The School of Art Critics titled "Look, Think, Write", implemented by the National Museum of Montenegro (NMCG) in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, is part of the museum education program for 2018, reports Vijesti on April 4, 2018.
The Museum emphasized that it is essential to explain the essence of the project.
"The project will be developed in three parts. The first includes the visit of curators and lecturers to schools, where lectures will be held on three topics: 'What is art criticism'; 'Writing about classical artwork'; 'Writing about Contemporary Art'. Theater critic and book writer Nataša Nelević will give the lectures, along with curators of the art museum, art historians Ana Ivanović and Miloš Marjanović.
The second part is a visit to the Museum for lectures, professional guidance through exhibitions, and acquaintance with the professions and work processes in the museum. The third part is the curator's mentor and counseling work of professors of fine arts, philosophy and literature with children, to help them write criticisms about the selected work/exhibitions, for which the students will have one month to do. The project ends with awarding the three best-written critics. The expert jury from the museum will decide the best, says Natalija Vujošević, museum curator and initiator of the project.
Vujosšević said that the project aims to encourage young people to be better involved and aware of culture while raising and strengthening their level of knowledge about all the segments necessary to create a healthy lifestyle and society. The project also aims to introduce high school students to professions that participate in the creation of programs in the museum and the field of visual art in general.
