Julien De Casabianca Exhibition Opening in Belgrade

An exhibition presenting Julien de Casabianca’s Outings Project is coming to Belgrade and is opening tonight!

Casabianca is a French Corsican visual artist and filmmaker with an international reputation. In 2014 he launched a project to bring paintings ‘locked away’ in museums out onto the streets. To achieve this, de Casabianca selects a number of paintings from a city’s museums and transfers the most striking characters or elements. These are then transferred to that city’s streets using a unique procedure to print the artworks.

Indeed, carefully selected elements artworks from the Gallery of Matica Srpska have already begun appearing on walls in Belgrade.

The paintings were selected in cooperation with around 20 local participants and will also appear in Novi Sad.
