Adriena Šimotová: Encounter. Touch and Imprint.

Adriena Šimotová (1926–2014) is one of the most acclaimed figures in Czech visual art. This selective retrospective at MGLC features artworks in which Šimotová radicalized the existentially conceived topic of the human personality while engaging in an earnest determination of the conditions and relationships she found relevant. She perceived her work as an open communicative relationship, with its ethical and spiritual conditionality and ontological correlations of particular importance. In this context, the artist’s exquisite array of methods and vehicles of expression allowed her to explore and reflect on touch and imprint, aspects she understood as integral to the articulation of her authentic artistic statement. Reflecting on the relationship between touch and imprint, she worked with a keen awareness of her own and other people’s corporeality.

34th Ljubljana Biennale of Graphic Arts: ISKRA DELTA

10 September till 21 November

If you thought that the Slovenian/Yugoslavian computer company, which many saw as having the potential to become a global technological power, went dark after 1989, you are mistaken. Iskra Delta, a technology conglomerate, has been summoned from the future to present its covert production at the 34th Ljubljana Biennale of Graphic Arts. Against a backdrop of social and environmental unrest, deep in the pandemic, the story of Iskra Delta and the spectres of the “lost futures” that haunt it provide a spark for imagining and constructing possible alternative presents.

Danilo Milovanović: Direct Effects

Pop-up presentation of pictorial reinterpretations of public actions & the end of the residency in MGLC Švicarija

Danilo Milovanović's art practice is based on works in the public space. Even though they are mostly ephemeral interventions, the artist is always concerned with the way his performances are presented. The two-year residency for young artists at MGLC Švicarija gave him a temporary space to plan and reflect on his art practice. As an artist, he is also always part of different forms of community, where he toys with the roles of creator, activist and performer, curator, director of exhibition spaces and festivals.

Sonja Vulpes, Limbo

 

19. 3.–6. 6. 2021

The title of the exhibition Limbo is a carefully chosen word that can aptly and directly describe the artistic and mental expression of the self-portraits in the latest series of prints by Sonja Vulpes, in which uncertainty, disunity and a sense of being trapped in a state of helplessness prevail, the only solution to which seems to be that this will simply pass. She speaks about it sincerely, without shame and without regard to being judged.

The exhibition was curated by Božidar Zrinski.
