With uncompromising activity, creative enthusiasm, and commitment to the ethical principles of street art, Invader has for more than 20 years been instrumental in making street art an increasingly important part of contemporary art. Invader is an artist, an individual, a movement, an app, a game, and a lifestyle. He is a street art phenomenon who, since first presenting his work at MGLC in 2006, has become a global star in the art world. Now, 15 years later, he returns to Ljubljana. This exhibition will bring together for the first time his publications, maps of invasions, and nearly one hundred original screen prints, lithographs, woodcuts, and other graphic works.

The exhibition stems from a series of short phone animations produced by Leon Zuodar on a Samsung GT-C3350 called The Noodle during the period of 2014–2015, in the run-up to the flood of smartphones and social networks. He posted his interactive ha-ha-haiku animations on a YouTube channel. These were sent to a select audience on the artist’s mailing list via e-mail. The e-mails with the short animations arrived with the caption, “A noodle a day keeps the doctor away”, a short, parsimonious dose of morning humour. This is a two-part exhibition. It presents the story of telephone animations from the period of 2014–2015 and their adaptation to a gallery space employing various graphic techniques.

This December, the International Centre of Graphic Arts and Menažerija present the largest Art Advent Calendar in Slovenia. The exhibition Menažerija: 37 Days of Christmas at Tivoli Mansion is conceived as a large Advent calendar with artworks by the Menažerija art brand, presented to the public in succession from 1 December to Christmas, 24 December. Every day a new art piece will be unwrapped and exhibited at MGLC and presented on social media. The unwrapped exhibition with all the works will be on show from 25 December to 6 January 2021, Epiphany, when, as is traditional for putting away the Christmas tree at home, the exhibition at Tivoli Mansion also comes to a close and is tidied up.

You will be able to experience a selection of Menažerija’s hits as well as never-before-seen works. More than half of them are art pieces made especially for this exhibition. The collection 12 Art Prints in the exhibition was created in the MGLC Print Studios.

MGLC's contribution to This Happy Day of Culture

The first act of the exhibition: the setting up of Invader's sculpture Point of Invasion on the pedestal in front of Tivoli Mansion!

The enigmatic artist Invader surprises us again with his installation in the public space. This time, he speaks to the strollers of Tivoli Park, who are greeted by a new piece on the eminent pedestal, produced especially for the Ljubljana exhibition.

We look forward to the opening of the exhibition as soon as the situation permits. Until then, stay with us on the MGLC social networks!"

In the animation The MGLC Noodle 5, Leon Zuodar also brings us closer to his simply conceived but intricate stories, supported by aesthetics and effective narration!

We invite you to come and see his playful works when the situation permits. Until then, we will be keeping you amused in virtual ways together with Leon!

Have a peek at the animation!
