WELCOME TO THE BIENNIAL ARCHIVE WEBSITE

bienale.si

The new website of the Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts has been conceived as an overview of Biennial events from 1955 to the present day. It presents one of the oldest international art events that began with the desire to show a graphic map of the world in Ljubljana. With the introduction of the curatorial approach after 2001, the limitations to a single medium were dispelled and it began to develop into a museum and out-of-museum entity reflecting contemporary art and curatorial practice. The website presents the structural features of each Biennial with lists of artists, prize winners and jurors. The artistic credo of the Biennial is brought closer through the photo galleries and descriptions of the Biennial's main exhibitions, the traditional exhibitions of the prize winners and the accompanying exhibitions. A special section is dedicated to Biennial publications. The Biennial Archive website is conceived as a growing document of a diverse segment of cultural heritage. It is upgraded with the research findings on the history of the Biennial of Graphic Arts as well as topical news to keep you informed about related current events.

Photo/Print: The Role of Photography in 1970s Printmaking and Graphic Design

1.4.2022–19.6.2022
MGLC – Tivoli Mansion

Comprising an exhibition and monograph, the project Photo/Print attempts to highlight this phenomenon of photographic images and photographic thinking in printmaking and graphic design. We are interested in which social, technical and conceptual innovations prompted it and how – given the different artistic movements and contexts – the photographically marked print changed in a fairly short period of just over a decade from the late 1960s to the early 1980s.

In from the Margins - European residency programme - at MGLC

In from the Margins programme is an art residency opportunity for migrant and refugee artists or artists who identify with experience of displacement.

The programme seeks to break down barriers and create opportunities for refugee artists and local communities to share and to learn from each other while being supported by the resources and expertise of print studios. 

As part of the project, MGLC has announced six residencies and has selected the following artists for the residencies: Qëndresë Deda, Francisco Tomsich, Maja Živko, Lina Rica, Azad Karim and Azadeh Hashemzadeh.

In April 2022 MGLC was hosting Lina Rica. The artist, who knows the challenges of moving from her own experience, was working on the topic of home.
Currently we are hosting Maja Živko, the artist is researching feelings that are projected through various living spaces.
