‘Gorgona’ at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, Vaduz

Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, Vaduz presents “Gorgona” a group exhibition that runs through September 3, 2017.  In 1959, a number of painters, sculptors, architects, art critics and art theorists came together in the capital of Croatia Zagreb to form the Gorgona Group. The shared aim of Miljenko Horvat, Marijan Jevšovar, Julije Knifer, Ivan Kožarić, Mangelos, Matko Meštrović, Radoslav Putar, Đuro Seder and Josip Vaništa was to establish a new aesthetic practice that differed from practices in socialist Yugoslavia, at the same time engaging in a dialogue with international avant-gardes. There were collaborations with a number of avant-gardists of the early 1960s including Piero Manzoni, François Morellet and Dieter Roth.  The group disbanded in 1966, but the members remained united by a common world view. They shared a faith in the absolute autonomy of art, and each artist continued to develop his own work in this spirit. This exhibition presents the joint activities of the members of “Gorgona” with the aid of writings, photographs and other documents. It also traces in detail the development of the individual artistic strategies before, during and after the group’s activities.The exhibition is on view at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, Now with Hilti Art Foundation, Städtle 32, Postfach 370, 9490 Vaduz, Liechtenstein. For details, visit: www.kunstmuseum.liClick on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the exhibition.
