MGLC extends an invitation to create a collective document of the time and the unexpected situation that has shocked and shaken the world over. Let’s stay at home and devote our time, which suddenly seems to be overly plentiful, to the pleasurable sides of life. Get a piece of paper ready and use the power of the recipe that you have been keeping under wraps for so long – paint, write, glue, cut, roll, rub off, fix the texture … All contributions sent in will be printed and compiled into a booklet – a zine, received by every single participant.
Print workshop: Let's add some SPRING to our wardrobe
On St Gregory’s Day, the Slovenian holiday that heralds the beginning of the longer days and the arrival of spring, we will be making some art together in the MGLC Print Studios! A print workshop has been organised to mark the occasion, where we will be giving a new look to an old piece of fabric and welcoming spring in fresh new style. Bring a T-shirt, fabric bag or a piece from your wardrobe.

Agnes Momirski: siXren (Verbum Magicae)
Multimedia artist Agnes Momirski is currently creating new work siXren (Verbum Magicae) as part of the residency programme at MGLC Švicarija. In her art practice, Momirski, who has been based in Rotterdam over the past several years, departs from a deeply embodied practice rooted in voice and language, exploring arcane, healing, ritual and ceremonial methods through a posthumanist lens. These inform her artistic executions within the framework of her multimedia performances and videos.

Helena Tahir, Somewhere Near
Helena Tahir (1992) represents the youngest generation of artists to deliberately explore the properties of classic printmaking techniques both in terms of form and content, hence actively co-creating the image of contemporary graphic creativity on the Slovenian art scene. The exhibition presents drawings and prints made over the recent years, some of which are here presented to the public for the first time. Helena Tahir’s graphic prints are characterised by the loquacious interweaving of various images stemming from the imagination, brimming with meaningful associations and historical references that must be carefully observed in order to make them easier to understand.

In collaboration with the Slon Society.
When: Saturday, 14 September, 10.00–16.00
Where: Meeting point at the MGLC reception – Tivoli Mansion (Tivoli Park) at 10.00
