.11.–09.12.2017

Mangelos, Mladen Stilinović, Sven Stilinović: Shakespeare among us

Nine artists from the Zagreb art scene present their works which reference the ideas of other artists, writers, philosophers, psychoanalysts, physicists, directors, musicians, film and video art theorists…The works have been created in the period from the 1960s to the present and they affirm the artists' erudition and imagination, counting on the engagement of viewers, who are expected to be familiar with the other authors since they provide the context for new messages of individuals works. 

With works by:

Mangelos, Tomislav Gotovac, Mladen Stilinović, Sanja Iveković, Dalibor Martinis, Sven Stilinović, Vlado Martek, Igor Grubić, Goran Trbuljak
