Organized by Gallery Prica, POU Samobor, a relevant international group exhibition – the 5th International Self-Portrait Triennial “Me – Between Reality and Imagination” was opened in Samobor. 385 artists responded to the call with 676 submitted works, of which 87 were selected, including the works of eight Slavonian artists. The exhibition is open until May 16, 2021.
The exhibition of the 5th International Triennale of Self-Portraits “I – Between Reality and Imagination” follows a set path that is recognized in the art world by its traditional holding every three years. So far, four editions and juried exhibitions have been realized in 2008/09, 2011/12, 2014 and 2017.
The idea of the exhibition was set during the realization of the first trienniale, when the author of the exhibition was the art historian Guido Quien, who in a way “laid the foundations” and a solid starting point for this project, and with the same goal, art critics Višnja Slavica Gabout, Branka Hlevnjak and Sonja Švec Španjol continued to develop, during which everyone elaborated with arguments the facts that justify the holding of the triennial and its further continuity.
This fifth edition of the trienniale has an international character, therefore 385 artists responded to the invitation with 676 submitted works, of which the expert jury composed of Nikola Albaneže and Nikolina Šimunović selected 87 works for presentation at this triennial event. Artists from all parts of Croatia as well as Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Italy, Germany, Canada and the USA exhibit.
