9TH TRIENNIAL OF CONTEMPORARY ART U3 | Dead and Alive

10 October 2019 — 12 January 2020
What is the avant-garde in Slovenia concerned with today? The question sounds simple, almost banal, but it brings two subjects back into the realm of debate – the existence of the avant-garde and contemporaneity. First of all, let’s ask whether the avant-garde in Slovenia is alive or dead. What the curator has found in his field research is that it is both – it is alive and dead at the same time.

11 May 2019 — 24 November 2019
At the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, Peljhan will present a new work from his Resolution series. This series, which has evolved over some 20 years, proposes some specific material and applicable solutions to certain problems in society. It is the artist’s response to the state in which the world finds itself today, calling for a rediscovery of space and of the place, the physical location of an individual, and a utopian response to the rapid changes in the environment.
