A View 8: View of Slovenian Visual Art

21. 10. 2016 – 20. 11. 2016

The biennial exhibition A Look: View of Slovenian Visual Art was primarily dedicated to the visual art in Slovenian regions of Dolenjska, Bbela Krajina and Posavje. After the past three editions with different geographic bounds, we started following the visual art production on a national scale, which was followed by extending it to Slovenian artists who live and work anywhere in the world. The aim of this shifts was the fact that the curator Barbara Rupel strove to establish a dialogue between the artists who live and work in Slovenia and the ones who live and work abroad.

The selection for A Look 8 exhibition was based on the quality and it reached, as usual, into all richness of visual expression which means that it was not only focused on works executed in the classic artistic media. In this edition we focused on the artists who temporarily or permanently reside and work abroad.

Artists: Vanja Bučan, Nina Čelhar, DK, Matej Čepin, Mitja Ficko, Elena Fajt, Enej Gala, Biba Košmerl, Arven Šakti Kralj Szomi, Pila Rusjan, Kristina Rutar, Nina Slejko Blom, Maruša Šuštar, Aleksandra Zalokar.

Curator: Barbara Rupel
