The Soteska Cultural Quarter extends on and around Gregorčič Street in Ljubljana's centre. In its small squares and streets, this ancient quarter hides a wealth of cultural, culinary, artisanal, and tourist experiences. Visitors and inhabitants of Soteska have, for quite some time now, been researching new forms of cooperation. We want to inject fresh energy into Soteska and open it up to the citizens of Ljubljana.
On 13 February the international guidebook Ljubljana In Your Pocket City Guide announced the results of the voting for of Best of Culture in Ljubljana 2019. The voters proclaimed Jakopič Gallery as the winner in the Best Art Gallery category.
The Jakopič Gallery programme for 2019 is dedicated to the presentation of high quality Slovenian contemporary photography production and acclaimed foreign photographers.
Being one of the central MGML galleries, the Jakopič Gallery is part of the vital developments in the field of contemporary art practices in the Slovenian capital and elsewhere. Its projects cover manifold fields within the visual as well as performance and multimedia art spectre. In the past decade, the gallery has been focusing on presenting globally acclaimed photographers (Roger Ballen, Lee Miller, Josef Koudelka and other Magnum photographers, Sebastião Salgado). Additional emphasis has been on thorough and retrospective exhibitions by renowned Slovenian photographers (Marko Modic, Damjan Gale, Tihomir Pinter, et al.), featuring their extensive, often lifelong oeuvres that had previously not been treated expertly as a whole.
