Overview exhibitionJiři Bezlaj
28. 11. 2019–19. 1. 2020
It was the first time I took a thorough look at it, it was lying on the river bank and shimmering unusually, it was a sunny day and the clear sky was above us, a blue sky spread over the stone and me, the air was clear, sharp and cool and I, the sculptor, I gazed at it for a long time, not wanting to look away, I did not move, not for a millimetre did l move my feet, I stood upright, stood still in the place and kept my eyes down, on it, on the stone I was looking, the stone which was lying quietly there on the shore and waiting.

Yet in more recent years “Europe under siege” has become a curiously common phrase describing a landlocked imaginary full of fears, not so much of the underground streams gushing forth from the darkness beneath, but of the external seas walking on European streets and the threat of aberrant fires.

The first retrospective of Vlado Martek art in Rijeka, "Exhibition with Many Titles", presents a wide variety of media, concepts and topics whose point in common is the artist’s experimental use of language. The exhibition reveals the artist’s beginnings in the 1970s, his breakthrough onto the art scene after graduating in literature and philosophy, and his work as a member of the Group of Six Authors, which left an impact on Martek’s art in general.

overview exhibitionMarjan Gumilar
4. 4. 2019–2. 6. 2019
Rather than a classic retrospective overview, this exhibition of Marjan Gumilar’s painting thematically revolves around one of the main recurring and constitutive elements in his art, a correlate in the process of constructing the pictorial field – the cut as the functional prerequisite of montage in various positions and pictorial relations, initially a part of his early collages and a method of work in his recent visualizations.
retrospective exhibitionIztok Sitar
30. 1. 2019–24. 3. 2019
Reality knows no tranquility. A work of art either moves toward presenting reality or away from it in order to forge its own parallel reality: like any visual work of art, the comic lies within these principles of presenting any reality.
