Lungomare

Lungomare is a meeting point and a point of reinterpretation of natural, social and historical heritage through contemporary art, aiming at connecting local communities and visitors – temporary cohabitants of our region.

10 selected locations of the Lungomare flagship – Brseč, Lovranska Draga, Volosko, the Rijeka fish market, the beach Grčevo in Rijeka, Kostrena, Crikvenica, Lopar on island Rab, Baška on Krk and Mali Lošinj make up the natural belt surrounding the bay of Kvarner. They represent different types of communities – city, industrial, tourist, rural, insular, fishing or maritime. The idiosyncrasies of these locations will be interpreted by means of contemporary art in two ways: the literary – short stories inspired by the locations and a series of 10 specially designed art installations dedicated to Lungomare communities placed in public spaces of 10 Lungomare locations, curated by Michal Koleček, and will be produced with the accompanying contents such as a documentary about a creative artistic process, a catalogue, a traveling exhibition, audience development activities involving a digital component and so on.
