Mission

MGLC is a special but extrovert museum with a clearly emphasised identity, based on the heritage of the Biennial of Graphic Arts and the 20th century art of printing. The museum is also an important producer of graphic and contemporary art. The museum does not merely seek its place within the existing art system, but goes beyond the prevailing Eurocentric direction with its collections and unique graphic arts Biennial. At MGLC we are well aware of the fact that the times in which we will seek the true essence of art will soon be upon us again. Our task is not merely to preserve the heritage for future generations, but to provide the conditions for art to be encountered, enjoyed and even created by the widest possible range of people.

Vision

MGLC will become an accessible, friendly, contemporary and internationally relevant museum of graphic arts of the present and the future, as well as a vibrant cultural and educational centre dedicated to the public in the broadest sense of the word.

Boris Jesih: Connections

30. 11. 2017–11. 3. 2018

Boris Jesih (1943) established himself as an artist at the end of the 1960s as part of the expressive figuration circle of painters. Under the influence of pop art, he responded to the characteristics of the spirit of the time with his geometric transformation of everyday objects, later also turning predominantly to landscape. As a printmaker, he excels in the techniques of relief printing and flat printing, with superior results in colour lithography. As a prize winner of the 13th International Biennial of Graphic Arts in 1979 (special prize for a young artist), he attracted attention with his series of lithographs, a set of which is part of the MGLC collection. Beside the lithographs, the retrospective exhibition also presents drawings, paintings and photographs, which highlight the connections between his creative process and his works.

Tanja Radež: HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018

5. 12. 2017–8. 1. 2018

TAM-TAM Street Gallery at Vegova ulica (opposite Glasbena matica)

Tanja Radež often finds herself in a quandary over the sense of creating national symbols. The symbolic emblems of national identity are often only adornments and no longer support the construction of a bright future. However, the symbols and colours persist through a changing history, since man must quite clearly lay the boundaries of his existence and mark the sovereignty of the group to which he belongs.
