Let It Be Queer!
The LGTB exhibition will be an extensive survey of works related to the question of genders. The exhibition will present the views and thoughts on fine arts by selected artists, who are socially critical, but, at the same time, develop a contemporary aesthetics and lyricism.
The selected artists are: Andrea Knezović, who creates works permeated with powerful political references to social structures and the politicisation of the intimate in contemporary environment; Andrej Brumen Čop, whose painting develops in line with the events in his life; Andreja Gomišček, whose works problematise social issues through the prism of lesbian and gay happening; Anja Jelovšek, who points out contemporary and critically oriented poetics of fine arts; Aprilija Lužar, who directs her artistic expression into formal differences and stylistic diversity, while focusing the content on the position of women in society and their sex life; Filip Vurnik, who tackles especially the topics of transgenderism, transgender body, transphobia and gender in relation to violence and his personal life story; Jasna Klančišar, who works on documentary photography projects and is especially interested in the topics of marginalised groups; Miha Satler, who looks for connections between the social environment and its impact on individuals; Neža Knez, who, by intervening in the functions and identities of various spaces, reveals their characteristics and questions their content outside the self-evident notions we have about them, while also revealing other people’s attitudes to the environments they live in.
