The Centres of Printmaking: At the Intersection of Knowledge, Learning and Cooperation

The International Centre of Graphic Arts is celebrating 30 years of its existence. On this occasion we have prepared an exhibition in collaboration with two similar institutions from Belgrade and Philadelphia. The exhibition, which is conceived as an exhibition of (three smaller) exhibitions, presents the centres and the works from their collections as well as current production. The key themes of the visit are: presentation of the three centres of printmaking as the current state of creativity within the graphic arts, diversity of mediums and genres, as well as developmental directions of the visual and graphic arts. The viewing of the exhibition will be conceived interactively. We recommend this to be supplemented with an activity from the regular programme of workshops and demonstrations. The exhibition will also be adapted for viewing by visitors with special needs (sensory impairments).

20 December 2016–8 February 2017
Tomas Vu, Rirkrit Tiravanija GREEN GO HOME

Tomas Vu is an American artist, who received the Audience Award of the 30th Biennial of Graphic Arts (2013).
The prints and texts – the graffiti that cover the portraits – come from the collaborative installation by Tomas Vu and Rirkrit Tiravanija at the Colombian-American library in Bogotá. Wherever the installation GREEN GO HOME is put on view, a spirit of resistance is invoked – resistance against the invader, the colonial power, the repressive government. Each figure represented by the portraits is revolutionary – revealing itself to the viewer as someone addressing the condition of the graffiti text. GREEN GO HOME is a wall of resisters, and of resistance.

24 February–28 MaY 2017
(Fan)zines today?!

The exhibition will be a "live" presentation. It will change through its "gallery time" and "breathe" with its visitors, who will be invited to take an active role in attending, transforming and co-creating it.

And what is actually a fanzine or a zine? This is a "do it yourself" publication, which can be produced by anyone using low-cost technologies, such as photocopying, if only they possess the idea or desire to do so. Young people today are embarking upon production by adopting the following methods: DIY (Do It Yourself), DITO (Do It TOgether) and DIWO (Do It With Others).

During the course of the exhibition, a "fourth method" or programme is being introduced for school groups: DIU (Do It with Us). The guided tours and presentations will be spiced up by screen-printing and Risograph printing workshops, conducted by the authors. School groups visiting the exhibition will also be invited to create their own page of the fanzine. All pages will be included into a joint publication and will be announced publicly after the closing of the exhibition.

NEW – Change of date of the Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts

The 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts will be on view from 16 June to 29 October 2017

In all Directions

performance at the exhibition Fair Game

Sunday, February 17, at 4 pm

The Korean dancer Yong Min Cho will carry out a dance intervention at the Fair Game exhibition based on the language of the body, setting up and articulating unusual and new trajectories among the individual artworks. Nathalie Du Pasquier has designed and selected some of the accessories that will be used in the performance by Yong Min Cho. These include graphic pieces reminiscent of road signs. And it is precisely these signs that have inspired the title Tutte le Direzioni – taken from an Italian road sign, which indicates the way leading in all directions.

NATHALIE DU PASQUIER, FAIR GAME

30. 11. 2018–3. 3. 2019

Nathalie Du Pasquier’s compositions transform the interiors of the International Centre of Graphic Arts into a series of immersive microenvironments, sampling from over three decades of the artist’s paintings, prints, drawings and murals, as well as a new series of silkscreen prints, which was produced precisely in the screen-printing studio of the International Centre of Graphic Arts in Ljubljana.

Du Pasquier first made her name with vibrant, eye-catching graphics and textile prints shaped by the artist’s eclectic influences, boundless imagination and impulse towards experimentation. Since the late 1980s, she has focused primarily on painting, building up a tremendous body of work, much of which has yet to be exhibited publicly. Fair Game shuns a chronological ordering in favor of forging more intuitive formal affinities between the various series. Assorted elements or objects appear and reappear in different compositional configurations, like a card in a deck that takes on new powers and limitations with each hand dealt. This visual vocabulary is distilled in a new series of silkscreen printed modules – or as the artist calls it, “virtual furniture.”

Curator of the exhibition is Kate Sutton.

(in Slovene at 5 pm)

MILTON GLASER, POSTERS

23. 11. 2018–3. 3. 2019

Milton Glaser (1929, New York) is one of most important graphic designers in the world, who has designed hundreds of corporate images, magazines, newspapers, books, LP covers, and has created thousands of posters during his career spanning over fifty years. He has been inscribed into the world history of design with his iconic “I love NY” logo. Milton Glaser has decided to donate thirty-five original posters (created between 1966 and 2016) to the City of Ljubljana, which will enrich the collection of the International Centre of Graphic Arts after the exhibition.

A special thanks on the occasion of the exhibition goes to Mirko Ilić, who came up with the idea for the donation in 2017, when he was hosted at the Festival of Tolerance as a lecturer and the author of the TOLERANCE exhibition. The show is organised every year by Mini teater and the Ljubljana Jewish Cultural Centre with the support of the City of Ljubljana (MOL).
