Evento Collaterale Biennale Architettura 2021.
Skirting The Center: Svetlana Kana Radević on the Periphery of Postwar Architecture
Collateral event of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia
Palazzo Palumbo Fossati, San Marco 2597, 30124, Venice Italy
Presented by APSS Institut
The exhibition is a comprehensive retrospective dedicated to architect Svetlana Kana Radević (1937-2000), one of the most prominent ones in socialist Yugoslavia, famous for her synthesis of local materials and international Brutalist tendencies. The exposition features for the first time a complete collection of anti-fascist memorials, hotels, residential projects, and civic buildings that are among the highlights of her research. A selection of recently-recovered original drawings, photographs, and correspondences from her archive, provides the historical context of this often-overlooked figure.
The exhibition is supported by the President of Montenegro, the Municipality of Podgorica, and numerous private companies from Radević’s hometown of Podgorica.
