The exhibition Owned by artist and designer The Miha Artnak seeks to redefine our understanding of ownership and property by introducing innovative concepts of non-ownership and public-private property. Seven artworks challenge traditional views of art, exploring concepts of ownership, authorship, and authenticity using modern technology and services.

Past exhibitions

Giovanni Morbin
Giovanni MorbinHybridizactions, from 1995 to the present
28. 11. 2023–21. 1. 2024
As a tribute to Ljubljana at the Match Gallery we host a retrospective exhibition of the Italian artist and performer Giovanni Morbin named Hybridizactions, from 1995 to the present. Since the beggining Morbin's artistic research has been linked to behaviour, and for him performance is the ideal tool to express ideas. In the 1990s, Morbin was a regular guest on the Ljubljana art scene and conceived and performed four Hybridizactions in the city, which later had a significant impact on his international artistic career. Morbin also prepared a new Hybridizaction 16, Evergreen for the exhibition in Ljubljana.
Dominik Mahnič
Dominik MahničSteering the Brush
19. 9. 2023–5. 11. 2023
Dominik Mahnič, an emblematic figure nestled between the realms of academic painting, video mastery, technology, and street art insurgency, raises questions about the perpetual dialectics between classical artistry and the onslaught of contemporary technological modalities. Within this discourse emerges the Brushograph - a complex symbol not merely of art but also of the intersections between past, present, and anticipated futures.
Lighting Guerrilla: Space
Lighting Guerrilla: Space
22. 5. 2023–27. 8. 2023
The 17th edition of the international Lighting Guerrilla festival, based in and around the Match Gallery, will explore issues of space, which is also its central subject. Space, that ungraspable and infinite given, in which the totality of reality unfolds on the temporal line, raises many questions and, at the same time, a series of issues of great relevance to many aspects of contemporary life.
Ljubljana Bows to Slovenia VII: Jesenice
Ljubljana Bows to Slovenia VII: Jesenice
4. 4. 2023–7. 5. 2023
The exhibition caravan of the Ljubljana Bows to Slovenia series, which focuses on the local characteristics of specific areas, this time head to the railway town of Jesenice and its wider surroundings. The artworks on display, which originate from, are inspired by or created by artists from the area, question the idea of home, which takes on different meanings and images in this environment due to its specific geographical, cultural and historical position.
Marcel Valentini
Marcel ValentiniOriginal Forgeries
7. 2. 2023–19. 3. 2023
The exhibition will attempt to capture the figure and work of a Slovenian painter Marko Premrl which has changed its name to Marcel Valentini, and was involved, during and after studying painting in Italy, in the creation of forgeries with a certificate within the group Musée imaginaire. In addition to his creative practice, which he later carried out in Slovenia, he was probably the only forger who was involved in a criminal prosecution with a judicial epilogue in our country. Most of these cases instead end up in media scandals and leave too many open questions.
LEONE CONTINI
LEONE CONTINIConstructed Landscapes
29. 11. 2022–15. 1. 2023
Italian multimedia artist, philosopher and cultural anthropologist Leone Contini studies heritage, intercultural contacts and hierarchical power relations as consequences of transnational migration. Constructed Landscapes explores the interplay of circumstances in which the idea of an authentic Tuscan landscape in the surroundings of Prato, a town mainly known for its textile industry, meets the land cultivation practices of migrant small-scale farmers from Southeast China.
