About MGLC

The International Centre of Graphic Arts is a specialized museum and producer of printed and contemporary art, based on the heritage of the Biennial of Graphic Arts and 20th century art of printing. MGLC was established on 25 December 1986 by the city of Ljubljana, upon the initiative of the longtime head of the Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts and director of MGLC, dr. Zoran Kržišnik.

It has been the job of MGLC from the outset to perform a number of activities that are interrelated and complementary in their nature. It takes care of the extensive collection of prints and artists’ books produced after the Second World War. Works from the collection are available to view in the Study Room and are accompanied by a library accessible to the public. 

The institution’s most recognizable activity is the Biennial of Graphic Arts, which is known as the world’s oldest graphic arts event.

 

The symbol for the Biennial of Graphic Arts was created in 1963 by Jože Brumen, and the International Centre of Graphic Arts took it as its own once it was established.
