The exhibition "Nikolai Gusovsky. Ballad of the Bison", honouring the 500th anniversary of the poem's first publication, opened on April 13 at the Atrium gallery (3rd floor).
A representative of new–Latin poetry, one of the founders of the lyrico-epic poem genre in the literature of Eastern Europe, Nikolai Gusovsky became the author of the poem "Carmen de statura feritate ac venatione Bisontis" ("Song about the sight, rage of the bison and the hunt for it"). Thanks to Gusovsky's talent and rich life experience, the poem turned into a song of his heart, a hymn to the motherland.
The exhibition presents publications from the collection of the National Library of Belarus, united by a common theme of the poem's plot, as well as works by Belarusian artists, Belarusian and foreign undergraduates and students of the Belarusian state academy of arts and students of the I.V. Akhremchik gymnasium-college of arts.
The exhibition provides an opportunity to travel back half a millennium and form your own idea of the greatness and treasures of the ancestors of modern Belarusians.
Entrance to the rest of the time the entrance is available by the library ticket or ticket of the library's social and cultural center.
The opening hours of the exhibition corresponds to the library’s opening hours.
The exhibition will run until May 30, 2023.
The end date of the exhibition can be changed.
