Spekula 2020 – 2° edition: Translations of visionaries or illusions |
Meduza Gallery, Koper |
11th of September 2020 – 9th of October 2020 |
Curator of the exhibition: Tilen
After the successful conclusion of the new undergraduate program of Visual Arts and Design at the Littoral University, the second edition of the artistic event SPEKULA 2020 is starting in September.
The event is aimed at raising awareness in the local community and developing a new undergraduate program in Visual Arts and Design, which will enrich the coastal area in the academic year 2021/2022. The accompanying program of the event offers an insight into the profession to future students and to the public that wants to develop creative, artistic and production skills for an independent and successful growth.
Piran Coastal Galleries, the Avtomatik Delovišče platform and the Pina Cultural Association will also contribute to the implementation of this project. The event will start on September 11th at 6 pm in the Meduza Gallery of Koper with the inauguration of the exhibition.
The exhibition Translations of Visionary Art or Illusion focuses on the appearance and manifestation of the contemporary art code and its orientation towards recodification. The visions, which are given by the authors to their own artistic and socially engaged works, presuppose rumours and orientations of a universal language of images, staged in the form of contemplation and introspection.
The authors on display are Nemanja Cvijanovič (Croatia), Polonca Lovšin (Slovenia), Dragana Sapanjoš (Croatia) and Jiri Kocica (Slovenia).
