The core visual story of the exhibition project Ripples: A Visual Diary of Water is narrated by cutting-edge water-themed photographs from the archives of the Dutch photography agency NOOR Images. The project is based on a re-questioning of gallery settings practice whether expensive frames, large formats and high-end display equipment really make the photographs and the exhibition more meaningful. Over 15 years of activity in Jakopič Gallery we have accumulated a lot of materials, which were up-cycled through the co-creative process. The concept and the experience of the exhibition it is also supported with soundscapes.
Susan Meiselas is a documentary photographer based in New York and a member of Magnum Photos since 1976. She creates works that raises provocative questions about documentary practice and the relationship between the photographer and the subject. The exhibition Mediations highlights her unique working method, which combines photography, video, sound and installation to explore different time scales and conflicts, from the personal to the geopolitical.
In cooperation with the City Museum of Ljubljana, we will organise an exhibition on Slovenian women artists in the period 1850-1950. The aim of the two-part exhibition is to present female artists in Ljubljana who presented themselves to the public during the selected period and who, despite the social conventions of the time, established themselves in the public space. The museum will focus on women painters and sculptors, while the gallery will focus on women architects, designers and photographers.
