Pathways in the universe | Exhibitions in Novi Sad

In 2022, Novi Sad will be one of the holders of the European Capital of Culture title, and although the end of the year is quickly approaching, there are still plenty of activities going on, so it is well worth a visit to Serbia’s second-largest city. This time, we recommend three exhibitions not to be missed along with ćevapčići-eating and strolls on the Danube bank.

Time and Universe

It’s rare to find an exhibition that is philosophical, socially critical, and thought-provoking, as well as spectacular, engaging, and beautiful. Time and Universe invites us on a journey from darkness to light, from chaos to cosmos, where we learn about different cultures’ relationship to time, the perfection of bees, and the meaning of our heartbeat while being enchanted by the projections and meditative music that covers entire walls. The exhibition is framed by the theories of the famous Serbian scientist Milutin Milanković, who, among other things, explains how changes in the Earth’s movement affect the climate.

Curators: Dušan Jovović PhD and Aleksandar Petrović PhD

For how long? Until 31 January 2023

Milky Way

“How important is resistance to existing systems in art, society, and technology for the development of critical artistic practice, and how much is it present as a reflection of dissatisfaction with imposed, default, and established dogmas, prejudices, and taboos?” is the question posed by the multimedia exhibition Milky Way, featuring some of the biggest names in the regional and international art scene such as Katalin Ladik, Vuk Ćosić, Bill Viola, and Hermann Nitsch. The exhibition presents different media, artistic practices, theories, and attitudes through neo-avantgarde and contemporary works in an attempt to answer the questions raised.

Curator: Sanja Kojić Mladenov PhD

Uroš Predić. A Life Dedicated to Beauty and Art

Uroš Predić (1857-1953) was one of the outstanding figures of Serbian painting, who, following the principles of academic art, continued to create for more than eight decades, leaving behind a rich oeuvre. Besides his popular genre paintings, he became known for his religious scenes and portraits, and his artistic ideals and style were unshaken by the profound socio-artistic upheaval of the twentieth century. The exhibition brings together over a hundred works of art from Serbian and foreign collections, providing an insight into the life and art of Uroš Predić. The paintings also feature Hungarian words such as Szeszfőzde (distillery) and ügyvéd (lawyer).
