24th International Biennial of Graphic Arts

10 June–16 September 2005

The 24th International Biennial of Graphic Arts was marked by certain changes, with emphasis placed on the substance of the graphic arts in the context of newly emerging global art and the new internal organizational structure.

The 24th International Biennial of Graphic Arts comprised four exhibition segments
 

Print World

The exhibition was set in the premises of the Museum of Modern Art and the Jakopič Gallery. The curator Breda Škrjanec based her selection on the questions of how the original nature of print, or the multiplication of image and message, is reflected in mass-circulation goods, and what the common points are between art and ruling ideologies.

Participating artists:
Greddy Assa, John Baldessari, Monica Bonvicini, Daniele Buetti, Marna Bunnell, Guan Ce, Peter Ciuha, Claude Closky, Maja S. Franković, Adib Fricke, Catherine Gfeller, Simon Grennan & Christopher Sperandio, Izabella Gustowska, Damien Hirst, Päivikki Kallio, Micha Klein, Jakob Kolding, Ines Krasić, Oldrich Kulhanek, Kurt & Plasto, Claudia-Maria Luenig, Tracey Moffat, Juan Moro, Blanca Munoz, Marjana Pahor, Elena Panayotova, Chen Qi, Juan Carlos Romero, Thomas Ruff, Morten Schelde, Jonathan Seliger, Liina Siib, Zora Stančič, Fatimah Tuggar, Katja Valanne & Jarno Jokinen, Adriana Varella, Sašo Vrabič, Kara Walker, Christopher Wool.
