JOŽE | GROUP EXHIBITION PROJECT OF THE DOBRAVAGA GALLERY
The collaboration of two unique projects, the DobraVaga Gallery and Plečnik House, presents fresh artwork by artists of the younger generation who are active on the local and international scenes. The main initiative for such cooperation is the location of DobraVaga beneath Plečnik’s arcades at Ljubljana’s Central Market, and the resulting link to Plečnik’s architectural heritage. The idea to feature contemporary authors in the historic home of Jože Plečnik is thus a tribute to the Slovenian architect, at the same time offering a new look at him, his work and his life. Titled JOŽE, the exhibition emphasises a personal note, as the authors present their own artistic interpretation of the architect through their art print. The participating artists are Eva Mlinar, Gašper Kunšič, Jure Brglez, Lealudvik, Matija Medved, Nastja Mezek, Nevena Aleksovski, Nina Mršnik and Peter Ferlan.
Saturday, 8 July 2017, 11am to 1pm, DobraVaga (until September 2017)

ARTIST PER MONTH Nastja Mezek: Swipe the Screen
In July, the DobraVaga gallery will feature artist Nastja Mezek, who is concluding her Master’s studies in Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design. Her latest work in mixed media is characterised by overlapping images that trigger an inability to concentrate in the viewer – just like the images that we consume daily via digital media, so quickly that they blend into a single one.
