The World Biennial of Student Posters opened on 7th July in the Kockica of the City Museum. This is an event that has been held since 2003, organised by the Academy of Arts of the University of Novi Sad, and this time it has arrived in a slightly different version. After last year’s break, due to Covid reasons, the great collaboration between the City Museum of Rijeka and the Academy of Arts has continued with a “summarised exhibition.”
Instead of presenting the latest student works, created over the last two years, the Biennial focused on a look backwards. Entitled Best of the best 2003 – 2020, it is an exhibition of the most successful posters displayed during the almost 20 years since the founding of the Biennial. It can now be viewed at the City Museum of Rijeka, in the Kockica, where the Biennial is regularly hosted, doing it in alternation with the World Biennial of Student Photography. The exhibition works traditionally arrive in Novi Sad from all continents, with the signatures of hundreds of participants, after which the jury selects the best works for the exhibition. This time, 50 works are presented, which are characterised by a youthful wit, artistic inventiveness and creative maturity.
The exhibition was opened by the Dean of the Academy of Arts Siniša Bokan, and also present at the opening were the organiser of the Rijeka show of the Biennial Ivan Karlavaris and a professor at the Academy of Arts Dubravka Lazić. The exhibition runs from 7th July until 17th July.
