75 years of the Graphic Collective

Since its establishment in 1949, together with the gallery, it has been, and still is, one of the leading art centers in Serbia (and ex-Yugoslavia). Through the history of this gallery, the development of graphics in the second half of the 20th century can be traced in national and international frameworks. By promoting graphics, graphic design and other forms of visual arts, GK acts as a mediator in the critical reception of significant phenomena in contemporary artistic practice.

GK’s professional reputation is based on a diverse program, high criteria, tradition and enthusiasm; it is open to new phenomena, directions, experiments.

Who are the founders of the Graphic Collective?

Well-known and established artists of the first generation of graphic artists of the Belgrade Academy of Fine Arts: Boško Karanović, Mirjana Mihać, Dragoslav Stojanović Sip, Dragoljub Kažić and Mile Petrović.
