IT DID OPEN! One year later, it’s still hard to believe.
Being finally able to go inside the building that I had never set foot in before and see so many things that were hidden in its basements.
It was founded in 1958 as the Museum of Modern Art and it was the first Contemporary Art museum in this part of Europe. It’s a beautiful, angular, glass-and-steel modernist building on the banks of the Sava River. The works by Picasso, Matisse, and Van Gogh and other local artists are just some that MOCAB has in its collection.
But one of the best pieces this museum has to offer is the building that it calls its home. You should take a walk by the Sava river, take a left turn and just observe it for a couple of moments.
The new exhibition is ‘The Cleaner’ by Marina Abramović, our most famous contemporary artist today. This is her first exhibition in her hometown in more than 45 years! From September 21st, 2019 to January 20th, 2020.
Tip: If you are a student the ticket would be only 150 dinars and each Wednesday its free entrance for everyone. Unfortunately, this is not the case for this special ‘Cleaner’ exhibition. The entrance for this one will be 600 RSD.
