Day three of the Tu smo 3 (We’re Here 3) event was given over to the presentation of Zagreb’s Greta Gallery at the premises of the Pula branch office of the CHF. Exhibiting their work there were Marko Ercegović (Dubrovnik/Zagreb), Sandro Đukić, Sven Klobučar, Maja Marković, Natalija Škalić and Marko Tadić of Zagreb, Marijana Miloš of Rijeka and Slaven Tolj of Dubrovnik.
After Tu smo 1 (We’re Here 1) and Tu smo 2 (We’re Here 2), two very well received multimedia events staged by the Contemporary Art Museum of Istra, this year’s Tu smo 3 (We’re Here 3) featured an even richer and more diverse programme. The event was conceived and created by art historian Mladen Lučić who works as an advisor to the Contemporary Art Museum of Istra alongside director Gorka Ostojić Cvajner.
While previous years have already seen the participation of artists from abroad, including some of our emigrants, this year the event also worked with the CHF branch office in Pula. Joining the many galleries, squares and streets of Pula in hosting the event this year was the gallery of the CHF premises in Pula. Through its media capacity the CHF wishes to disseminate information among our artists in the emigrant communities, whom we invite to prepare for and participate in the 2014 Tu smo 4 event.
Tu smo 3 is an international multimedia event organised by the Contemporary Art Museum of Istra staged from 11 to 23 September of 2012 on the streets, squares, commercial and gallery spaces in Pula. The first two such events featured over three hundred artists from Croatia and abroad. The events have been very successful in all segments and have animated the art, culture and public life of the city, raised awareness of its historical heritage and underscored the need for the construction of a permanent home for the Contemporary Art Museum of Istra in Pula.
This year the event will host some 150 artists from Croatia and abroad who will create their contemporary works in all media of visual and performance arts and illustrate the publishing activity of the Contemporary Art Museum of Istra, and focus on the cultural and monument heritage of Pula.
Day three of the Tu smo 3 event was given over to the presentation of Zagreb’s Greta Gallery, enjoying increasing affirmation in its first year. The activity of this gallery was presented at the premises of the Pula branch office of the Croatian Heritage Foundation in Carrarina Street. Exhibiting their work there were Marko Ercegović (Dubrovnik/Zagreb), Sandro Đukić, Sven Klobučar, Maja Marković, Natalija Škalić and Marko Tadić of Zagreb, Marijana Miloš of Rijeka and Slaven Tolj of Dubrovnik.
Marko Ercegović, for example, featured his work Kretanje, gledanje (Movement, Observation), and exhibited photographs of performances he has staged between the town of Starigrad and the village of Štaglinac. The exhibition runs through to the 23rd of September.
