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.
