Ljubljana Biennale of Graphic Arts

Sept 15 - Jan 14

Artists and collectives from Africa, Europe and beyond, working in print, film, installation, and performance will present new and site-specific commissions alongside existing works at the 35th Ljubljana Biennale of Graphic Arts.

They have been invited by artistic director Ibrahim Mahama and his curatorial collaborators: Exit Frame Collective, Alicia Knock, Selom Koffi Kudjie, Inga Lāce, Beya Othmani and Patrick Nii Okanta.

The theme of the event, From the Void Came Gifts of the Cosmos, explores the ecosystem of friendships, solidarities, and unearthed histories of resistance between post-independence Ghana and the former Yugoslavia.

Harnessing connections between contemporary art and printmaking within fields such as architecture, design, agriculture, botany and medicine, the biennale will reflect on the dissemination of broader visual culture to form spaces of potentiality, portals between localities that transcended borders.

The biennial will be held at the International Centre of Graphic Arts and several other venues. For more details click here.
