'Midsummer Scene /Night Dubrovnik' his last exhibition in Croatia, opened in Dubrovnik, on June 2016 – commissioned by the City of Dubrovnik for their annual festival 'Midsummer Scene'.
“The 13,” his most recent exhibition previewed at the Embassy of the Republic of Croatia in London from May 25th – June 26th.
Bari Goddard's exhibition traces both Dubrovnik and Midsummer Scene Festival during the seasons 2015 and 2016, when the festival staged the critically acclaimed international box office hit “Twelfth Night” and “Hamlet” featuring the first woman in the titular role of the play on a major Croatian stage. In a blend of behind and on the stage photographs from Midsummer Scene productions, Illyria and Elsinore - two vital, almost mythical Shakespearean locations - come together with Bari Goddard's unique portrait of Dubrovnik that has proved as the perfect stage for great classical theatre.
The exhibition will be held from the 1st to the 7th of July in the Sponza Palace in the Old City of Dubrovnik and admission is free of charge.
