Barbara Vujanovic (ITP 2016) Visit: Rodin and the Art of Ancient Greece
Today is the public opening of the British Museum’s new five-star exhibition, Rodin and the Art of Ancient Greece. The exhibition has been curated by Department of Greece and Rome curators Celeste Farge and Ian Jenkins, both of whom have hosted many ITP fellows.
Check out some of the exhibition’s rave reviews below:
‘Astonishing, ravishing, sublime’ – The Guardian
‘An inspiring meeting of masters’ – The Times
‘One of the shows of the year’ – The Telegraph
ITP Fellow Barbara Vujanovic (ITP 2016, Croatia) was a guest at the private viewing for the exhibition earlier this week and we caught up with her today.
Barbara – who is Senior Curator at the Ivan Meštrović Museums – the Meštrović Atelier, Zagreb – was invited to be part of the Spotlight Loan project Rodin: rethinking the fragment, which is linked to this major exhibition at the British Museum, and will be presented at Abbot Hall Art Gallery in Kendall, The Holburne Museum in Bath and The New Art Gallery in Walsall from 2018-19. Read more about Barbara’s experience of developing the Spotlight Loan tour here.
We are also delighted that Barbara will be back at the British Museum in July to present a lecture on Rodin in the British Museum’s BP Lecture Theatre! Her talk, Rethinking The Thinker will take place on 12 July, 13:30 – 14:30. To book to attend this free event, visit the BM event page here.
