Become A FRIEND OF THE BIENNIAL
A FRIEND OF THE BIENNIAL receives the following benefits in 2017:
•Free admission to all exhibitions.
•A free of charge excursion to Zagreb, where we will view the Print Cabinet of the Croatian Academy of Arts and Sciences, visit the Museum of Contemporary Art, and stroll through the streets of the festively decorated capital, which has been considered as the most beautiful festively decorated city for the past few years now.
•Viewing of a selected artist’s printmaking studio. This time, we have been invited to the studio of Silvester Plotajs Sicoe. Colour is the building block of immeasurable expressiveness to the artist – there can never be too much of it and it positions itself within each piece as a challenge. Sicoe sometimes also crowns his works with a touch of poetry, the master of which he is himself.

•SOCREA workshop – making original festive greeting cards.
•New Year's greeting card – a small fine art graphic print by an invited artist.

Tadej Vaukman: Heaven is a place on Earth
11. 5.–5. 6. 2017, the TAM-TAM Street Gallery at Vegova (opposite Glasbena matica)
opening event: Thursday, 11 May,
at 5 pm
Tadej Vaukman is a photographer in the right sense of the word. He lives with the camera and for photography. He loves chaos, truth and daily reality. While strolling around town, driving a car or riding a bike, during a concert, in his living room, or when visiting his grandma and grandpa, he always finds time to take pictures of naked reality. He shoots exactly what he sees without any subsequent corrections and unnecessary comments.
