LAST WEEKEND

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

BIRTH AS CRITERION: DISCURSIVE PROGRAMME

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.

The 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts: Birth as Criterion

THE BIENNIAL FOR CHILDREN ... be lively, green and creative in July

During the holidays, daily BIENNIAL WORKSHOPS for primary school children are organised in Tivoli Park in front of the renovated Švicarija Creative Centre and Tivoli Mansion (MGLC). These take place every weekday in July, from Monday to Friday, from 10 am to 2 pm. Applications can be made to the City Association of Friends of Youth ZPM Ljubljana, tel. +386 (0)1 434 03 24, info@mzpm-ljubljana.si.

The workshops interconnect historical myths, the plant and animal kingdom and the nature of Tivoli, movement and play, as well as artistic expression into a whole. The workshops are conducted by academy trained painter Nika Rupnik.

Children can also join the PovezujeM/Tivoli Creative Circle, which is organized by the International Centre of Graphic Arts (MGLC), the National Museum of Slovenia (NMS), the Museum of Modern Art (MG), the National Gallery of Slovenia (NG) and the National Museum of Contemporary History (MNZS). Through play, creative pursuits and socialization, children learn about museums, history and art in a slightly different way. Workshops take place from 10 to 14 July, from 8 am to 4 pm (lunch included). Applications to: natasa.robeznik@muzej-nz.si.
