The museum

MGLC has the largest Slovene collection of fine art prints and original publications produced after the Second World War. It is the only public collection of modernist prints in Slovenia, containing more than 10,000 pieces. 

The majority of the collection is represented by the donations of the artists that have exhibited at the International Biennials of Graphic Arts. Among them are members of the École de Paris, representatives of the COBRA avant-garde movement, artists of Eastern Europe and other internationally renowned artists. The collection also contains the complete or partial print oeuvres of Vladimir Makuc, Janez Bernik, Danilo Jejčič, Bogdan Borčić, Jože Ciuha, Lojze Spacal, Andrej Jemec, Tinca Stegovec, as well as others.

An important part is represented by the collection of art publications, which accounts for about 4,000 pieces – artists’ books, book works, art journals and magazines, newspaper projects, posters and invites, photographic publications, postcards, stamps, stickers, prints, photocopies, sound art CDs, as well as accompanying literature. The collection was formed in 2001 when the Institut Français loaned 378 works by the avant-gardes artists of the 1960s and 1970s. 

MGLC also holds in its collection 425 units from the museum in progress collection of original newspaper projects published in Der Standard newspaper between 1990 and 2002.

ARCHIVE

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.

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.
