The Print Studios

The MGLC Print Studios are organized as a production centre, offering artists the opportunity to print in a variety of printmaking techniques. They are able to make their prints themselves or can be assisted by the masters of the craft.

In their early years, the Print Studios’ primary job was the preservation and protection of cultural heritage. During this period the reprints of works by Janez Bernik, Andrej Jemec, Veno Pilon, Riko Debenjak, Bogdan Borčić, Karel Zelenko and Marijan Tršar were produced. Later, the production in the Print Studios focused on using certain classic printmaking techniques like intaglio printing, lithography and silkscreen. But the Studios were always conceived to function as a research laboratory, where local and foreign artists can explore their visual ideas as well as further their knowledge and skills.

As a production centre, MGLC offers various ways of participation. For the production of original art prints, the board of experts selects projects every year to be financed and produced in the MGLC Print Studios. Artists may apply personally by the end of the calendar year, however, MGLC may put out a call for submissions if required, or alternately make a direct invitation to a certain artist to engage in the production of a project. 

In the case of co-productions, MGLC takes care of technical and spatial requirements, and the projects are selected on the basis of artists’ proposals. In both cases, production or co-production, MGLC receives two copies of the graphic print for its permanent collection. The MGLC Print Studios are also available to hire.
MGLC offers free use of their print studios at the headquarters of MGLC to students and educators of ALUO for educational purposes.

WE WISH YOU GOOD MORNING AT MULTIVISION!

As part of the Multivision project (www.multivizija.si), which explores the diversity of identities through multimedia creation, we are organising relaxed morning conversations with interesting dialogue partners to talk about identities, otherness as an experience of social exclusion, and socially engaged creation in response to the social challenges of contemporary society.

We invite you to join us for relaxed morning conversations with three interesting women over tea or coffee at Švicarja in Tivoli, in the inspiring ambience of the Batič Sculpture Studio, from 10.30 to 11.00.

On 7 August 2019, with singer-songwriter, researcher, mentor and publicist Katarina Juvančič, who will take us through the musical creation of stories about women.

On 21 August 2019, with researcher and scientist Mirjam Milharčič Hladnik, PhD, who will introduce us to the concept of assembled identities.

On 4 September 2019, with writer, researcher and scientist Svetlana Slapšak, PhD, who will take us into the interweavings of science and art that talk about women, identities and love.
