The exhibition Golgotha opens at the National Museum of Modern Art on 19 April at 7 pm. This case study exhibition, conceived by art historian Zvonko Maković, PhD and organized by the NMMA’s senior curator Lada Bošnjak Velagić, presents different contemporary receptions of Kraljević’s Golgotha from 1912, in the works of the new art generation of artists who defined our visual arts scene during and immediately after World War I (Ljubo Babić, Marijan Trepše, Sava Šumanović).

The exhibition will present the paintings of Golgotha by Miroslav Kraljević, Ljubo Babić and Marijan Trepše from the collection of the National Museum of Modern Art in Zagreb, and the interpretation of the same theme by Sava Šimanović, which has been loaned for this very occasion by the National Museum in Smederevska Palanka, Serbia.
