Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Art Pavilion is traveling to the Island of Lopud, accompanied by the symposium “Patronage of Space”Your black horizon, a remarkable light installation by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, was commissioned by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary and inaugurated to great critical acclaim in June 2005 as an official project at the 51st Venice Biennale of Visual Arts. London-based architect David Adjaye was engaged to work in close collaboration with Eliasson and to conceive an environment in which art and architecture were from the outset considered as one, “an interlocking equation”. It is this relationship, one of engagement and response, and a constant revision of prescribed boundaries between disciplines, that T-B A21 aspires to encourage on a broad and courageous scale.

Gorgeous Lopud Island is little more than a stone’s throw from Dubrovnik. It’s always seemed more conducive to contemplating nature than contemporary art but that’s about to change. This intriguing exhibition will be on display from June 20 to October 31, 2007 and admission is free! All the more reason to make Lopud a day trip from Dubrovnik.
