African Art Boom

Modest Yet Impressive

Africa has undergone what the global art world has described as an “art boom” over the last few years. This has led to international interest in contemporary African art, shifting the focus away from naive art and collected ancient artefacts, and has generated enough interest to see the emergence of institutions like Cape Town’s Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa

Istorijski spomenici u Francuskoj:

Znamenitosti – obeležja francuske istorije

Sa preko 40.000 zvanično registrovanih znamenitosti, Francuska ima jednu od najgušćih koncentracija istorijskih objekata i ostalih spomenika u Evropi. Od grandioznih palata i katedrala do najmanjih srednjovekovnih kapela, rimskih ostataka ili zaostavština iz vremena Industrijske revolucije – Francuska ima sve. I to samo ako računamo zvanično popisane istorijske znamenitosti

85. godišnjica Francuske ambasade u Beogradu ukras grada

Dok je grupa domaćih turista čekala da uđe u zgradu Francuske ambasade, u Pariskoj ulici u Beogradu duvao je vetar, ali nije bilo toliko hladno kao na koktelu priređenom na tom istom mestu decembra 1935. godine, prilikom svečanog otvaranja ove velelepne zgrade, sazidane dve godine ranije – 1933. Gradske dame tog vremena klizale su se u svojim cipelicama po venčačkom mermeru pridržavajući se za svoje pratioce u prijemnom holu kraj kapije, dok je napolju kiša lila, a pod se ledio stvarajući opasne probleme za gošće u obući sa potpeticama

Precious Archaeological and Artistic Heritage

“We have defined the basics of the permanent exhibition, which means that it is not set in stone but flexible, and now we need to attract the audience. How? With various approaches that will make the Museum vibrant and attractive”

Norway - Contemporary art:

High Ambition Connected with Quality

Norway’s art scene boomed in the 19th century with the introduction of landscape artists such as Johan Christian Dahl and Johannes Flintoe. Since then, it has seen an increase in local Impressionist, Realist, and Modernist artists, after a long history of importing rather than creating artworks. Today, Norway is proud to have bred many internationally recognised artists, from printmakers to sculptors to jewellers
