Guided tour of the Pomurje exhibition
Ljubljana bows to Slovenia VI
The sixth exhibition in the series Ljubljana bows to Slovenia presents the peculiarities of the Pomurje artistic movement. The Pomurje exhibition offers a glimpse into contemporary artistic production of the last six years without any limitations regarding motive, medium or style. On Tuesday, 8 November, at 17:00, the curator Jani Pirnat will tell you more about his selection, and will be joined by the artists.
In the Pomurje region artists are culturally connected by following each other's production, but at the same time they are locally dispersed in private creative milieus, workshops, offices and studios - from both Radgons to Goričko, Murska Sobota, Ljutomer, Lendava...
People of Pomurje are characterised by the historically wind-swept Pannonian Plain, so they enter creative endeavours with a somewhat reserved prudence. Their artworks are therefore multi-layered, profound and intimately expressive.
Artists Matjaž Geder, Cvetka Hojnik, Robert Jurak, Črtomir Just, Ferenc Király, Matej Končan – Kleemar, Nataša Kos, Katja Pál, Jim Pavlica, Zdravko Pravdič and the association Društvo prekmurske pobude ONEJ, Gregor Purgaj, Mirko Rajnar and Eva Žula actually live and work in Pomurje and from there they spread their cultural impact.
