This year’s Museum Night will take place under the motto “Victors and Victories”
on Saturday, May 19th, from 5 pm till 1 am.
This year the whole world celebrates the end of the World War I. As in any conflict, one ultimately outcome as a victor and the other as a defeated. We belong to those who came out from the Great War as victors, although with the most casualties per capita, but that will not be (the only) victory that 15th Museum Night will celebrate.
This year's event aims to mark some personal, intimate and human triumphs over selfs in life, art, culture and science; in everything that makes the world around us more gratified, significant and valuable. The 15th Museum Night will be inspired by our precious heritage, not meaning the respect for tradition, but also for the innovation.
The Program council of the Museum Night consists of: architect and an academician Branislav Mitrović, director Nebojša Bradić and sculptor prof. Mrđan Bajić.
Following Museum Night will enable self-reflection of small and great victories in life, emphasizing progressive ideas, giving a chance to inspiring people and fascinating events that marks our history. Once again, we hope to demonstrate that culture can prevail, bringing cultural institutions and general public closer together and introducing attractive and popular, yet high-quality and expert-curated programs.
This time we will traditionally discover new spaces and tell unspoken stories, and for one night, the entire city will become a museum.
