The Print Studios

The MGLC Print Studios are organized as a production centre, offering artists the opportunity to print in a variety of printmaking techniques. They are able to make their prints themselves or can be assisted by the masters of the craft.

In their early years, the Print Studios’ primary job was the preservation and protection of cultural heritage. During this period the reprints of works by Janez Bernik, Andrej Jemec, Veno Pilon, Riko Debenjak, Bogdan Borčić, Karel Zelenko and Marijan Tršar were produced. Later, the production in the Print Studios focused on using certain classic printmaking techniques like intaglio printing, lithography and silkscreen. But the Studios were always conceived to function as a research laboratory, where local and foreign artists can explore their visual ideas as well as further their knowledge and skills.

As a production centre, MGLC offers various ways of participation. For the production of original art prints, the board of experts selects projects every year to be financed and produced in the MGLC Print Studios. Artists may apply personally by the end of the calendar year, however, MGLC may put out a call for submissions if required, or alternately make a direct invitation to a certain artist to engage in the production of a project. 

In the case of co-productions, MGLC takes care of technical and spatial requirements, and the projects are selected on the basis of artists’ proposals. In both cases, production or co-production, MGLC receives two copies of the graphic print for its permanent collection. The MGLC Print Studios are also available to hire.
MGLC offers free use of their print studios at the headquarters of MGLC to students and educators of ALUO for educational purposes.

EXHIBITION INVADER, PRINTS ON PAPER EXTENDED

Until Sunday 15 August

Invader's exhibition Prints on Paper offers viewers the opportunity to discover a lesser-known aspect of the artist's work – printmaking. The retrospective exhibition presents everything from screenprints to lithographs, from woodcuts to four-colour prints, and from invading maps to guides. The more than one hundred works on paper were created from 2001 to 2020, and the exhibition is complemented by Invader's selection of original short films. The artist also prepared the sculpture Point of Invasion especially for the exhibition, which addresses walkers in the park from its pedestal in front of Tivoli Mansion.
