The Centres of Printmaking: At the Intersection of Knowledge, Learning and Cooperation

The International Centre of Graphic Arts is celebrating 30 years of its existence. On this occasion we have prepared an exhibition in collaboration with two similar institutions from Belgrade and Philadelphia. The exhibition, which is conceived as an exhibition of (three smaller) exhibitions, presents the centres and the works from their collections as well as current production. The key themes of the visit are: presentation of the three centres of printmaking as the current state of creativity within the graphic arts, diversity of mediums and genres, as well as developmental directions of the visual and graphic arts. The viewing of the exhibition will be conceived interactively. We recommend this to be supplemented with an activity from the regular programme of workshops and demonstrations. The exhibition will also be adapted for viewing by visitors with special needs (sensory impairments).

20 December 2016–8 February 2017
Tomas Vu, Rirkrit Tiravanija GREEN GO HOME

Tomas Vu is an American artist, who received the Audience Award of the 30th Biennial of Graphic Arts (2013).
The prints and texts – the graffiti that cover the portraits – come from the collaborative installation by Tomas Vu and Rirkrit Tiravanija at the Colombian-American library in Bogotá. Wherever the installation GREEN GO HOME is put on view, a spirit of resistance is invoked – resistance against the invader, the colonial power, the repressive government. Each figure represented by the portraits is revolutionary – revealing itself to the viewer as someone addressing the condition of the graffiti text. GREEN GO HOME is a wall of resisters, and of resistance.

24 February–28 MaY 2017
(Fan)zines today?!

The exhibition will be a "live" presentation. It will change through its "gallery time" and "breathe" with its visitors, who will be invited to take an active role in attending, transforming and co-creating it.

And what is actually a fanzine or a zine? This is a "do it yourself" publication, which can be produced by anyone using low-cost technologies, such as photocopying, if only they possess the idea or desire to do so. Young people today are embarking upon production by adopting the following methods: DIY (Do It Yourself), DITO (Do It TOgether) and DIWO (Do It With Others).

During the course of the exhibition, a "fourth method" or programme is being introduced for school groups: DIU (Do It with Us). The guided tours and presentations will be spiced up by screen-printing and Risograph printing workshops, conducted by the authors. School groups visiting the exhibition will also be invited to create their own page of the fanzine. All pages will be included into a joint publication and will be announced publicly after the closing of the exhibition.

Upcoming exhibition

Boris Jesih: Connections

30. 11. 2017–11. 3. 2018

Boris Jesih (1943) established himself as an artist at the end of the 1960s as part of the expressive figuration circle of painters. Under the influence of pop art, he responded to the characteristics of the spirit of the time with his geometric transformation of everyday objects, later also turning predominantly to landscape. As a printmaker, he excels in the techniques of relief printing and flat printing, with superior results in colour lithography. As a prize winner of the 13th International Biennial of Graphic Arts in 1979 (special prize for a young artist), he attracted attention with his series of lithographs, a set of which is part of the MGLC collection. Beside the lithographs, the retrospective exhibition also presents drawings, paintings and photographs, which highlight the connections between his creative process and his works.
