The Study Room

The Study Room was opened due to increasing public interest and as an addition to study. It is intended for in-depth research of art publications, although it can also house exhibitions.

The visitor to the Study Room can browse through the artists’ books by authors included in the collection, since in addition to prints, the MGLC collection comprises also publications of various genres, whose common denominator is reproduction technique, from artists’ books, art journals, culture magazines, to posters, sound art CDs and theoretical literature. The MGLC collection therefore contains more than 4,000 pieces. 

Available to flick through are Viks art and culture magazines, most issues of the Point d'Ironie hybrid periodical, Gorgona, SMS, 0 TO 9 and Pist Prota. Housed in the collection are also posters and notices of the FV group (donated by Neven Korda), the archive of The Scarecrow Statelet (donated by Milena Kosec), an extensive archive on the events on the Zagreb art scene from the 1970s up till the 1990s, the complete archive of Bernard Villers’ self-published Éditions du Remorquer, as well as the collection of original newspaper projects museum in progress from Der Standard newspaper.

The materials from the collection can be viewed by prior arrangement.

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.
