Vlado Martek Exhibition with Many Titles
12. 7. 2019–8. 9. 2019
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.

Yet in more recent years “Europe under siege” has become a curiously common phrase, concentrating as it were a landlocked imaginary full of fears, not as much for the underground streams pushing from the darkness beneath, as for the external seas walking on European streets and the threat of aberrant fires.

In his fifty years of sculpting, Jiři Bezlaj has produced numerous sculpture series and cycles that have left a recognizable mark on contemporary Slovenian sculpture.

His art language is unique, full of imagination and authorial freedom.

Past exhibitions

Marjan GumilarCUTS
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 exhibition
Iztok SitarUnder 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.

group exhibition
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.
