CC Tobačna 001 is nominated for the best art gallery by “Ljubljana in Your Pocket City Guide”. The annual vote, organized by “Best of Ljubljana”, takes place on the national Culture Day honouring the great nineteenth century poet and cultural icon, France Prešeren.
“Dante Buu is a young Montenegrin artist currently participating in the artist-in-residency programme in Ljubljana. He comes from Rožaje – a town in Sandžak, situated on the border between Montenegro, Kosovo and Serbia. Producing needlepoint tapestries and various kinds of needlework, Dante creates art that is in complete contrast with the typical patriarchal mainstream."
The CC Tobačna 001 starts off its programming year with the exhibition of Jasmina Cibic, who represented Slovenia at the 55th Venice Biennale with her project “For Our Economy and Culture”.
