The 28th exhibition in the series of visual poetry shows at the Bežigrad galleries in Ljubljana is dedicated to the memory of Živko Kladnik (1948–2017), one of our most important authors of visual poetry.

A characteristic of his collages is the density of scraps and cuttings from newspapers and magazines, pasted on basic surfaces or blind frames.

France Tomažič

France Tomažič First Graduate of Plečnik’s School
19. 3. 2021–27. 6. 2021

Tomažič graduated in 1924 and remained with Plečnik as an assistant until 1930, when he became independent. In 1932 he passed the Professional Competence Examination and became a certified architectural engineer, upon which he opened his own studio in Ljubljana. At first, Tomažič followed Plečnik's architectural view very closely, but with his first independent works he demonstrated a complete reversal and understanding of modern planning problems.

While also giving an overview of the different kinds of photojournalism and the ways they are used in the print and electronic media, this exhibition deliberately focuses on photoreportage, the most accomplished and expressive form of photojournalism.

Late Antique gravestone from Gosposvetska Street From Museum Treasury

From the first third of the 4th century CE to the early part of the 5th, there was a cemetery beneath present-day Gosposvetska Street, to the west of the main northern approach road to the Roman Emona. The cemetery had grown up around a structure that contained a number of graves and that had been built there in the second half of the 3rd century. The oldest of these graves, which are probably early Christian, was of a woman and contained a blue glass bowl.
