The International Centre of Graphic Arts has been engaged in publishing ever since its first exhibition in 1989 and issues a range of publications, catalogues, monographs and pamphlets. The publications accompany the solo, group as well as visiting exhibitions featured in the MGLC programme. Every two years a more extensive catalogue is published on the occasion of the International Biennial of Arts. MGLC stores and cares for, but also sells, all the catalogues from the very first International Biennial of Graphic Arts in 1955.
Samuel Grajfoner: The Material Presence of the Mental Imprint
21. 1.–8. 3. 2022
MGLC - Tivoli Mansion
The exhibition presents large-format prints in the techniques of engraving and drypoint, created in recent years and mostly presented to the public for the first time. They reflect the artist's understanding of the creative process as a spontaneous, organic development of the preparation of the matrix, which materialises in an impression on paper or, for the first time, in bronze.

Adrijan Praznik: --WHERE OUR HEARTS HAVE LED US…
7. 1.−13. 2. 2022
Adrijan Praznik plays various roles in the world of art – he is a painter, illustrator, curator, producer and artistic director of Simulaker Gallery in Novo mesto. In January 2022, he completed a two-year artist residency at MGLC Švicarija. Upon his departure, he prepared the exhibition --WHERE OUR HEARTS HAVE LED US... The spatial installation of two large-scale paintings raises questions that illustrate his work and research focus in 2021 particularly. Namely, he is concerned with the form and status of the artwork, the appropriation of the media image and the combination of pictorial means of expression as well as materials.
