About the exhibition

Julije Knifer (1924 in Osijek – 2004 in Paris) was one of the most internationally renowned artists from Croatia post-1945, who achieved world fame in the fields of concrete and conceptual art. He had an exhibition at the MoMA, and works of his are owned by the Centre Pompidou, to name just the most prominent institutions. His connection to Graz is his participation at trigon 77 (‘The Creative Process’). The Neue Galerie Graz, too, possesses works by the artist in its collection. The exhibition is a joint collaboration with the MSU – Muzej Suvremene Umjetnosti/Museum for Contemporary Art, Zagreb, occasioned by Croatia’s Presidency of the EU in the first half of 2020.
