MADE IN CHINA PROJECT25. 02. 2014 - 16. 07. 2014
The MADE IN CHINA project will now be hosted for several months in an art institution that supports the initiatives for greater empowerment of artists and art professionals in the production of art, its presentation, distribution and sales.
The multiples from the MADE IN CHINA production line, which are individual pieces or the derivatives of bigger gallery projects produced by Slovenian artists, will be on display and available to purchase at the International Centre of Graphic Arts.
The following are taking part in the project: Jože Barši, Viktor Bernik, Lada Cerar, Ksenija Čerče, Vuk Ćosić, Boštjan Drinovec, Vadim Fiškin, Ištvan Išt Huzjan, Janez Janša, Janez Janša, Janez Janša, Žiga Kariž, Alen Ožbolt, Arjan Pregl, Sašo Sedlaček, Sonda, Veli & Amos, Matej Andraž Vogrinčič, Sašo Vrabič, Laibach and designer Vasja Cenčič.
The International Centre of Graphic Arts in Ljubljana serves the project as an exhibition venue for the currently available production of MADE IN CHINA – a place of occasional events related to the project and a place where affordable purchases can be made, through which the visitor can become the owner of original art pieces, hence contributing to the development of the project and the visual arts.
The MADE IN CHINA multiples are both commodity and artwork, whose goal it is to find the path of art to the audience. This is why the project strives to not negate that which it is – an art project – and that which it wishes to become – the beloved object of adoration on the consumer’s shelf.
