exat 51

 

 

Croatian Avant-Garde Art Group, founded in 1951:
Architects:
Bernardo Bernardi (1912-85), Zdravko Bregovac (b 1924), Zvonimir Radic (1921-83), Bozidar Rasica (1912-92), Vjenceslav Richter (b 1917) and Vladimir Zarahovic
Painters:
Vlado Kristl (b 1922), Ivan Picelj and Aleksandra Srnec (b 1924)

Salon des Realités Nouvelles, Paris, 1952;
Collective exhibition in February 1953, Hall of the Architects' Society of Croatia, Zagreb.

Since the 1960's the members of Exat 51 initiated the manifestation called New Tendencies, that to certain extent had carried on the ideas of Exat, very prominent in the new context of 60's, turned toward kinetic and optical art. New Tendencies were very important for their gradual internationalization of local artistic context, and also for introducing new media to the generation of artists that will be intensively turned to new media in the 70's.

 

 

BOZIDAR RASICA.
(Ljubljana, 1912 - Zagreb, 1992)
Co-founder member of the Croatian avant-garde group EXAT 51.

Bozidar RASICA: Untitled, 1952.

Untitled. 1952.
Unique.
Gouache on paper.
Image: 62.5x48 cm.
Framed under a glass panel.
Signed in pencil bottom right.
Condition: Small tear on paper low centyer (ca 1 cm), otherwise perfect..
(Generally, Rasicar' gouaches are not in good condition. For example 3 that are included in permanent exhibition of the Contemporary Art Museum in Zagreb are much worse. He was never to keen on taking care after them (he was an architect who didn't consider himself an important artist). The story is that he washed many of his gouaches in a bath tub!!!)

Jesa Denegri, Zelimir Koscevic, EXAT 51 1951-1956, Gallery Nova (Nova Galeria), Zagreb, reproduced under #22, page 207.
