Visit us

Visit one of MGML's main gallery venues, an integral part of contemporary artistic practices in Slovenia's capital and its surroundings. In the Jakopič Gallery in mid-January, we are announcing the opening of the exhibition "On the Other Side. Slovenian photoreportage". The scientific and exhibition project approaches reportage photography from the perspective of themes (through the main categories of EVERYDAY, IDENTITY, POWER), and use them to present the evolvement, impulses for the emergence of certain practices, and specific aspects that have marked this genre in Slovenia. The programme will continue with a retrospective exhibition by Roger Ballen, one of the most important photographers of today. "The World According to Roger Ballen" is hitherto the photographer’s largest exhibition, produced by the Parisian gallery Halle Saint-Pierre. At the exhibition, created in dialogue with the author and specifically curated for our gallery, visitors will be able to experience Ballen’s visualisation of worlds situated between dreams and reality. The programme in 2021 will conclude with "Meltdown. A Visualization of Climate Change" exhibition. The exhibition is a narrative of the importance of glaciers told in a scientific, illustrative, and poetic way and each artist has a unique take on the subject.
