The exhibition MIJENE – ON THE ROVINJ ART CIRCLE, FROM THE COLLECTION OF ROVINJ HERITAGE MUSEUM is a result of cooperation among museums with the joint goal of exploring, evaluating, illuminating, and presenting the uniquely significant chapter of art that has left a deep mark on the overall history of art of the Istrian peninsula, going beyond the regional, and even the national context. The exhibition shows for the first time how Rovinj became an ‘artistic colony’ of sorts after World War II, and presents 61 authors and their works from the collection of Rovinj Heritage Museum. This is the first phase of critical reflection of the significance of Rovinj in the artistic life of Istria, Croatia, and Yugoslavia in the second half of the 20th century, and provides the correct historical and art history context. The exhibition encompasses 150 objects, art pieces (various mediums, formats, thematic and stylistic designations), and abundant documentary material (catalogues, invitations, posters, photographs, et.) from 1946 to 2010. Along with many interesting exhibits, visitors can see the catalogue of the first, and at the same time the last exhibition by the Valdibora Group (Bruno Mascarelli, Zora Matić, Žarko Naunović, and Marčelo Brajnović), held in 1953 at the building of the County Court in Pula as part of the side programme of the First Pula Festival, as well as valuable archive material.
Other than the Rovinj Heritage Museum, material was also provided by:
Mascarelli family, Croatian Radiotelevision, Croatian State Archives / Cinematheques, Historical and Maritime Museum of Istria, Museum of the Poreč Territory, Kovačić-Mihočinec Collection, Museum of Contemporary Art of Istria
