PLASTO-PRINT
Workshop of printing on plastic bags. Used plastic bags are first collected (this can be started at school) and then "ironed" into a larger surface area, which is used to print on. In such a way plastic bags are converted into artworks, whilst learning about recycling and an appropriate attitude towards the environment. The plasto-print products can be assembled into an installation, hence promoting learning about another field of contemporary art. The exhibition in the Gallery serves as inspiration for the creative process. The workshops are conducted by Nika Rupnik.

David Lynch, Fire on Stage

13. 4.–29. 7. 2018

The first presentation of the American film director, scriptwriter, photographer, painter, musician and printmaker David Lynch in Slovenia. The Fire on Stage exhibition offers a selection of seventy fine art graphic prints produced in the lithography technique. The presentation is rounded off by paintings from private collections, watercolours, as well as a selection of experimental and animated films. What all the displayed works have in common is the intertwining of the surrealistic, expressive and grotesque, by which a Lynchian atmosphere is established. This will be followed in the exhibition set-up with a stage-like feel conjured up by set designer Branko Hojnik.
