Almost the entire painting of Sava Šumanović (1896–1942) belongs to the period between the two world wars. Building a more comprehensive picture of Šumanović’s realisms and their relations with international art tendencies was the starting point in the approach to this exhibition held in The Pavle Beljanski Memorial Collection, The Gallery of Matica Srpska and the Art Gallery “Sava Šumanović” in Šid.

Starting from the fact that the city is shaped by citizens, their origins, heritage, habits and orientations, and that the museum is a place of collective memory that collects and preserves different life stories of individuals, we decided to open our collection and offer it to fellow citizens through works of art – in our space they tell the story of themselves and their city. We wanted to intertwine personal and general, individual and city, work of art and the possible message it conveys at the present time, and as a result of that friendship, the exhibition Novi Sad Citizens Choose was conceived.
