The Centres of Printmaking: At the Intersection of Knowledge, Learning and Cooperation
11. 10. 2016−8. 2. 2017
On the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of its foundation, the International Centre of Graphic Arts has prepared an exhibition in cooperation with two similar institutions in Belgrade – Centar za grafiku i vizuelna istraživanja and Philadelphia – The Print Center. The exhibited works reflect the latest trends in the field of the graphic arts followed by the centres.
The exhibition was curated by:
Božidar Zrinski (MGLC, Ljubljana), John Caperton (The Print Center, Philadelphia), Ljiljana Tašić ("Akademija" Centre for Graphic Art and Visual Researches, Belgrade)

Tomas Vu, Rirkrit Tiravanija, GREEN GO HOME
20. 12. 2016−8. 2. 2017
In 2013, Tomas Vu participated in the 30th Biennial of Graphic Arts and received the Audience Award for the series Songs from the Beatles' "The White Album", presented for the first time. The story of GREEN GO HOME is part myth and part folklore. Wherever the installation is put on view, a spirit of resistance is invoked – resistance against the invader, the colonial power, or the repressive government.
Curator: Božidar Zrinski

Contemporary zine production

24. 2. −28. 5. 2017
The exhibition presents an overview of the concurrent production of zines, artist's books and special graphic editions by local and foreign authors as well as publishers, and questions why handmade fanzines are still so popular.
Curators: Lara Plavčak, Božidar Zrinski

32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts: Births as Criterion
16. 6.–29. 10. 2017
The 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts presents its main exhibition and traditional exhibition by the recipient of the Grand Prize of the previous Biennial, Ištvan Išt Huzjan, as well as a retrospective exhibition by Maria Bonomi. This year's Biennial will not take the format of a curated exhibition as was the case up till 1999. It is conceived as a rhizomatic structure and on the principle according to which artists select artists. In terms of content, the starting point of this edition of the Biennial is poetry, which raises the question: are words precisely those new images that are turning art movements towards language, reading, writing as well as performance and illustration of the written?

Boris Jesih, Connections
24. 11. 2017–11. 3. 2018
A retrospective exhibition of the artistic oeuvre by Boris Jesih with an emphasis on printmaking. Alongside his lithographs, the exhibition will also present drawings, paintings and photographs, as well as most recent works, mainly painting triptychs, some for the first time.
Curator: mag. Breda Škrjanec

Tadej Vaukman: Heaven is a place on Earth

11. 5.–5. 6. 2017, the TAM-TAM Street Gallery at Vegova (opposite Glasbena matica)

opening event: Thursday, 11 May,
at 5 pm

Tadej Vaukman is a photographer in the right sense of the word. He lives with the camera and for photography. He loves chaos, truth and daily reality. While strolling around town, driving a car or riding a bike, during a concert, in his living room, or when visiting his grandma and grandpa, he always finds time to take pictures of naked reality. He shoots exactly what he sees without any subsequent corrections and unnecessary comments.
