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.

Prints and Impressions 2

The exhibition is the result of a public call for submissions to Slovenian artists of all generations actively working in the field of fine art printing and printmaking. It serves as a starting point for further research into Slovenian graphic production and its involvement in the contemporary visual art practices.

An international expert jury consisting of Barbora Kundračíková (CZ), Mario Čaušić (HR) and Miloš Đorđević (RS) selected the works of 43 artists from the 114 submissions.

In from the Margins - European residency programme - at MGLC

In from the Margins programme is an art residency opportunity for migrant and refugee artists or artists who identify with experience of displacement.

The programme seeks to break down barriers and create opportunities for refugee artists and local communities to share and to learn from each other while being supported by the resources and expertise of print studios. 

As part of the project, MGLC has announced six residencies and has selected the following artists for the residencies: Qëndresë Deda, Francisco Tomsich, Maja Živko, Lina Rica, Azad Karim and Azadeh Hashemzadeh.

In April 2022 MGLC was hosting Lina Rica. The artist, who knows the challenges of moving from her own experience, was working on the topic of home. In May, we hosted Maja Živka, who researched the feelings that are projected through different living spaces. In June, Azadeh Hashemzadeh created in our Print studio, whose residency was terminated early and will continue at the end of August. You will be able to see her work in the Print Studio on August 31 between 5 and 7 p.m.
