Tapestry, as an autonomous, visual media, which emerged from the convergence of the French and Flemish tradition and local heritage of the ćilimar technique of weaving on a loom, achieved a great progress from naive, pioneer experiments, to authentic and original achievements that follow contemporary world artistic processes.

Works by numerous famous artists, whose activities and work are the best representative of the notion of contemporary art in Serbia, can be found in the Collection of ‘Atelje 61’, which consists of more than 300 exhibits.

In this regard, the ‘Atelje 61’ Institution for Tapestry Making wishes to mark its jubilee with the exhibition of one part of the tapestries by the artist Ilija Bašičević Bosilj from the A61 Collection.

‘The Bosilj Fiction of Atelje 61’ exhibition of tapestries will be open from 11 March until 16 April, every day from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

During the exhibition, depending on the epidemiological measures, three 1-hour guided tours through the exhibition will be organised: with the curators Ivana Bašičević Antić, and Jelena Đorđević.
