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.

Natalija Juhart Brglez: Everyday Lines

25. 10.–4. 12. 2022
MGLC Grad Tivoli
Opening:Tuesday, 25 October 2022, at 1 pm.

The exhibition Everyday Lines presents graphic works in which artist Natalija Juhart Brglez alters the recognisable and expected image and understanding of the historically established artistic motif of the city view. A simple pictorial language is based on lines, colour planes, the introduction of intentional and unintentional errors, and a relaxed understanding of mirror drawing in the creation of the matrix. In this way, she reveals to us the image of the city, which is not just a snapshot of the actual situation but is outlined before us as a living space with many unique details.
