PLASTO-PRINT
Workshop of printing on plastic bags. Used plastic bags are first collected (this can be started at school) and then "ironed" into a larger surface area, which is used to print on. In such a way plastic bags are converted into artworks, whilst learning about recycling and an appropriate attitude towards the environment. The plasto-print products can be assembled into an installation, hence promoting learning about another field of contemporary art. The exhibition in the Gallery serves as inspiration for the creative process. The workshops are conducted by Nika Rupnik.

Upcoming exhibition

Boris Jesih: Connections

30. 11. 2017–11. 3. 2018

Boris Jesih (1943) established himself as an artist at the end of the 1960s as part of the expressive figuration circle of painters. Under the influence of pop art, he responded to the characteristics of the spirit of the time with his geometric transformation of everyday objects, later also turning predominantly to landscape. As a printmaker, he excels in the techniques of relief printing and flat printing, with superior results in colour lithography. As a prize winner of the 13th International Biennial of Graphic Arts in 1979 (special prize for a young artist), he attracted attention with his series of lithographs, a set of which is part of the MGLC collection. Beside the lithographs, the retrospective exhibition also presents drawings, paintings and photographs, which highlight the connections between his creative process and his works.
