The Mayor of the City of Dubrovnik, Mato Franković, with his associates, is currently visiting a sister city, Venice, where he opened the exhibition "The Place of Intermittent Departures" on Thursday.
The exhibition is organized in the framework of the 58th Venice Biennale, where Dubrovnik is appearing for the first time, and was realized in co-operation with the twin cities of Dubrovnik and Venice and the Art Gallery of Dubrovnik. The opening ceremony was attended by the Croatian Minister of Culture, Nina Obuljen Korzin, and numerous domestic and international artists from the world of art.
Although the two Mediterranean cities have co-operated before in the field of economy, especially tourism, the exhibition is the first concrete project in the field of culture since the conclusion of a friendship charter that opened the door to similar co-operation in the future. Namely, the aforementioned charter of 2012 emphasized the strengthening of cultural exchanges between the two twinned cities.
The exhibition is located in the Tesa 100 area at Arsenal Nord, and it will remain open until the 24th of November.
