The museum is displaying works from Tošo Dabac’s studio associated in the 1950s and 1960s with the EXAT 51 group, Zagreb Music Biennial, New Tendencies and Zagreb Fair.
He was at the crossing of artistic and intellectual personalities and ideas that synthesized and functioned as a propulsive source of ideas that have left a mark on both Croatian and international art. With his camera, Dabac recorded all those moments.
It was during that special time between work and fun that Dabac started to take photographs of Ivan Picelj raising one question: when did this friendship begin or what was the moment when their strictly professional contact evolved into something much more?
The collaboration of the two artists started in the 1950s and it would most probably continue to this today if both artists were still with us. This close collaboration between the Dabac’s studio and Ivan Picelj continued long after the death of Tošo Dabac in 1970.
The Tošo Dabac Archives preserves the negatives and photo enlargements of Picelj’s works along with the EXAT 51 group’s works. There is also a collection of private photographs with Picelj.
