Lopud Art Pavilion opened again

Lopud Art Pavilion
Lopud, the island in the near vicinity of Dubrovnik, will once again be a gathering point next summer for people into modern art and summer joys, thanks to Thyssen- Bornemisza Art Contemporary (T-B A21) Foundation.

The Summer Pavilion has opened its doors for the second season running with Your Black Horizon at the beginning of May, a joint work by the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson and David Adjay, a London architect.

The unique lighting installation for Your black horizon in the Art Pavilion was commissioned for the first time by the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (T-B A21) Foundation and ceremonially presented with great success to critics and the public as part of the official 51st Biennial Fine Art program held in Venice in 2005, and during the 10th Biennial of Architecture also held in Venice in 2006.

The Pavilion combines art and architecture into one, and its uniqueness lies primarily in its adaptation to the specific location and environment. In setting up the exhibit on Lopud, the artist Olafur Eliasson adapted the internal lighting installation of the Pavilion to the conditions of lighting on Lopud.

The Pavillion will remain open until the end of October.
