Athropocene is the era in which we live, and the data we collected show that things are already out of range. Things are out of control, they are "fuoriscala".

City Art Gallery Ljubljana
Dragica Čadež
Overview Exhibition
Dragica Čadež A Story of Wood and Clay
19. 11. 2020–9. 2. 2021

Academically trained sculptress Dragica Čadež marks the Slovenian artistic or cultural space with great creative energy. Through her distinct artistic language, she has created an extensive opus of various series, cycles and individual works, both public (she is the author of many important public sculptures) and private sculptures, so she certainly deserves an extensive exhibition presentation.

Late Antique gravestone from Gosposvetska Street From Museum Treasury
21. 12. 2020–28. 3. 2021

From the first third of the 4th century CE to the early part of the 5th, there was a cemetery beneath present-day Gosposvetska Street, to the west of the main northern approach road to the Roman Emona. The cemetery had grown up around a structure that contained a number of graves and that had been built there in the second half of the 3rd century. The oldest of these graves, which are probably early Christian, was of a woman and contained a blue glass bowl.

In the 18th century, in central Slovenia, with Ljubljana as the focal point, Baroque art flourished in all the fields of the arts and crafts. It was particularly strongly expressed in fine art, which was by far the most creative and stylistically distinguishable.

Vision 20/20: Community. Contemporary Indonesian Engaged Photography
23. 10. 2020–31. 12. 2020

After being with us for more than seven months, we have now said goodbye to the incredible exhibition, which was realised in extraordinary times. The exhibition of contemporary Indonesian engaged photography, which inspired us, moved us deeply, and led us to look beyond the horizon of stereotypes is still virtually accessible – through the photographs and virtual tours.

Maja Smrekar
Maja Smrekar Optical Disturbance
24. 12. 2020–21. 1. 2021

Many natural history museums around the globe are facing the dilemma of how to adjust the presentation of their collections in line with new trends. It is not a coincidence that while the public is witnessing a clash between the advocates and opponents of dioramas – with the former finding them as much under threat as animals and ecosystems exhibited, and the latter regarding them as an obsolete propaganda tool used by imperialist forces – Maja Smrekar is seeking to bring the diorama back to life in her project Optical Disturbance.
