Exhibition by Prešeren Fund Award Winner Tinca Stegovec

Opening, Friday, 10 March, at 6 pm, Gallery of the Prešeren Award Winners, Kranj

10 March–15 April 2017

You are cordially invited to the opening and viewing of the exhibition of prints by Tinca Stegovec, academy-trained painter and printmaker, and Prešeren Fund Award winner for 1976. The artist and her work will be presented at the opening by dr. Milček Komelj and mag. Breda Škrjanec. The exhibition includes 45 fine art graphic prints from the period between 1964 and 1984.

The exhibition was produced in cooperation with the International Centre of Graphic Arts on the occasion of the artist's life jubilee.

Tinca Stegovec is a Slovene painter and printmaker, a follower of the Ljubljana School of Graphic Arts. In 2010, she donated her entire printmaking oeuvre together with matrices and four drawings, as well as a large portion of her specialist library, to MGLC. The exhibition Tinca Stegovec, Prints and Drawings from the MGLC Collection followed a year after that, which was the first comprehensive presentation of the artist's printmaking oeuvre, placing her in the historical canon of modern Slovenian printmaking, within which the excellence of her colour aquatints had not come to full force in the past. In addition to her aquatints, the display also included woodcuts, lithographs, etchings, soft-ground etchings, matrices and drawings.

WATCH OUT! WET PRINT! #2

Mina Fina: Za vse je pravi čas / If only for the joy of my sadness

4. 4.–9. 5. 2017, the TAM-TAM Street Gallery at Vegova (opposite Glasbena matica)

opening event:
Tuesday, 4 April, at 5 pm

The project Za vse je pravi čas / If only for the joy of my sadness is based on the visual density of the space formed by the artist with the silhouettes of plants and human bodies. The plants, with their pristine appearance, simplicity of form, intertwining and complexity build up impassable, overgrown and lush landscapes in a contrasting environment of light and shadow. They include the flat and empty silhouettes of human figures, stripped of detail, but with an emphasised body language, in unnatural and played-out poses.

Watch out! Wet print! #1

Last week to see the exhibition:

Matjaž Wenzel: Men Face Down

7. 3.–3. 4. 2017, the TAM-TAM Street Gallery at Vegova (opposite Glasbena matica)

opening event: Tuesday, 7 March, at 5 pm

The exhibition begins the third season of the TAM-TAM Street Gallery at Vegova ulica in Ljubljana. In 2017, its curatorship has been taken on by the International Centre of Graphic Arts. Through our selection of artists and works, we are highlighting contemporary printed art. The cycle has been curated by Božidar Zrinski. In the past two years, twenty-five artists have been presented as part of the By The Way cycle under the auspices of Kino Šiska. On this occasion, a concluding catalogue to the project, Street Gallery LJ2016, will also be available to view.

The photographic project Men Face Down explores the phenomenon of the human figure lying-down in the public space and its effect within it, as the figure omits to take the usual vertical/standing pose, but finds itself in a horizontal – lying-down position. The depicted subjects include anonyms as well as carefully selected people from the public and cultural life. Their attitude towards the environment is expressed within an intimate, hermetic relationship in some cases, and as a recognizable commentary in others. The selection of the locations of the stagings stems either from the artist's suggestion or the choice of the subject, who experiences the chosen space as a place invested with an emotional or intellectual relationship.

Matjaž Wenzel (1973) is an artist working in the field of photography, video and graphic design. He has designed many books and book covers. He was the recipient of the best book design award in 2007 and 2016, and the Glazer Award in 2011. His photographic works have been presented in several solo and selected group exhibitions at home and abroad, and he was also a finalist for the OHO Award in 2007. He lives and works in Maribor. He is currently also showing his work in the Zines!, Contemporary Zine Production exhibition.

In co-operation with TAM-TAM Company.
