The Serbian-American Friendship Congress and the Diplomacy & Commerce magazine will organize the first Day of America in Belgrade on September 9 this year.
The daily program will be held in the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia, where the President of the Republic of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, General John Harris from the Ohio National Guard, and Christopher Hill, the US Ambassador in Belgrade, will make opening speeches.
The panelist will then exchange insights and views about security, energy, and economic ties between Serbia and the United States.
The influence of American artists on Serbian culture and the role of the Serbian artists on the US cultural scene will be discussed later as part of the evening program on site of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade.
The highlight of the first Day of America in Belgrade will be an exclusive one-day-only showing of Andy Warhol’s Four Jackies painting which will be brought out from the Museum’s depot on that occasion.
The program also includes video installations dedicated to Belgrade’s streets with American names like George Washington str, John Kennedy str, Nikola Tesla str, Mihajlo Pupin str, Andy Warhol str, Little America str in Rakovica neighborhood, and Woodrow Wilson Boulevard in Belgrade Waterfront quarter.
