Frequent comments on the invisibility and aloofness of the museum zone inspired us to design a project that would signal the presence of the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in its neighbourhood, and also challenge the visibility of contemporary art in public space.

Mali Salon, 10 – 25 May 2013: Moment of Silence, Toni Meštrović and Nadija Mustapić

Moment of Silence is a co-authored project by two video artists from Rijeka and Split – Nadija Mustapić and Toni Meštrović. It was made in the period from 2012 to 2013 at 3. maj shipyard in Rijeka and Brodosplit shipyard in Split, in cooperation with shipyard workers. The audio and video material from Split and Rijeka shipyard locations have been edited into a multi-channel installation, which will be presented for the first time at the Mali salon Gallery in Rijeka. The leading thread of this project is suggested by its very title. It implicates the fragility of identity, existential and economic uncertainty and post-transitional anxiety, and reflects the situation that equally permeates local and global contexts.

Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, 7 – 25 May 2013: Interspaces, Aleksandar Garbin and Goran Petercol

Aside from streets, our signpost points towards the museum refuge; we climb to the large hall where a joint display by Aleksandar Garbin and Goran Petercol will try to answer the question raised inevitably when discussing the topic of space: what is interspace and where do we find it? Around thirty works will serve as a reminder where it is that we find interspaces – in our own home, at the exhibition, on a bus – between the kitchen and the room, between two exhibits, between passengers. The authors believe interspace is ambiguous, once a point of connection, another time a borderline.
