Become A FRIEND OF THE BIENNIAL

A FRIEND OF THE BIENNIAL receives the following benefits in 2017:

•Free admission to all exhibitions.
•A free of charge excursion to Zagreb, where we will view the Print Cabinet of the Croatian Academy of Arts and Sciences, visit the Museum of Contemporary Art, and stroll through the streets of the festively decorated capital, which has been considered as the most beautiful festively decorated city for the past few years now.
•Viewing of a selected artist’s printmaking studio. This time, we have been invited to the studio of Silvester Plotajs Sicoe. Colour is the building block of immeasurable expressiveness to the artist – there can never be too much of it and it positions itself within each piece as a challenge. Sicoe sometimes also crowns his works with a touch of poetry, the master of which he is himself.

•SOCREA workshop – making original festive greeting cards.

Watch out! Wet print! #5 freštreš

freštreš: ČŠŽ

4. 7.–8. 8. 2017

opening event: Tuesday, 4 July,
at 5 pm

the TAM-TAM Street Gallery at Vegova (opposite Glasbena matica)

The freštreš art collective has prepared three posters, which are interlinked by the concept of the generational evolution of the style of video games over the last four decades. Each of the posters explores one of the three typical periods of the formation of the "covers" and "screenshots" of the games during this time interval. The first poster covers the period of pixel art of the 1980s and 1990s. The second poster passes into the awkward phase of the "low poly" models of the 1990s and is especially inspired by the "anime" art of the time. The third poster explores and caricatures the hyper-realistic three-dimensional renders of modern consoles.  

The project entitled ČŠŽ explores the aesthetic values of the mentioned periods and plays with the social context of design and illustration through a recognizable humorous and critical freštreš approach.
