Organization: Lapidarium Museum



On the 28th of July at 9 p.m. the Lapidarium Museum in Novigrad will host the opening of the excellent thematic exhibition titled «Eros Kalos».

The exhibition represents the consideration of eroticism through graphics and photographs.

The selection includes numerous renowned and unavoidable figures of the modernist period and the contemporary art and photographic production, starting with the Austrian secessionist Egon Schiele, continuing with Pablo Picasso and his graphics, André Masson, Leonor Fini, Shu Takahashi, Miroslav Šutej, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselman and the young authors, such as Sevda Chkoutova and Frédéric Légilse, who will be represented by original drawings.

Beside the aforementioned, the exhibition will also represent the phographs of the avantgarde experimenter Man Ray, the controversial Japanese master Nobuyoshi Araki, the great Helmut Newton, Ralph Gibson, Jeanloup Sieff and the photographs by the legendary American author Nan Goldin and Sam Taylor Wood, one of the protagonists of the contemporary British art scene.

The exhibition is on view until the 26th of July, during work days from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m. and from 6 p.m. till 11 p.m.

Closed on Sundays and holidays.
