EXHIBITION
THE FIRST FIVE PIECES OF THE FIRST CIVIC MUSEUM COLLECTION IN CROATIA
organizer: Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka
exhibition conceived by: members of the first session of the Civic Museum Council
exhibition opening: 4 September 2020
the exhibition will remain open until 5 October 2020
The time and manner of the exhibition’s opening will be announced in due time and will comply with the epidemiological measures effective on the opening date.

With the exhibition “The First Five Pieces of the First Civic Museum Collection in Croatia,” the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka is presenting the acquisitions of the newly-formed Civic Museum Collection that became a part of the Museum’s inventory based on suggestions and selections made by citizens.
By establishing the Civic Museum Council (CMC) in January 2019, the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka became the first in Croatia to implement the practice of participatory museum management. Establishment of the CMC marked the beginning of democratization and spurred the process of adaptation to community needs, so that even the collection of materials began to be approached differently. By posing the question “How do you want our future generations to remember us?” the Museum decided to share responsibility for selecting the heritage worth protecting in museums with the public.
The items which citizens were called upon to propose comply with UNESCO and ICOM recommendations on the need for protection of the tangible and intangible heritage in museums. We asked our fellow citizens to document some segment of the intangible heritage – either by photograph or video/audio recording – in their own environments: a custom, skill, song, dance, ritual, phenomenon, belief, knowledge or memory. Citizens thus became actively involved in the transformation of omnipresent spiritual creativity into new museum pieces preserved for the future.
By means of digital platforms, citizens have proposed a total of 11 items to the Museum that have been endorsed by a total of 166 votes. The five nominations with the most votes were selected.
The Museum will repeat this Public Invitation every year, and continue to create the new Civic Museum Collection in Croatia together with the public.
This programme is being implemented within the framework of the European Social Fund project “Museum of the Future – the Civic Museum Council as the Model for Participatory Management” (UP.04.2.1.04.0182) in cooperation with five partners: the Žmergo Association, the Kombinat Creative Collective, the Centre for Talented Children, the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County Association of the Blind and the City of Rijeka Retiree Association.

WORKSHOPS
As part of the project “Museum of the Future – the Civic Museum Council as the Model for Participatory Management”, educational workshops on the work of institutions in the field of culture with various groups of potential users will be held in the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka during September and October.
The workshop on “Specific Aspects of Work with Sensitive Groups in Cultural Institutions” will be led by Emil Mandarić from the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County Association of the Blind, the workshop on “Talent – How to Recognize, Support and Nurture It” will be led by Jasna Borbelj from the Rijeka Centre for Talented Children, while the workshop on “Work with Youth and Volunteers in Cultural Institutions” will be led by psychologist Goran Mišćenić from the Žmergo Association.
The workshops are being co-financed by the European Union through the European Social Fund.
The time and manner for holding the workshops will be announced in due time and will comply with the epidemiological measures effective on the opening date.

EXHIBITION
VIOLINS BEYOND BORDERS/STRADIVARI IN RIJEKA – KRESNIK AND CREMONA
organizer: Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka
co-organizers: Consulate General of the Republic of Italy in Croatia (Rijeka), Glazbeni Festival Kvarner d.o.o. (Opatija)
partner: Museo del Violino (Cremona, Italy)
exhibition conceived by: Tamara Mataija, Fausto Cacciatori, Tea Perinčić
the exhibition will remain open until February 2021

Part of the preliminary programme for the exhibition “Borders – Between Order and Chaos” includes the observance of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Dr Franjo Kresnik (1869-1943), one of the greatest Cremonese lutherie experts of his time. Kresnik dedicated over 40 years to the study of bowed string instruments, particularly those made in the workshops of Antonio Stradivari and Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù. In his honour, instruments made by these two great luthiers were exhibited in the Museum from the opening date until 8 March 2020, after which they were returned to Cremona. The exhibition remains open to visitors and is conceptually identical, while the display has been enriched with materials from the inventory of the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka.

A film was shot to accompany the exhibition “Violins Beyond Borders/Stradivari in Rijeka – Kresnik and Cremona,” a joint presentation of the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka and the Museo del Violino. Antonio Stradivari, Guiseppe Guarneri del Gesù and Franjo Kresnik have left behind instruments which are admired to this day, while generations have enjoyed the music that they make. This is why we are calling on everyone to enjoy the music and this film that recalls our great fellow citizen.

EXHIBITION
D’ANNUNZIO’S MARTYR – L’OLOCAUSTA DI D’ANNUNZIO
organizer: Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka
exhibition conceived by: Tea Perinčić and Ana-Maria Milčić
exhibition designed by: Sanjin Kunić and Nikolina Radić Štivić
the exhibition will remain open until 31 January 2021

The exhibition is part of the European Capital of Culture 2020 programme The Age of Power, and it opened on 12 September 2019 to mark the one-hundredth anniversary of D’Annunzio’s occupation of Rijeka. The exhibition was set up as part of the permanent display on the first floor of the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka. The exhibition’s creators decided to portray the sixteen months of the dictatorship established in Rijeka by Gabriele D’Annunzio, the Italian poet, soldier and nationalist, through the prism of women – in both the figurative and literal senses, through a cross-section of specific historical events and testimony and by presenting several works by Italian futurists which reflect the spirit of this era.
To accompany the exhibition in the Museum, we have also provided our visitors with the possibility of virtual guidance through it.

The performance “Today is Tomorrow’s Yesterday” is part of the Lipa Remembers Memorial Centre’s Recognizing Absence programme.
This is a site-specific modern dance performance created in Lipa’s public space by means of a unique operating method called Viewpoints. The composition of the performance’s elements was created by conceiving of space, time, narrative, emotions, movements and forms within the limits of Lipa’s location and history. Lipa’s tangible and intangible heritage thus becomes a stimulating framework for artistic exploration, analysis and creation of a dance routine. Documentation of the entire creative process with a video recording of the performance will be a component of the exhibition set up in the Lipa Remembers Memorial Centre on the date of the premiere, and it will continue until 15 November 2020.
The artistic programme Recognizing Absence is dedicated to remembering the 269 slain residents of Lipa and the permanent accent on the destructive consequences of war and the failure to observe fundamental human rights. For the fourth consecutive year, the programme has presented artists from different disciplines who always approach Lipa’s dark past differently, creating new value and meaning.
The Kabinet Arts Organization was established in Rijeka in 2008 and is active in the performing arts (with emphasis on dance), exploring the potential of interdisciplinary collaboration with the visual arts and new media. The organization’s art director is Ivana Kalc, while its performers are Tina Perić, Tereza Korošec, Sanda Hunjak, Kristina Žuvela, Tajči Čekada, Nika Krajnović, Željka Rupčić, Morena Scotti Andrić, Tihana Naglić and Darija Morosi.
