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.

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.

Adriena Šimotová: Encounter. Touch and Imprint.

Tivoli Mansion

You are welcome to visit the exhibition Encounter. Touch and Imprint. by Adriena Šimotová. This selective retrospective at MGLC features artworks in which Šimotová radicalized the existentially conceived topic of the human personality while engaging in an earnest determination of the conditions and relationships she found relevant.

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.
