The first posthumous retrospective exhibition titled: “Mersad Berber – The Allegory of Bosnia”, was opened in the City Hall this evening. This unique exhibition consisting of 35 paintings from the most important phases of this eminent painter, graphic artist and tapestry designer’s work, was held under the auspices of the member of BiH Presidency, Bakir Izetbegović, and co-sponsored by the Mayor of the City of Sarajevo, Abdulah Skaka and Berber family.
“You have here before you one of the most important art exhibitions of the last half century. It gives me great honour to be a patron of this unique cultural event which we are full heartedly presenting as a gift to all the citizens of Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina”, said Izetbegović.
Mayor Skaka expressed his pleasure at Berber’s works being exhibited in the beautiful ambience of the reconstructed Sarajevo City Hall, an architectural pearl, worthy of the exhibited works by one of the most important Bosnian and Herzegovinian artists.
Members of Berber family were present at the exhibition opening as well as guests from political, public and cultural life of the city and country.
Citizens and guests from the city and the whole country will be able to visit the exhibition for the next two months.
