Branislav Dobanovački's retrospective exhibition is clearly conceived as a recapitulation of artist's design artwork, and it shows all segments of his rich opus from various areas of graphic design. This exhibition will, for the first time, consolidate a large number of posters from different periods (1971-2004), and present them chronologically, as well as by various individual domains dedicated to particular 'involved' posters - music, theater festivals, fine arts, exhibitions, and exhibitions and performances by Novi Sad Academy of Arts, where Dobanovački was a long-time professor.
In addition, the exhibition will include a premiere showing of Dobanovački's two phases of 'involved' posters created in the past year - travel posters, "Serbia That I Love," as well as a series of posters with painful and provocative social subjects from both personal and collective past and present. A part of the exhibition is also dedicated to signs and pictographs, graphic tools and equipment, creating books and records, with numerous examples of applied graphics and graphic design. Special attention is paid to drawings and illustrations, which had been created over a long period of time and had never been exhibited integrally.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a monograph about the artist, published in Serbian and English, with a research essay by MSUV curator and exhibition author Vladimir Mitrović, and apposite texts by Irina Subotić, Siniša Vidaković, and Zagorka Radović.
