The Museum has joined the campaign launched by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports and the Croatian Tourism Board, and obtained the “Safe Stay in Croatia” designation, which highlights it as a museum in which all health and safety protocols are enforced during the COVID-19 pandemic, making it a safe and desirable destination.

EXHIBITION
DON’T GET SNAGGED BY O’REEF
organizer: Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka
exhibition conceived by: Jelenko Ujdur/Koraljko Greben
opening: premises of the former Python Club (eastern wing of the Governor’s Palace) on 8 September 2021 at 7 p.m.
The opening and the number of persons attending will comply with epidemiological measures.
the exhibition will remain open until 8 October 2021

The premises of the former Python Club in the Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka will host Jelenko Ujdur, known under the artistic name Koraljko Greben (‘Coral O’Reef’), a young artist from Metković who will present his recent artistic creations in various media – sculpture, relief carvings, photographs and street art – to the public in Rijeka.
Nikša Margeta wrote the following about Jelenko Ujdur, alias Koraljko Greben:
Koraljko Greben modulates the overlap between the delightful and the discarded, which he reformulates in his own unique idiom, because he has a powerful urge to recycle reality. He processes change enriched by criticism of what is decreed. He shapes by means of message, point, topical content… Such bearings also warrant expression in street style. It is as though the artistic forms conveyed by sculpture and picture no longer sustain, so the ensuing spiritual disquiet leads to an explicitly external mode of communication, penetrating toward the urban embellishment of the architectural in a visual mega street-art trend unique to him. When he refreshes a sunken façade, when he nurtures and revives it; applies colour to this wailing wall – a wall that may soon no longer exist. When he struggles with the hydra of the social system and bureaucracy. When, shamed by a lack of environmental awareness, consumerism, globalist chic and general indifference to nature, he has to hide beneath the recycling of human nature and stupidity. (…) Sometimes, I recognize in his works the tenets of the Biafra art group that, operating in Zagreb in the 1970s, attempted to make the question of contemporary humanism topical in the cultural and social sense; so even with Greben we can find expressive and engaged figuration, abstraction and naturalist methods. (…) Koraljko Greben’s creative paradigm is the criticism of implication, censure, and awareness-raising… By the same token, his creative aspirations question and prod the system’s indifference and inefficacy, for it is sometimes impotent and inert in the face of art as narration, message or modification.

 

EXHIBITION
I’LL TELL YOU A STORY
organizer: Archaeological Museum in Zadar
conceived by: Timka Alihodžić, senior curator
the exhibition remains open until 13 September 2021

The theme of this guest exhibition from the Archaeological Museum in Zadar is burial customs in the Zadar area in Antiquity. Based on the results of an anthropological analysis of grave goods, the exhibition’s author attempted to reconstruct the lives of the people whose graves are presented. Each grave tells its own story, and by observing each of its components, from burial rites to the deposited goods, and then using a little imagination, one can evoke memories of the deceased individual if only for a moment. Believing that the deceased went on to the afterlife, the bereaved prepared various gifts for them, from basics such as money to pay for the journey and lamps to light the way, to more luxurious items such as expensive jewellery. Their beauty is sufficient unto itself, but as part of a funerary set it helps revive memories of the deceased individual whose soul drifts in the shadowy beyond.
The exhibition has been adapted to the blind and seeing impaired.
