Record low attendance

According to people from the Ilija Milosavljević Kolarac Endowment, attendance at the Ranko Radović 2021 Awards exhibition is on record low. Namely, after the grand opening and the award ceremony, everyone visited the exhibition a dozen stakeholders – which is devastating. Namely, the Music Gallery is locked, no one is on duty in it and you can enter if the guard lets you go at your personal insistence.

It is a real miracle that ULUPUDS as an association with 68 years of tradition i over 1,000 active members, as well as associated partners, in the case of such an important professional recognition as the Ranko Radović Award, are not interested in the professional and general public for the issue of contemporary architectural creativity, and the promotion of prominent authors and examples of good practice.

Whether the traditional ways of exhibiting architecture through posters in gallery spaces are outdated and unattractive to the public – is the question that arises from the case of the organization of this exhibition. But what is certain is that ULUPUDS as an association requires a comprehensive regeneration and more modern access promotion applied arts and design.
