Students of Savremena Gimnazija love art: Visiting Kiki Smith's exhibition

A visit to the exhibition of Kiki Smith, one of the key artists of the world art scene, proves that students of Savremena Gimnazija have the opportunity to attend various events in our city, but also that the teachers know how to include all current events in the curriculum. The exhibition "Humans and other animals" presents works of art created during the multi-decade creative career of this important artist: from the 90s of the last century, when the artist mainly dealt with the subject of the human body in various aspects, to works from the 2000s, in which she focuses on animals, fables and nature.

Our students are richer for a new experience and a new perception of works of art

Art professor Zorana Milićević, the initiator of the visit, and English teacher Milica Aleksić designed the project task and led the students to get to know art, which left a great impression on all of them.

Although they did not know the artist's oeuvre and did not know what to expect, after seeing the display and with the explanations they received from the curator, everyone left richer for a new experience and a new perception of the works of art. With that, they successfully completed the project task and presented the exhibition to their friends in their own way.

In anticipation of new cultural events in the city, our students express their creativity almost every day through numerous school activities that include art and design.

I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum
