In the first edition (2015), the exhibition was dedicated to canine heritage, in the second edition (2017) to lace, the third edition was dedicated to the Cathedral of St. Jakov in Šibenik (2019), and this year’s fourth biennial edition is dedicated to the amphitheater in Pula, i.e. the Pula Arena – as a motif in textiles, clothing, sculpture, jewelry, photography, ceramics, illustration, caricature, multimedia, etc. Artists of all ULUPUH section were publicly invited through a competition to respond artistically to the overarching theme in their medium of expression by creating a unique work, possibly a recognizable artistic souvenir, or a sculptural work/installation.
