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the loquacious interweaving of various images stemming from the imagination, brimming with meaningful associations and historical references that must be carefully observed in order to make them easier to understand.

When: Saturday, 14 September, 10.00–16.00
Where: Meeting point at the MGLC reception – Tivoli Mansion (Tivoli Park) at 10.00
The workshop is suitable for young people aged 9+ and is free of charge.
