The Image of a Letter and the Letter of an Image

Bežigrajska galerija 2 is presenting the painter’s personal vision of his own imaginations and – never fully elaborated – synchronicity between Old Church Slavonic Glagolitic script engraved in stone and typical, adopted coastal dry stone walls – gromače (pl.) (From the tekst © Željko Marciuš)

A painting exhibition dedicated to a Slovenian author who lived in Slovenia in his youth, but spent most of his life in Croatia. This is the artist's first solo overview of chosen works in Slovenia, presenting drawings and paintings from the period between 1956 and 1974 during the author's transition to complete abstraction.

The Bežigrjska galerija 2, in coproduction with the Moderna galerija Ljubljana, Moderna galerija Zagreb in  Muzej suvremene umjetnosti Zagreb, presents an overview of Oton Gliha's works selected from collections especially for this exhibition.
