In collaboration with the renowned Italian art critic and independent curator Antonio Grulli, we will present a group exhibition of the younger generation of contemporary artists and the new schools of Italian painting that have emerged from the recent gatherings of painting communities across Italy.
The sixth in a series of exhibitions under the title "Ljubljana Bows to Slovenia", which aims to link Ljubljana with current regional artistic initiatives and groups, will present the peculiarities of the Prekmurje artistic environment.
Leone Contini’s research, on the edge between ethnography and art, is focused on intercultural frictions, conflict and power relations. His mediums include Installations, lecture-performances, interventions in public space, writing, drawing and audio-visual narratives.
The programme in 2021 begins with an exhibition focusing on the topics of newspaper photography archives. We will present the Romanian Minerva Archive and creatively show a historical archive as an example of good practice and a commentary through the contemporary works of various artists from Cluj and Bucharest.
The programme in 2020 will begin with the fourth exhibition in the series "Ljubljana Bows to Slovenia", linking Ljubljana with topical regional art initiatives and collectives – this time with Klagenfurt.
Public and gallery spaces in the city centre until the 15th of June are taken over by the Ljubljana festival of light once again.
The Match Gallery, as its name tells us, is a space for fiery new ideas. It is a venue dedicated to projects from all sorts of contemporary artistic practices; performance, visual arts, audio-visual, and other. Within this smaller and extremely flexible venue in the very centre of Ljubljana we are stimulating varying reactions of culture and art in the context of urban culture, while we are also contributing to the definition of this phenomenon. Match Gallery is a laboratory of new ideas, creative formulas and inventive approaches towards quality art production.
