The Present and Presence

Yuri Albert, Letters to Brother Theo, 1992-1994, photo: Dejan Habicht, Matija Pavlovec (© Moderna galerija, Ljubljana)

Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova, Maistrova 3, Ljubljana
A selection of works from the Arteast 2000+ Collection and the national collection of Moderna galerija


The 20th Century / Continuities and Ruptures exhibition breaks with traditional linearity by introducing the topics of the 20th century avant-gardes and of the art of the Partisan resistance, bringing them into the national history of art on an equal footing with more familiar trends and, as a consequence, casting new light on the latter.
