Cooperation between Komercijalna banka and the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade created a new and unique space designed especially for young authors whose time is yet to come – Kombank Art Hall. This gallery will allow students to set their first exhibition. Exhibition of graphics by students of FPU in Kombank Art hall is the first in a planned series of settings.
“We are very excited to make the idea regarding new gallery space in cooperation with Komercijalna banka. That decision was brave and gives a chance to young authors to set their first exhibition, mainly in the field of design, and this is particularly important because there is just a few galleries for design in our capital. In this way, our students will gain valuable experience. ” said Marko Lađušić, Associate Director of Public Relations and International Cooperation of the FPU.
Support for young people, students and talents is the main motive for cooperation between Commercial Bank (Komercijalna banka) and the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade.
“By opening the door of the Kombank Art hall students of the Faculty of Applied Arts, young and not yet acclaimed artists will get a chance to gain the necessary confidence and experience and get the opportunity to exhibit their work and to be a step closer to their first professional engagements.” said at the opening ceremony Goran Milićević Executive Director of Marketing and Commercial Bank, who also added: “Commercial Bank will continue to support young talents and for that reason until February another five students of FPU will exhibit in a renovated exhibition space Kombank Art hall, although this area will also be used for other interesting artistic program. “
