City Art Gallery of Ljubljana presented its 2016 programme
On Wednesday 16 December, the City Art Gallery of Ljubljana presented its 2016 programme at a press conference at the Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana (MGML). In the coming year we will see an overview exhibition of sculptures, installations, drawings and paintings of one of the most important Croatian artists, Ivan Kožarić, followed by the group exhibition "Waves in Sculpture", a photography exhibition of more than 40 authors titled "Let’s go onward! – Slovenian Photography 1990 – 2015", a group painting exhibition, and, as the year comes to its end, an overview exhibition of Frank Uwe Laysiepen – Ulay.
Soon after the start of the year, the City Art Gallery of Ljubljana begins a collaboration with Zagreb’s Museum of Contemporary Art. The two institutions will prepare an overview exhibition of sculptures, installations, drawings and paintings of Ivan Kožarić, one of Croatia’s most important artists. The gallery’s programme will continue with "Waves in Sculpture", a continuation of the gallery’s theoretical analysis of Slovenian contemporary sculpture. The group exhibition will present works by some of the most important Slovenian sculptors of all ages and gender. "Let’s go onwards! – Slovenian Photography 1990 – 2015" will be an exhibition of select works from about 40 authors that marked the last twenty-five years with their subjective poetics and alternative concepts on the functions and reach of the medium. A group painting exhibition will present painters that are not only joined by their age, but also by their similar approaches regarding questions of representation/representativeness of painting, which received new answers during the 1990s. Every year the City Art Gallery also presents an internationally renowned author whose works have yet to be presented to the Slovenian public. The year will therefore end with an exhibition of Frank Uwe Laysiepen – Ulay. The overview exhibition will focus on Ulay’s performances; from joint projects with Marina Abramović to his independent actions in performance art.
