Art Exhibition ART EXPO in 2022

One of the characteristics of this year's ART EXPO has been the exhibition “Sequences from the 20th Century Art in Vojvodina”, which has presented the works of authors from Novi Sad - Jovan Soldatović, Jožef Ač, and Boško Petrović. The achievements of three artists belong to the treasury of painting and sculpture of Vojvodina, and we would like to remind you that the visual identity, the symbol of the oldest fair house in Serbia, the sculpture "Rearing" is the work of Jovan Soldatović.
