The main exhibition of the 15th Lighting Guerrilla festival will take place at the Match Gallery, with several locations in the gallery's immediate vicinity and other venues across the town centre hosting other festival events.
The artist that goes by the name name: explores the graffiti subculture and the wider cultural environment through a variety of approaches by thematising the relation between legal and illegal interventions.

The fifth exhibition of the series that connects Ljubljana with current regional art initiatives and groups will present the specifics of the art environment of the Slovenian coastline.
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.
