The exhibition was founded around 40 years ago by a group of artists of the «Art Colony Rovinj». Their aim was to found an outdoor atelier, where all the artist would have equal opportunities. Over the years, «Grisia» started to attract young avantgarde artists and performers, who enriched the exhibition with new perspectives.

Today the exhibition, which is staged from the Balbi Arch to the St. Euphemia Church, offers diversity of styles and encourages dialogue and exchanges of opinions.
