In July at MGLC and the Švicarija Creative Centre

We have taken care to pamper the body and spirit in the city park this year too, given that the Summer in Tivoli traditionally fills the warm and carefree summer evenings with a rich array of cultural events. The Summer in Tivoli programme is woven between Tivoli Mansion and the Švicarija Creative Centre, where you can enjoy music by singer-songwriters and music evenings of electronic and hybrid music, art events and guided tours, as well as a cycle of films, whose leitmotif is the creation of bridges between individuals and the community, as well as community, art and nature.

The story tells about travelling actors who move from city to city. The plot narrates the imminent birth of a child and the return of a former lover, opening up old wounds that were thought to be forgotten.

In July, the Sundays in Ljubljana are a little bit different. In the evening we meet up at the forest border of the city, in the legendary Švicarija. First, we make a toast, symbolically reinforcing the group spirit, and then we abandon ourselves to an outdoor film screening. Each film is special, in keeping with the energy of this magical space. Followed by a social digestive. Captivated by art, we focus on satisfying our basic human needs; the need for food, drink, safety, company and love.
Selection: Jan Cvitkovič, film director.

Admission to the David Lynch exhibition: 5 EUR/2.50 EUR. The exhibition STOP AND GO – The  Art of Animated GIFs, public guided tour of the exhibition Švicarija: Community, Art and Nature, concerts, performance and films are free of charge.

ANNOUNCING A NEW EXHIBITION

Nataša Berk: 1st Unlimited Edition

2. 4.–19. 5. 2019

Opening:
2 April, at 7 pm
Švicarija

The exhibition is part of the year-long programme of Švicarija, which in 2019 focuses on the analysis of the state of independent journalism and the right of the public to information in pursuit of the slogan community, art and nature. The participating artists question the credibility of images and their meanings at a time of the oversaturation with visual impulses and analyse the ambiguity of media messages on the world wide web.

The spatial intervention by Nataša Berk and the group of artists at Švicarija presents their diverse visual production, which usually takes place in the virtual space of the world wide web and social networks. On this occasion, it has moved into a physical space. Together, they explore the phenomenology of the image within public circulation and its impact on the perception of reality. In ironic ways, they address the norms of the advertising industry, the tendencies of the mass media, voyeurism and the social convention of the individual’s appearance. Thus, works devoted to the consideration of the nature of the image in everyday life are presented as part of the exhibition. In such a way, photographs, videos and collages open up the questions of understanding visual culture in an era when the public space has become saturated with contents and images, questions about the manipulation of the image and the ambivalence of its meanings.    

Curator: Miha Colner

Opening of the exhibition

Photographic Images and Matter: Japanese Prints of the 1970s and
Japan, Yugoslavia and the Biennial of Graphic Arts: Documents of Collaboration

TODAY

opening:
Friday, March 22, at 6 pm

22. 3.–19. 5. 2019

The exhibition is made up of two sections. The first, bearing the title Photographic Images and Matter: Japanese Prints of the 1970s, is dedicated to Japanese printmaking of the 1970s and was organised by the Japan Foundation, while the second, the documentary section, is entitled Japan, Yugoslavia and the Biennial of Graphic Arts: Documents of Collaboration and has been prepared by the International Centre of Graphic Arts.

The travelling exhibition Photographic Images and Matter, with a selection of the most representative artists, presents the orientations within Japanese printmaking of the 1970s, which was the golden age of the print medium in Japan. The curator of the exhibition Kyoji Takizawa has made an attractive selection of artists, who have received many awards within the international arena and form the core of the modernist and avant-garde scene of the 1970s.

The documentary exhibition Japan, Yugoslavia and the Biennial of Graphic Arts: Documents of Collaboration, on the other hand, illuminates one of the many socio-artistic chapters tied to the history of the Biennial of Graphic Arts in Ljubljana. Through the selection of pictorial, archival, photographic and other material, it aims to show the communication between the geographically and politically disparate countries as part of an ambitious international art event like the Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts. Exhibition authors are Nevenka Šivavec and Gregor Dražil.

The exhibition is accompanied by an international symposium under the same title, taking place in the month of May.

Exhibition design: Ivian Kan Mujezinović and Mina Fina.
