The Centres of Printmaking: At the Intersection of Knowledge, Learning and Cooperation
11. 10. 2016−8. 2. 2017
On the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of its foundation, the International Centre of Graphic Arts has prepared an exhibition in cooperation with two similar institutions in Belgrade – Centar za grafiku i vizuelna istraživanja and Philadelphia – The Print Center. The exhibited works reflect the latest trends in the field of the graphic arts followed by the centres.
The exhibition was curated by:
Božidar Zrinski (MGLC, Ljubljana), John Caperton (The Print Center, Philadelphia), Ljiljana Tašić ("Akademija" Centre for Graphic Art and Visual Researches, Belgrade)

Tomas Vu, Rirkrit Tiravanija, GREEN GO HOME
20. 12. 2016−8. 2. 2017
In 2013, Tomas Vu participated in the 30th Biennial of Graphic Arts and received the Audience Award for the series Songs from the Beatles' "The White Album", presented for the first time. The story of GREEN GO HOME is part myth and part folklore. Wherever the installation is put on view, a spirit of resistance is invoked – resistance against the invader, the colonial power, or the repressive government.
Curator: Božidar Zrinski

Contemporary zine production

24. 2. −28. 5. 2017
The exhibition presents an overview of the concurrent production of zines, artist's books and special graphic editions by local and foreign authors as well as publishers, and questions why handmade fanzines are still so popular.
Curators: Lara Plavčak, Božidar Zrinski

32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts: Births as Criterion
16. 6.–29. 10. 2017
The 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts presents its main exhibition and traditional exhibition by the recipient of the Grand Prize of the previous Biennial, Ištvan Išt Huzjan, as well as a retrospective exhibition by Maria Bonomi. This year's Biennial will not take the format of a curated exhibition as was the case up till 1999. It is conceived as a rhizomatic structure and on the principle according to which artists select artists. In terms of content, the starting point of this edition of the Biennial is poetry, which raises the question: are words precisely those new images that are turning art movements towards language, reading, writing as well as performance and illustration of the written?

Boris Jesih, Connections
24. 11. 2017–11. 3. 2018
A retrospective exhibition of the artistic oeuvre by Boris Jesih with an emphasis on printmaking. Alongside his lithographs, the exhibition will also present drawings, paintings and photographs, as well as most recent works, mainly painting triptychs, some for the first time.
Curator: mag. Breda Škrjanec

LEALUDVIK: In the waters on Leviathan; I would go poof!

6. 6.–3. 7. 2017

opening event: Tuesday, 6 June,
at 5 pm

In the waters on Leviathan is an alternative version of the project I would go poof! – it only replaces the forest for the sea, and bites harder into occult symbolism. "I would go poof" came the smiling response from Charles Manson to the question posed by the judge about his plans in the event of parole. The assumption of man as a free being is a delusion. We live in fear, endless routine, helplessness. We are trapped in an "open" prison. Freedom is an illusion. Due to all the effort, man's desire for freedom, "parole", exit or at least passage to another state, is becoming all the more common. As a result, most people seek a magic solution—> to disappear without a trace: Poof!

The 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts: Birth as Criterion


The birth of Birth as Criterion – on the genesis and protocols of the 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts

Thursday, 6 July, at 18.30, Škuc Gallery, free entrance

Discussion on the basic ideas, rhizomatic structure, process of work, development of the exhibition, as well as all the dilemmas and decisions taken during the organisation of the 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts at the exhibition THIS IS NOT A NAME at the ŠKUC Gallery. The exhibition offers a condensed insight into the making of this year's experimental format of the Biennial and, along with the presented works, attempts to awaken thinking and pondering, doubts and concerns, and to provide a different view of the Biennial's main exhibition and its emergence in the light of the central endeavour of this year's Biennial edition: searching for new ways of conceiving exhibitions.
The debate will involve Miklavž Komelj, Yasmín Martín Vodopivec, Vladimir Vidmar and Nevenka Šivavec, the members of the Biennial Committee and the curators of the exhibition THIS IS NOT A NAME.
The discussion will be moderated by Miha Colner.
