The 29th exhibition in the series of visual poetry shows at the Bežigrad galleries in Ljubljana is dedicated to the memory of Živko Kladnik (1948–2017), one of our most important authors of visual poetry. The first retrospective exhibition will present eighteen collages, created by the artist at the start of the 21st century. A characteristic of his collages is the density of scraps and cuttings from newspapers and magazines, pasted on basic surfaces or blind frames.
The exhibition entitled ‘From Sketch to Puppet’ presents the authors of presents puppet sketch, puppet, scenic elements and pfotographs they made for the performances at the Mini Theatre Ljubljana. These are: Iva-Matija Bitanga for the performance Hlapič and Ana Viktorova for the performance The Tale of Tsar Saltan.

Bezigrad Gallery 1
Established in 1976, the Bežigrad Gallery 1 is intended to host smaller overview exhibitions as well as exhibitions of visual and concrete poetry. In late August each year, the exhibition Od skice do lutke (From a Sketch to a Puppet) is staged. Although the exhibition is mainly intended for children, it always attracts a large number of adults as well. The exhibition aims to present those visual artists who are also involved either in creating puppets or sketches for puppets and puppet theatres. The exhibition is also accompanied by video projections of puppet shows and art workshops. This exhibition has been held annually since 1981.
