Bojan Gorenec: How Paintings Emerge (Paintings 1979-2014)

Following the first presentation of Bojan Gorenec’s work at the Museum of Modern Art (Moderna Galerija, Ljubljana) in 1990 (entitled Painting 1982–1990), "How Paintings Emerge (1979–2014)" exhibition is one of the major artist's exhibitions; the catalogue includes a theoretical essay by the artist on the status of painting today as well as a study by Dr. Tomislav Vignjević.

The title "How Paintings Emerge" is a reference to Gorenec’s eponymous 1982 solo exhibition at the ŠKUC Gallery, alluding more generally to his early creative period when the groundwork for the subsequent evolution of his artistic output was laid in reflection on and investigation of the medium, its expressive possibilities, the specifics of painting at a time saturated with images, and the question of the emergence of an image.
