DANIEL BUTALA – monographic exhibition
from March 25th to May 2nd, 2021
Daniel Butala (1943 – 2017) is known as one of the most prominent cartoonists on the contemporary Croatian art scene, whose drawing skills have been particularly noted by the critics. This exhibition contains drawings, paintings and sculptures that the artist has produced for five decades, from the late 1960s to his death in 2017. The many awards that he received in Croatia confirm the quality of his artistic work. His well known topics and motives are closely related to Karlovac (his hometown) and the four rivers that flow through the town; the wildlife, insects, butterflies, grasshoppers, dragonflies and fish, the budding flowers and trees and autumn leaves. One part of the exhibition is dedicated to his take on the mythological themes, the story of Icarus and Daedalus, but also his mastery in depicting Christ’s suffering and transcendence, which can be especially recognized in Butala’s exquisite drawing lines. In each cycle, Butala reveals an amazing relationship of colors and lines in nature’s abounding forms.
BODIES 2.0. – THE MAGNIFICENT UNIVERSE WITHIN US
from April 8 to June 20, 2021
Concert Europe and Outbox proudly present BODIES 2.0. – THE MAGNIFICENT UNIVERSE WITHIN US – An intriguing and world-famous exhibition of the human anatomy “BODIES 2.0 – The Magnificent Universe Within Us” opens at the Klovićevi dvori Gallery in Zagreb. This time, hence the appendix 2.0, we will show bodies still unexposed. The exhibition presents true human anatomy with a collection of 15 human bodies and around 200 organs. The fact that these are real human bodies on display may cause some alarm among individuals, but this exhibition has so far been seen by over 25 million people worldwide. Unlike imitations of the human body through the eye of the artist, this exhibition presents human bodies as they are: healthy or damaged due to disease or lifestyle.
“BODIES 2.0 – The Universe Within Us” is a scientific and educational exhibition that presents to those interested around 200 prepared organs and whole bodies that have been preserved by means of the so-called “plastination” procedure. The goal of BODIES 2.0 is to provide the visitor with an even deeper understanding of the functioning of their body. Visitors will have the opportunity to get to know all the organs responsible for thinking, breathing or even movement, as well as the “highways” of blood circulation that keep the engine going.
In order to respect all safety measures and preserve the health of all visitors, hand sanitizers are provided and entry with masks is mandatory. Tickets are on sale from March 15 via the online platform of the Eventim System at www.eventim.hr, and from April 8 at the box office of the Klovićevi dvori Gallery.

Anton Vrlić – Transformations
from April 15 to July 18, 2021
Transformations features the most recent work of Anton Vrlić: a new series of sculptures and drawings made from 2017 to 2020. Next to each glass sculpture is a drawing that explains the creative process of ‘building’ the glass structures. These drawings lay out the transformations that occur while treating the glass, from the author’s artistic idea, via a sketch, to the final product. Vrlić has also been engrossed in documenting the various possibilities of the medium that he has worked with for more than twenty years.
One of the author’s intentions with the sculpture-drawing combination is to document all the “possibilities” as pertains to the medium. This match will also reveal the development of Vrlić’s personal artistic and pedagogical work, and enable the audience to engage in a more dynamic dialogue with his work. The exhibition reveals the inexhaustibly contemplative character of the author’s repertoire.
ARS ET VIRTUS: CROATIA – HUNGARY. 800 YEARS OF COMMON HERITAGE (virtual exhibition)
Virtual exhibition :
This virtual exhibition is a joint project of the Hungarian National Museum (Budapest) and Klovićevi dvori Gallery (Zagreb). Our goal is to present the Croatian-Hungarian cultural and historical relations in a broad and illustrative context, thus strenghtening the feeling of belonging together in the two nations. Since our common heritage of 800 years is immense, we have divided our exhibition into 8 chapters. The virtual exhibition, currently consisting of 60 objects, guides the visitor – partly chronologically and partly thematically – through representative spaces of the Hungarian National Museum: the Dome, the Ceremonial Hall and the Fireplace Hall.
