MGLC's contribution to This Happy Day of Culture

The first act of the exhibition: the setting up of Invader's sculpture Point of Invasion on the pedestal in front of Tivoli Mansion!

The enigmatic artist Invader surprises us again with his installation in the public space. This time, he speaks to the strollers of Tivoli Park, who are greeted by a new piece on the eminent pedestal, produced especially for the Ljubljana exhibition.

We look forward to the opening of the exhibition as soon as the situation permits. Until then, stay with us on the MGLC social networks!" 

Have a peek at the video!

In the animation The MGLC Noodle 5, Leon Zuodar also brings us closer to his simply conceived but intricate stories, supported by aesthetics and effective narration!

We invite you to come and see his playful works when the situation permits. Until then, we will be keeping you amused in virtual ways together with Leon!
