18. 11. 2014–1. 3. 2015
The first major solo exhibition by Alenka Pirman features an overview of her projects that have marked the Slovenian cultural arena in the last twenty-five years. The exhibition highlights the techniques, tactics and methods of research and distribution of her artistic ideas tied to various situations that are specific in terms of space and subject, to which she has often responded with irony, sarcasm and doubt. The collected works thus offer new readings and interpretations, which make them relevant also in this moment of time.
Curatorial team: Barbara Borčić, Alenka Pirman, Nevenka Šivavec, Božidar Zrinski
Co-authors of the exhibited works: Tibor Bolha, Vuk Ćosić, Damijan Kracina, Jani Pirnat, Maja Šubic, Darja Vuga, Irena Wölle
These are the stories that are made up of Ljubljana Castle, Tivoli Mansion – the International Centre of Graphic Arts (MGLC), Fužine Castle – the Museum of Architecture and Design (MAO), and Cekin Mansion – the National Museum of Contemporary History.
A single ticket gives access to see the current displays in all four castles. The ticket is valid for three days. Available to purchase at the respective castles’ points of sale and at the Ljubljana Tourist Information Centres (TIC).
Information on the presentation and programme of the participating castles and institutions can be obtained from the websites of the institutions, as well as in the special brochures entitled The Stories of Ljubljana’s Castles, published in Slovenian and in English, which can be found at information points in Ljubljana and across Slovenia.
Ljubljana Tourism and DPG are partners in the project.
