From its inception in 1999 and its first public manifestation at the 2001 Venice Biennale, Tadej Pogačar’s "CODE:RED" has seen numerous presentations, interpretations ...
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, responsible for The Oscars film awards, invited to their ranks one of the most productive and internationally successful Slovenian film authors – Špela Čadež. The artist is currently presenting her works at the City Art Gallery of Ljubljana, part of the »Prrrrrrr« group exhibition.
Last year, the City Art Gallery of Ljubljana hosted the provocatively titled exhibition Better Doggy Style than no Style, which displayed a selection of male painters, and now it is women artists who are wittily striking back with their own “pussy style”. The current “Prrrrrrr” exhibition is presenting artists who are only just entering the field of contemporary visual art as well as artists who have already drawn considerable attention to their work with the consistency of their approach, public appearances and accolades, including important international awards.
“He is best remembered by how he ran naked down a street, strolled around, laid on a sidewalk, and kissed the asphalt. He would consciously use mass media to establish himself as an uncompromising artist, as well as consciously triggering polemics, scandals, police interventions.

City Art Gallery of Ljubljana
By organising retrospective and overview exhibitions, the Gallery has put on display many works of art by many of the most renowned Slovenian artists from various generations whilst, by exhibiting the current art production, the Gallery has attempted to present a specific excerpt from individual artists’ oeuvres. Special attention has always been paid to presenting younger artists and, especially, new generations of artists. The Gallery has always aimed to identify the most outstanding art phenomena in Slovenia.
