Like its numerous European models, the Ljubljana Art Weekend initiative aims to bring together organisations and institutions, galleries, museums and project spaces dedicated to the presentation and promotion of contemporary art, thus contributing to the consolidation of the local art scene and promotion of its plurality and vitality. With a wide-ranging programme that includes presentations by local and foreign artists, we aim to lay the foundations for discussion and dialogue, while giving a diverse audience from different backgrounds the opportunity to get to know the continually growing and tireless contemporary art production.
The international magazine ETC. is designed to bring together artists, curators, writers and publishers who work in the field of contemporary art. As the magazine is focused on a different social, environmental, political issue in each publication, it is designed to be a platform for diverse voices and opinions from all over Europe, contributing to a wider understanding of a certain issue and the recontextualisation of a border-defined narrative. Today more than ever, there is a need to start a dialogue and begin open conversations. By building a network of young critical minds from completely different backgrounds, the magazine aims to do just that.
A classical mediterranean and minimalist space, designed to embrace established visual artists, far and near, to practice art – without distraction from the roving world. We hope to provide the artist a period of rest, recreation and reflection – inspired by varied aspects of life – from the waves to the stone, from past to present. Mostly, we are looking ahead with our combined paths. The vision for this new artistic initiative is simple – to nurture individual creativity and infuse it with our collective artistic production, with the gusto to explore and express.
