Infeld Cultural Center Dobrinj
07.07.2024 to 29.09.2024

In summer 2024, the Infeld Cultural Centre in Dobrinj, Krk Island, Croatia, will focus on the representation of women in art. The “Women” collection exhibition showcases the evolving perception of women in relation to the progressive detachment from traditional gender roles. Old ideas and patterns are reimagined and painted, including works from female perspectives. The collection features approximately 130 works by 47 artists.

Kicking things off are the Pop Art superstars Andy Warhol (USA, 1928-1987) with his iconic “Marylin” portrait and Allen Jones (UK, 1937) with the extraordinary table study for Stanley Kubrick’s film “Clockwork Orange”. Heroines, goddesses and wonder women are also the erotic power women depicted by Mel Ramos (USA, 1935-2018). The naked beauties gaze down coquettishly and seductively from their cosy Olympus, lending a friendly warmth to the forced alliance between the female body and mass-produced goods.
