City Art Gallery of Ljubljana is exhibiting women artists who have kicked up quite a lot of dust among the general public in Slovenia
Last year, the City Art Gallery of Ljubljana hosted the provocatively titled exhibition Better Doggy Style than no Style, which displayed a selection of male painters, and now it is women artists who are wittily striking back with their own “pussy style”. The current “Prrrrrrr” exhibition is presenting artists who are only just entering the field of contemporary visual art as well as artists who have already drawn considerable attention to their work with the consistency of their approach, public appearances and accolades, including important international awards.
Some of them have, with an articulated visual vocabulary and their concentration on current topical issues, sensitive and taboo topics, caused quite a stir of unwarranted uproar in the general Slovenian public. The exhibition presents works by Suzana Brborović, Špela Čadež, Olja Grubić, Duša Jesih, Simona Semenič & Nada Žgank, Maja Smrekar.
