The Card of Cankarjev dom
In compliance with the restrictive measures taken by the Government of RS to limit the second wave of the Coronavirus pandemic, Cankarjev dom has cancelled or rescheduled all events. All exhibitions are temporarily closed.
The Slovenian Independent Illustrators' Biennial – The Independent Biennial is proud to present its first international selection. The selection was made via an open call and by sifting through the visual production of the countries that made up the former Yugoslavia.
With this landmark exhibition – presenting a selection of mostly young representatives of the international illustration scene – the Independent Biennial strives towards internationalization and integration beyond Slovenian borders. The exceptional visual output of this geographic area still lacks proper exposure, overview and recognition, as well as national and international presentation. That is why mapping, archiving and promoting the contexts of contemporary illustration – as a living matter that responds to current trends and actualities – is all the more important.
The exhibition seeks to flare a spark of interest in both the local and foreign public – a following that we build continuously through our activities. The exhibition of digital prints by fifty (++) artists from Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia... features interviews with selected individuals presenting their thoughts, dreams and attitudes towards creative environments, their art and perception of our tumultuous world.
