The International Centre of Graphic Arts has been engaged in publishing ever since its first exhibition in 1989 and issues a range of publications, catalogues, monographs and pamphlets. The publications accompany the solo, group as well as visiting exhibitions featured in the MGLC programme. Every two years a more extensive catalogue is published on the occasion of the International Biennial of Arts. MGLC stores and cares for, but also sells, all the catalogues from the very first International Biennial of Graphic Arts in 1955.
MGLC ŠVICARIJA: OPEN CALL FOR CRITIC-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAMME 2022
MGLC Švicarija, a creative and residential centre, in collaboration with the Igor Zabel Association for Culture and Theory invites art critics and cultural journalists from international milieu to apply for a fully funded, one-month residency in Ljubljana during October 2022.
Our aim is to host an art critic or cultural journalist active in writing and publishing reviews and/or other forms of art writing in the international context, and who is interested in Ljubljana’s vibrant art scene and will produce at least 1 piece of writing (review, interview, column or essay) on selected artist(s), art exhibition(s) or art event(s) in Ljubljana over the course of the residency. The text should be published in the English language in a relevant periodical (printed or online), radio, television or personal blog. The selection will also take into account whether the applicant already has an agreement or confirmation for the publication in relevant media of the text to be produced during the one-month residency.
We invite to apply art critics and cultural journalist from international milieu (applicants from Slovenia are not eligible).
Deadline for applications: 10 January 2022.
