The 13th Slovenian Biennial of Illustration, on display at the CD Gallery, will close at 16.00 on 7 May due to the presentation of the Transgeneration Awards. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
A central overview of Slovenian illustration, the Biennial unites older and younger generations of illustrators employing diverse artistic methods and rewards their finest achievements with the Hinko Smrekar Award, as well as the Smrekar distinctions and accolades. Maintaining high standards of creativity and testifying to the excellence of Slovenian illustration, the event showcases the latest artistic methods and techniques employed in illustration: re-imagined painting techniques, illustration incorporating elements of film, comic strip, animated film, electronic media and other advanced technologies.
The show thus provides an invaluable platform for recognising the importance of illustration, an artform decisively co-shaping – in its major children’s book segment – the visual perception and understanding of young readers, and having a responsible role in education – as a pictorial language co-creating human consciousness and crucially influencing mental development.
Jury members selecting the artists and awarding prizes include:
Monika Ivančič Fajfar, Sarival Sosič, PhD, Radovan Jenko, Peter Škerl, Nina Pirnat Spahić
