Črtomir Frelih: Prints and Drawings. Four Decades.

25. 10. 2022–12. 2. 2023
MGLC Grad Tivoli
Opening: Friday, 25 October 2022, at 1 pm.

Črtomir Frelih: For Real, 2021, intaglio, 48 x 34,5 cm

Natalija Juhart Brglez: Everyday Lines

25. 10.–4. 12. 2022
MGLC Grad Tivoli
Opening:Tuesday, 25 October 2022, at 1 pm.

The exhibition Everyday Lines presents graphic works in which artist Natalija Juhart Brglez alters the recognisable and expected image and understanding of the historically established artistic motif of the city view. A simple pictorial language is based on lines, colour planes, the introduction of intentional and unintentional errors, and a relaxed understanding of mirror drawing in the creation of the matrix. In this way, she reveals to us the image of the city, which is not just a snapshot of the actual situation but is outlined before us as a living space with many unique details.
