EXHIBITION Up close | Setting up - photo

Setting up the exhibition before the opening
There is no routine in the conservation-restoration of artworks, especially modern and contemporary works. In the case of modern artworks, we can still, at least partially, follow the rules of treatment that apply to older artworks, since artists like Marij Pregelj and Gabrijel Stupica still observed the rules of technique, but this is no longer the case with certain other works from the middle of the last century, and especially with contemporary works.

Curators and staff of Moderna galerija, Ljubljana, strongly condemn yesterday’s violent forcible eviction of the users of the Autonomous Factory Rog from the premises of the former factory Rog.
