For more than twelve years the surroundings of Grad Tivoli and Švicarija transform themselves into the biggest green and fresh cultural venue in the city for the summer.

Concerts, film screenings, exhibitions and guided tours, creative workshops – a diverse art programme that infuses the summertime evenings in the midst of nature with a refreshing and unforgettable feel. A meeting place for children and families, young and old, casual dog walkers, connoisseurs and lovers of art. A space between nature and art for us, the community.

Let’s spend the holiday and creative summertime together, united in art and culture!

Admission to the Summer in Tivoli events is free of charge.

Honza Zamojski: Middleman

10. 3.–28. 5. 2023
MGLC Grad Tivoli

Honza Zamojski's latest exhibition is essentially a site-specific installation. It takes place not only within the symmetry of architecture, but often in relation to the symmetry (or asymmetry) of a sheet of paper, a word and a human figure. An attentive viewer will notice that the further one moves away from the centre of the exhibition, the brighter it is and the more there is to see. You could even say that the narrative explodes, and what tries to put it back together again is Middleman holding the collapsing world with all his might.

To accompany the exhibition, NERO's publishing experimentation entitled Can it be tried somewhere? will also be shown.

Marko Šajn: Mutual Compromise

10. 3.–16. 4. 2023
MGLC Grad Tivoli

The exhibition Mutual Compromise presents the latest series of prints in silkscreen and riso-printing techniques, as well as a metal object as a special feature of the exhibition. Marko Šajn's prints are characterised by a clear concept and perfect execution, a humorous, funny, fast-paced, witty and playful artistic expression with many references to art history, classical painting, popular printmaking, urban culture, graffiti and street art.
