Mile Korubin in Chifte hamam
September 28 @ 20:00 - October 29 @ 18:00MKD100
The motivation to organize an homage dedicated to Mile Korubin (born on the 28th of September 1922 in Prilep, passed away on the 13th of September 2000 in Skopje), a renown Macedonian painter, is the celebration of the centenary of his birth. These jubilees are the principal motivations for the National Gallery, as an institution that cares for the preservation and protection of part of the movable cultural heritage in our country for seven and a half decades, to continuously present the highest national cultural achievements. Onto this primary vision, mission, and function we add our commitment to provide a continuous reminder of the particular characteristics of the key legacy of the work of the great Macedonian modern painters and sculptors, through a selection and presentation of works of art located in numerous state and public institutions in the country, as well as in private collections.
However, the jubilee exhibitions of renown Macedonian artists, continuously prepared by the National Gallery, often exceed the framework of the formal and official observance, because these exhibitions also provide a retrospective snapshot, thus enabling a more thorough review of the work and the development path of the authors. Hence, we always strive to enrich the exhibition with works of art that have not to that have rarely been presented to the public before. Also, one of the most important components involves the desire to have an educational impact, as well so that the patrons of culture can obtain a broader perspective of the development of a particular piece of work, which, in turn, has impacted, during certain historic periods, the trends in Macedonian modern art.
