MGLC Švicarija is a creative centre closely linked to the location and history of the building, which already had an operational role as a production space in previous decades.
Currently, Švicarija is again offering temporary working spaces for their creations to thirteen local artists who have been selected through public calls for submissions: Lea Culetto and Adrijan Praznik (young artist's studio), Anja Jerčič Jakob, Damijan Kracina, Silvan Omerzu, Tanja Pak, Silvester Plotajs Sicoe, Marija Mojca Pungerčar, Ana Sluga, Zora Stančič, Martina Štirn, Miha Štrukelj and Veljko Zejak.

Samuel Grajfoner: The Material Presence of the Mental Imprint
21. 1.–8. 3. 2022
MGLC - Tivoli Mansion
The exhibition presents large-format prints in the techniques of engraving and drypoint, created in recent years and mostly presented to the public for the first time. They reflect the artist's understanding of the creative process as a spontaneous, organic development of the preparation of the matrix, which materialises in an impression on paper or, for the first time, in bronze.
Opening of the exhibition: on Friday, 21 January 2022, at 6 pm, at the International Centre of Graphic Arts in Ljubljana.

Adrijan Praznik: --WHERE OUR HEARTS HAVE LED US…
7. 1.−13. 2. 2022
Adrijan Praznik plays various roles in the world of art – he is a painter, illustrator, curator, producer and artistic director of Simulaker Gallery in Novo mesto. In January 2022, he completed a two-year artist residency at MGLC Švicarija. Upon his departure, he prepared the exhibition --WHERE OUR HEARTS HAVE LED US... The spatial installation of two large-scale paintings raises questions that illustrate his work and research focus in 2021 particularly. Namely, he is concerned with the form and status of the artwork, the appropriation of the media image and the combination of pictorial means of expression as well as materials.
