WELCOME TO THE BIENNIAL ARCHIVE WEBSITE
The new website of the Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts has been conceived as an overview of Biennial events from 1955 to the present day. It presents one of the oldest international art events that began with the desire to show a graphic map of the world in Ljubljana. With the introduction of the curatorial approach after 2001, the limitations to a single medium were dispelled and it began to develop into a museum and out-of-museum entity reflecting contemporary art and curatorial practice. The website presents the structural features of each Biennial with lists of artists, prize winners and jurors. The artistic credo of the Biennial is brought closer through the photo galleries and descriptions of the Biennial's main exhibitions, the traditional exhibitions of the prize winners and the accompanying exhibitions. A special section is dedicated to Biennial publications. The Biennial Archive website is conceived as a growing document of a diverse segment of cultural heritage. It is upgraded with the research findings on the history of the Biennial of Graphic Arts as well as topical news to keep you informed about related current events.

Lea Culetto: On the Rag
1. 6.–31. 7. 2022
After the first year of living and working in the studio for young artists at MGLC Švicarija, Lea Culetto presents her works in which she exposes taboos and ideas about the female body and the social validation and stigmatisation associated with it.The project On teh Rag consists of simple white T-shirts with prints of the artist's menstrual stain on the back. The message is also more direct, decoded, revealed – the intimate act of menstruation passes into the public space and discourse with the imprint of menstrual blood on custom-made T-shirts.
