57th International Painting Ex-Tempore | 27 August‒3 September 2022

Ex-tempore Piran is one of the most important art events in Slovenian Istria, recognizable for its competitive character and long tradition. It is attended by academically formed artists, young artists and lovers of painting alike, who come from Slovenia and various other, especially neighboring, countries.

The Piran Coastal Galleries would like this year's edition to be marked by the participation of young people. There is also a special Young Author Prize award in the form of a personal exhibition at the Herman Pečarič Gallery in Piran.

An international expert jury consisting of Riccardo Caldura, director of the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice (Italy), Vadim Fiškin, artist, scientist, guest professor at Kunstuniversität Linz (2006-2007) and professor at Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design from 2012 to 2018 (Slovenia), and Jerica Ziherl, art historian and director/curator at the Lapidarium Museum in Novigrad (Croatia) will select paintings for the exhibition at the Piran City Gallery and the Monfort Gallery in Portorož, and award other alluring prizes, including a series of redemption awards and the highest prize of Ex-tempore, the grand prix.

The award ceremony at the end of the cultural program will take place on Saturday, September 3, 2022, at 8.30 pm on Tartini Square in Piran.
