Survey exhibition of engaged comics
Iztok Sitar Under the Red Star
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.

Overview exhibition
Marjan Gumilar CUTS
4. 4. 2019–2. 6. 2019
Marjan Gumilar, a lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Ljubljana, is a painter, sensitive colourist drawing on modernist abstraction of abstract expressionism. In his painting practice moving in the constant interaction between emotion and ratio, he has been exploring the autonomy of colour and its laws within a wide spectrum of thematizations and reflections of immediate reality, ranging from nature to a physical painting, an object.

Prrrrrrr
28. 6. 2018–9. 9. 2018
Artists presented at the exhibition: Suzana Brborović, Špela Čadež, Olja Grubić, Duša Jesih, Simona Semenič & Nada Žgank, Maja Smrekar. Following last year’s group exhibition of male painters, provocatively entitled "Better Doggy Style Than No Style", staging a show featuring an all-female selection was a must this year, in part also due to last year’s polemics a propos the not yet eradicated discrimination against women in society, and therefore in art and culture.

Tugo ŠušnikQuasimodo (1971 – 2017)
30. 11. 2017–21. 1. 2018
Tugo Šušnik, so it seems, could not have defined his forty-four years of artistic activity in the public eye in a more radical manner and with more self-irony than he did by means of the metaphorical title he selected for his overview exhibition, which is personified by the famous character of Quasimodo from the novel Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo.
