15.00: GUIDED TOUR OF THE EXHIBITION FROM THE BIENNIAL PRIZE WINNERS COLLECTION: SHIFTS IN THE CANON

Every look at the history of the Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts is also powered by the stories written by the prize winners of this exhibition. The show of works by the prize winners from the MGLC collection opens up a reflection on the message conveyed by the awards of the Biennial of Graphic Arts within the context of the canon of post-war fine art. A selection of rarely seen works from 1955 to the present day is on display. Conducted by the authors of the exhibition Nevenka Šivavec, Breda Škrjanec and Gregor Dražil.
