| Marina Viculin (1957 – 2015) was an art historian whose rich professional career covered various areas of art, but she predominantly worked with living artists and in the field of contemporary art. She could, however, easily switch between different historical periods and various professional topics. She was active at various institutional levels, and she held expert and management positions. From 1989, until when she had been working as an independent art critic and curator, she worked as a curator at the Museum Space (Muzejski prostor), later renamed the Museum and Gallery Centre (Muzejsko galerijski centar) and finally the Klovićevi Dvori Gallery (Galerija Klovićevi dvori) where she became a museum adviser and acted as the director from 2012 until her premature death in 2015. As a PhD, she also worked in the academic sector.
