The Slovenia Times

Hundred Years of Slovenian Art on Display in Culture Capital


The exhibition dubbed "Almost Spring" will be on display from Friday until 24 February 2013 at the gallery and the recently renovated Slavia hotel in the city centre. Works by 138 artists and art collectives from the collections of almost two dozens Slovenian museums and galleries will be presented at the exhibition.

Visitors will get acquainted with the Slovenian art chronologically, from the Impressionists to the end of the 20th century.

Among the highlights are the pieces from the Ljubljana Modern Gallery painted by big names such as Marij Pregelj (1913-1967), considered one of the key figures in Slovene painting in the second half of the 20th century, Gabrijel Stupica (1913-1990) and Zoran Mušič (1909-2005).

Other collections feature all the excellent representatives of the Slovenian art such as the National Gallery's Impressionists Rihard Jakopič (1869-1943), Matija Jama (1872-1947) and Ivan Grohar (1867-1911).

Coastal galleries present the art of the 1980s, the Miklova hiša gallery from the southern town of Ribnica sculpture from the end of the century and the Ljubljana Academy for Art and Design the works by its professors.

A selection of 30 most prominent representatives of contemporary visual art, including Vadim Fiškin, Nika Špan, Nataša Prosenc and Jasmina Cibic, will be on show at the once famous Slavia hotel.
