Biennial

Foundation Milena Pavlović Barilli Gallery Milena Pavlović Barilli is a real treasure of the cultural heritage of the artwork of Milena Pavlović Barilli, as well as the paintings of contemporary artists close to Milena's poetics and dreams. The contemporary art collection began its life in the same year 1962, when the Milena Pavlović Barilli Gallery was opened, with the unique art festival "Dream and Imagination". The art manifestation "Dream and Imagination" was the inspiration for the First "Milena Pavlović Barilli" Biennial in 1983, which opens on her birthday, November 5. From the second Biennale in 1985 until today, this art manifestation, at the suggestion of Jovan Rajković, was named "In the light of Milena". In 1997, the seventh Biennale acquired an international character. The main task of the Biennale is to respect the original, ethical and aesthetic principles of the life work of Milena Pavlović Barilli and establish an unbroken thread between the eternal and the present. At the Biennale, official prizes are awarded according to the evaluation of the expert jury and a plaque with her image, work, by Nebojša Mitrić. The contemporary art collection of the Milena Pavlović Barilli Gallery includes 74 works (prints, watercolors and drawings). The works of art were created in the period from 1959. to 2023., and were acquired through purchases and gifts from the author. The artists whose works are in the collection represent the contemporary art scene in the second half of the 20th century and in the first decade of the new century. The paintings are filled with visions, fantasies and exploration of the spiritual space. Basically, the paintings are imbued with surrealism, touching the field of metaphysical painting and magical realism painting, realizing a specific type of poetic fantasy.
