Ranko Novak The Form of the Content. Graphic Design 1974–2022
15. 9. 2022–13. 11. 2022

This exhibition of selected design works by Ranko Novak, who originally trained as an architect, has been timed to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the birth of the architect Jože Plečnik and provides an insight into the work of one of the City Art Gallery’s key external collaborators. Novak has worked with the gallery both on an occasional basis and, from 1989 to 2002, as an associate, during which time he designed nearly all its visual materials and exhibition layouts.

“A tower, a mule, me and the garden” – that is how Jože Plečnik imagined his life when he didn’t know yet that after Vienna and Prague his native Ljubljana would be his lifetime’s environment for his creative work.

Letizia Battaglia was a nonconformist intellectual and photoreporter but also a poetic and political photographer, a woman who was interested in people, art, literature, poetry, life and death. The exhibition Photography as a Life Choice presents 300 photographs, many of which have never been exhibited before, and which reveal the social and political context in which they were shot.

Suzana Brborović Connections
2. 9. 2022–12. 10. 2022

Suzana Brborović initially only tries to revive the shadows and bring them to light again. This might be because her father is in the construction business in Slovenia. As a child she often wandered around constructions sites, which give a clear idea about architecture, with bare walls that seem like skeletons and are later covered in flattering, reconcilable façade.
