Exhibition of Paintings and Sculptures “Call Me Tenderness” by Miljan Stevanović and Rade Mutapović at the Cultural Center of Serbia in Paris.

Artists Inspired by Prevert’s Poetry

March 14 – April 7, 2024

“Call Me Tenderness” (“Appelez-moi tendresse”) is the title of the exhibition of paintings and sculptures by Miljan Stevanović and Rade Mutapović, which will be open on March 14 at the Cultural Center of Serbia in Paris, produced by the Gallery Štab from Belgrade. These are the latest productions of the two young artists, whose work the Štab gallery follows and supports.

This exhibition represents a unique poetic, artistic exploration inspired by the noble, tender, and utopian poetry of Jacques Prévert. The large-format paintings by Miljan Stevanović depict one of the most prevalent themes in the entire history of art – landscape. The depicted landscapes are associative, undefined, and therefore universal – executed in the language of lyrical abstraction. In the unique garden of lush colors and organic landscapes, there are also carefully selected animal sculptures by Rade Mutapović from Prevert’s poetry. They are simultaneously innocent and wild, with powerful symbolism pointing to the archetypes of eternally opposed sides – love and hate, good and evil, temptations and forbidden fruit.

The exhibition “Call Me Tenderness” can be viewed from March 14 to April 7, 2024, at the Cultural Center of Serbia – 123 Rue Saint Martin, Paris. The grand opening is scheduled for Thursday, March 14, at 7 p.m.
