Dear visitors, Jakopič Gallery remains open. Welcome to our community, even with some distance!
In cooperation with the Social Communication Research Centre of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Membrana Institute for Research, Education and Cultural Activities, and the National Museum of Contemporary History the Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana is developing a theoretical and exhibition project on Slovenian press photography.
On Tuesday, 17 March 2020 in the Jakopič Gallery we virtually opened the exhibition of contemporary Indonesian engaged photography.
After a year of enthusiasm, hard work and international cooperation, we are proud to see the exhibition Vision 20/20: Community – Contemporary Indonesian Engaged Photography finalised and ready for our visitors. However, all public events in Slovenia have been cancelled until further notice, following Slovenian government regulations to combat the spread of COVID-19.
We are pleased to report that the VISION 20/20 exhibition on contemporary Indonesian photography is shaping up nicely. For the last two days the curators Marija Skočir (Jakopič Gallery-Slovenia), Ng Swan Ti (PannaFoto Institute-Indonesia) and Saša Kralj (Živi Atelje DK-Croatia) have been working intensively with the photographers of all the selected projects to be presented in Jakopič Gallery from 17 March to 31 May 2020.
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.
