"My father taught me how to appreciate art. He encouraged me to look with the curious eyes of a child. Later, during my studies in Art History, I learned that in order to fully understand a piece of artwork, you need to explore the time and conditions in which it was created.
As a guide, I share my knowledge about the context in which a work of art was produced. But I also want to encourage visitors to look at art with childlike curiosity because there’s always something new to see in any piece of art. I always learn new things, too, from looking and talking with visitors. I love working with our small groups at Paris Muse because of the stimulating, truly shared experience we can have."
My favorite place in Paris for discovering international contemporary art is Gallery Thaddaeus Ropac in the Marais. It is an amazing space with well-designed exhibitions in one of the most beautiful districts of Paris.
After earning a degree in Art History from the University of Belgrade, Serbia, Asja started her career as an Assistant Curator and Gallery Manager in commercial galleries in her hometown. In 2010, she decided to expand her professional expertise to include the protection of cultural heritage and acquired an MA in Cultural and Heritage Management from the University of Turin, Italy. During this time, she became increasingly interested in art criticism and started writing features and exhibition reviews. After arriving in Paris she decided to return to her true passion and try her hand at teaching art history and world heritage as a guide.
