This most valuable collection of contemporary art ceramics of the National Museum in Arandjelovac originated from the international festival “World of Ceramics” within the frames of the internationally renowned multimedia manifestation “Marble and Sounds”. The collection houses over 600 exhibits. Until the year 2010, works of 258 national and foreign artists including those from former YU republics had become part of the collection. Due to the lack of adequate space and professional staff, the process of designing the collection could not begin in the first years of the festival. However, the engagement of the Museum of Arandjelovac in the 1980s enabled collecting of objects, museum processing of items and establishment of necessary documentation. This collection represents a most significant segment of general changes, trends and new tendencies in contemporary Yugoslav and Serbian art ceramics from the 1970s until the present.
In the study of the collection of contemporary art ceramics of the National Museum in Arandjelovac a complex approach is required ranging from the research of specific elements that affect its formation – the general social, political and economic situation in the country, rules of selection and other yardsticks, including the genesis of the contemporary Serbian ceramics and diverse ways of its development – up to its historic-artistic evaluation within contemporary Serbian and world art. Fundamental deliberations may precede particular analyses of individual art works based on esthetic values categories, styles, technical-technological achievements and specific phases in the creative opus of an artist. Complex investigations accompanying thematic and retrospective exhibitions help complete the picture of accomplishments in ceramic art.
The retrospective exhibition of contemporary art ceramics in the National Museum in Arandjelovac offers fifty five select works. The basic aim was to offer a synthesis of diverse artistic expressions, as well as patterns of thought and innovations developed within the period of almost four decades.
