Invader, Prints on Paper

Date: 3. 12. 2020–28. 2.2021
Location: Grad Tivoli
Author: Invader
Curator: Božidar Zrinski

With uncompromising activity, creative enthusiasm, and commitment to the ethical principles of street art, Invader has for more than 20 years been instrumental in making street art an increasingly important part of contemporary art. Invader is an artist, an individual, a movement, an app, a game, and a lifestyle. He is a street art phenomenon who, since first presenting his work at MGLC in 2006, has become a global star in the art world. Now, 15 years later, he returns to Ljubljana. This exhibition will bring together for the first time his publications, maps of invasions, and nearly one hundred original screen prints, lithographs, woodcuts, and other graphic works. Accompanied by an extensive catalogue of the artist’s prints, the exhibition will also include a print made especially for the Ljubljana show.

The exhibition stems from a series of short phone animations produced by Leon Zuodar on a Samsung GT-C3350 called The Noodle during the period of 2014–2015, in the run-up to the flood of smartphones and social networks. He posted his interactive ha-ha-haiku animations on a YouTube channel. These were sent to a select audience on the artist’s mailing list via e-mail. The e-mails with the short animations arrived with the caption, “A noodle a day keeps the doctor away”, a short, parsimonious dose of morning humour. This is a two-part exhibition. It presents the story of telephone animations from the period of 2014–2015 and their adaptation to a gallery space employing various graphic techniques.

The Kitch’n Megazine FOR SCHOOL KIDS

In March, when quarantine began because of the COVID-19 virus, MGLC issued a public call for submissions to schools to participate in the campaign Kitch’n Megazine for School Kids. Aware of the fact that difficult living conditions have never been an obstacle to creativity and that such a moment can also be an opportunity for the collective spirit and art, we invited primary, secondary and grammar schools throughout Slovenia to create an art zine. The invitation applied to the class as a whole, but the participation of individuals also counted.

We upgraded the popular creative concept of do it yourself to do it together. Participants submitted their contributions as files of pdf or jpg format and A4 size. Each participating class (or individual) received one copy of the publication, three of which are stored in the MGLC archive. All those who have joined the campaign are also entitled to a free ticket to visit MGLC in the 2020/2021 school year.

16 schools and 47 classes responded to the call and a total of 368 contributions were made.
