With the first comprehensive exhibition project Švicarija: Community, Art and Nature, MGLC Švicarija has outlined the content guidelines that connect art and culture with current social questions, ecology, environmental issues and the community of people in solidarity. We are becoming a model of an inclusive and multidisciplinary institution that also intervenes in the public space and the environment of Tivoli Park. Our engagement is socially critical, capable of reflection on the phenomena of the present time as well as self-reflection on our own actions.

A pop-up exhibition presentation of the production at the end of the Prague & Ljubljana international residency.

Wednesday, 3 August 2022, at 5 pm
MGLC Grad Tivoli, Print Studio
free entry

In 2022, International Centre of Graphic Arts and the international residency center MeetFactory from Prague started a long-term collaboration of resident artist exchanges. After a two-month residency (June–July), Timur Aloev presents works created in the MGLC Print Studio.

Each residency will host an artist for two months and give them the opportunity to create new works. The first artist to visit Ljubljana was Timur Aloev (1990), a Russian-Czech illustrator and painter who lives and works in Prague. He also works in drawing and ceramics. His work has its origins in Slavic mythology, heroic stories, legends and fairy tales. The narrative character of his artworks also stems from the artist's primary interest in book illustration and comics, whereas pictorially he combines elements of Romanticism, Renaissance landscapes, Art Nouveau décor, Japanese anime and kitsch. During his two-month residency, he explored printmaking techniques in the MGLC Print studio and will present his working process and new prints at the culmination of his residency.

Prints and Impressions 2

The exhibition is the result of a public call for submissions to Slovenian artists of all generations actively working in the field of fine art printing and printmaking. It serves as a starting point for further research into Slovenian graphic production and its involvement in the contemporary visual art practices.

An international expert jury consisting of Barbora Kundračíková (CZ), Mario Čaušić (HR) and Miloš Đorđević (RS) selected the works of 43 artists from the 114 submissions.
