Museum Lapidarium will present experimental and animated films, sculptures, photographs and original skethches, while visitors of the Rigo Gallery will have the opportunity to see graphics and collages.

Aleksandar Srnec was born in 1924 in Zagreb. He studied at the Academy of Visual Arts in Zagreb. He is one of the founders and a member of the group EXAT-51. Srnec also signed the 1951 Manifesto. He is a master of abstract art, in which the visual language is subjugated to geometrical forms. In 1953 Srnec constucted his first kinetic objects (Prostorni modulator). He started experimenting with sculptures in motion and reliefs around 1956 and in 1962 Srnec introduced light as an important element of his lumino-kinetic constructions. The exhibition will stay on view until August 9 at Museum Lapidarium and until August 15 at the Rigo Gallery.
