14.9. – 5.10.2017

You are kindly invited to the guied tour of the show on Wednesday, 27th September, and the artist talk on Thursday, 5th October at 6 pm.

“If art is one of the activities of materialisation of thought, it implies complete, confined articulations in form. For Petercol, materialisation of thought is always the starting point for a situation in which the artist’s role is a unique control of matter. This control is in fact self-control, for Petercol does not create ex nihilo, but rather takes as his starting point objects and processes of “neutral”, non-expressive value, which he introduces into the field of art. Control of the situation in fact means control of one’s own input, one’s own contribution. This asceticism is visible immediately: lines, points, simple geometrical shapes (projections of light or objects) are in fact the only building blocks of hierarchical rows. Similar (formal) simplicity characterises row as a mathematical principle. And yet, we find ourselves in front of installations, where despite the recognition of this simplicity our experience hits the wall. What stops us? And how can we circumvent this?”

Discussion

Thursday, 6 July, at 18.30, Škuc Gallery

Discussion on the basic ideas, rhizomatic structure, process of work, development of the exhibition, as well as all the dilemmas and decisions taken during the organisation of the 32nd Biennial of Graphic Arts at the exhibition THIS IS NOT A NAME at the ŠKUC Gallery. The exhibition offers a condensed insight into the making of this year’s experimental format of the Biennial and, along with the presented works, attempts to awaken thinking and pondering, doubts and concerns, and to provide a different view of the Biennial’s main exhibition and its emergence in the light of the central endeavour of this year’s Biennial edition: searching for new ways of conceiving exhibitions. The debate will involve Miklavž Komelj, Yasmín Martín Vodopivec, Vladimir Vidmar and Nevenka Šivavec, members of the Biennial collective , and the curators of the exhibition THIS IS NOT A NAME. The discussion will be moderated by Miha Colner.

The exhibition is a coproduction between Škuc Gallery and the International Centre for Graphic Arts, and part of the 32rd Biennial of Graphic Arts.

ALTERNATIVE FILM SCENE IN ŠKUCU IN THE EIGHTIES

ALTERNATIVE FILM SCENE IN ŠKUCU IN THE EIGHTIES

Film production, international film programme (screenings, talks), and the exhibition and distribution of domestic film production (in Yugoslavia and internationally)

You are cordially invited to the introductory presentation and screening of short films produced by ŠKUC, OM and Viba film on Monday, 15 May, at 7 pm in Škuc Gallery.

Barbara Borčić will introduce the functioning of ŠKUC film editorial office, whose multimedia dimension extended beyond the narrow understanding of film as a creative and theoretical practice. Some documents from its archive – for instance, the programme booklets and the regular column “ŠKUC Showcase” (“Škucova vitrine”) in the Ekran journal, will be exhibited. We are also preparing a special exhibition of ŠKUC’s film posters from Davorin Marc’s archive. This will be an important event also because documentation about these important activities has not been collected and it is not preserved, while the majority of films produced by ŠKUC are neither available nor included in the Film Archive. Most importantly, we are going to see some less know, but all the more interesting films.

The event is part of the exhibition The Eighties – Multimedia Practices and Production Sites (Osemdeseta – Večmedijske prakse in produkcijska prizorišča). http://www.mg-lj.si/en/exhibitions/1980/multimedia-practices-and-venues-of-production/

Conference

1 and 2 March 2017

At the beginning of March, at the invitation of the American University of Beirut (AUB), the former and the current artistic directors of Škuc Gallery Vladimir Vidmar and Tevž Logar attended an exhibition and a conference entitled Contemporary Artistic Revolutions: An Institutional Perspective. In Lebanon, Vidmar and Logar presented a study of Janja Žvegelj’s project Squash as a symptomatic interrogation of the transition of art into the paradigm of contemporaneity. In 1998, Žvegelj performed a project called Squash at Škuc Gallery, in which she thematised the newly established institutional relations and relations of production that characterise contemporary art. With Gregor Podnar, Škuc Gallery’s artistic director at the time, Žvegelj played a tournament of squash in the gallery. Read more…
