IMG075KUD Koralj (Culture and Art Association) and the Zlarin Tourist Board bring you another interesting event – our dear friend and great artist Vedran Perkov’s exhibition. Before the opening, the author will hold a public lecture where he will display a selection of works made during his 15-year career. Visitors will have a chance to learn about the making of his work and the ideas that preceded their existence.

The speech with the artist program is called “Ki si, čigov si I ča činiš?” For years Boris Gregov has tried to talk me into making an exhibition in the Zlarin museum. For years I was able to think of some kind of excuse, justification and reason not to do it. Not because I’m lazy or because it’s summer – leave me alone. None of those things were my reason.

This year I could not find any more excuses, and I still really don’t need and exhibition in Zlarin. I’ll try to show everybody why I think so with this exhibition called Iventura.
