ICOM Serbia Award for the Institution of the Year

The Museum of Applied Art and the National Museum in Belgrade, Serbia, have received the ICOM National Committee Serbia Annual Award for the Institution of the Year 2016 for their joint participation in the international project Ceramics and its Dimensions.

The Museum of Applied Art and the National Museum in Belgrade were organisers of Module 1 – Symposium: Ceramics between Change and Challenge – between Past and Present. The Module was launched in 2015 by organising and holding the Symposium in the Gallery of Frescoes of the National Museum, Belgrade, on 20 and 21 May 2015, and it was completed in 2016 with the publication of the Symposium Proceedings titled Ceramics between Change and Challenge – between Past and Present. Twenty participants from nine countries presented their works at the Symposium.

At the same time, the Museum of Applied Art hosted the exhibition European Cultural Life Style in Ceramics from Baroque until Today (organised by Museo Internazionale delle Ceramiche in Faenza). These two Modules commenced the realisation of the whole project since the exhibition was first opened in Belgrade.

The ICOM National Committee Serbia Annual Award for the Institution of the Year 2016 has been granted to the Museum of Applied Art and National Museum in Belgrade for exceptional results achieved in the field of international cultural cooperation, in the development and improvement of museum activities, in research, protection and presentation of cultural heritage, and thus in the development of culture in Serbia as well.
