Through a variety of themes and narratives, the exhibitions convey a variety of messages from artworks and educate us about art, as well as their creators.
Novi Sad / Timisoara
Based on the belief that museums are a kind of fortresses of peace and bridges that connect and unite us, the Gallery of Matica Srpska and the National Art Museum in Timişoara created unusual exhibition, connecting their rich collections, and making parallels between artists, themes, ideas and artistic visions of former common cultural space.

Collection of Paintings of Jovanka Broz
The exhibition includes 36 paintings by local and foreign artists, personal belongings, photographs and several pieces of furniture from the house where Jovanka Broz lived after the passing of Josip Broz Tito. For over three decades, Jovanka Broz lived in a memory chamber which she kept on transferring from one environment to another, like a time capsule, trying to replicate as much as she possibly could the ambience of the Residence in Užička 15 where she lived with Tito. This collection appeared spontaneous as a backstage of her life, and in the same manner disappeared.

Exhibition rooms “Milivoj Nikolajević”, Gallery of Matica Srpska
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.
