Belgrade’s variety of art galleries and museumsoffer a window into Serbia’s history, culture, and identity. Medieval Serbian art was dominated by Byzantine influences and primarily expressed the religious themes of the Eastern Orthodox Church. The 19th century witnessed a revival in Serbian art, which was influenced by major Western movements such as Romanticism, and avant-garde movements like Cubism in the 20th century. Serbia’s dynamic contemporary art scene is now represented by a variety of galleries across the capital.
The gallery associated with the Remont Independent Art Association of art historians and artists opened in 2000 and exhibits pieces by young and emerging Serbian artists working in a variety of media, from photography and sculpture to conceptual art. The gallery is one of Belgrade’s most popular venues for contemporary art, and serves as a local meeting place for artists and culture enthusiasts. It focuses on showcasing innovative artistic practices and is committed to fostering regional and international cultural cooperation.

Founded in 1919 by a group of artists and sculptors, the Association of Fine Artists (ULUS) created the first arts council at the Ministry of Education and founded the first universal organization for Yugloslav artists, extending invitations to all artists working in the new Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. Today the ULUS Gallery holds ongoing exhibitions of work by both younger and more established artists covering many aspects of Serbian contemporary art (painting, sculpture, photography).
