Visual arts residency
The 2-month residency programme was conceived by Alenka Gregorič, the artistic director of the City Art Gallery Ljubljana, and is dedicated to international artists. They are offered a stipend, a flat, and a working space within the Tobačna 001 Cultural Centre premises. The residential programme is flexible as it allows the artists to decide whether to engage with the local community or concentrate on their own research and artistic work.
The list of artists-in-residence since April 2011 includes: Dušica Dražić, Katarina Zdjelar, Justyna Koeke, Alban Muja, James Powderly & Eun-Jung Son, Ed Atkins, Efrat Vital, Vahram Aghsyan, Ibro Hasanović, Nemanja Cvijanović, Avi Pitchon, Maria Papadomanolaki, Anna Friz, Qëndresë Deda and Ovidiu Anton.
The brand new gallery opened in March 2011 with an exhibition by Jan Fabre (partly on display also at the City Art Gallery Ljubljana), focusing on his drawings and photographs of the performances by Helmut Newton and Robert Mapplethorpe. The exhibitions accompanied the 17th Exodos Festival, curated by Jan Fabre.
The next exhibition accompanied the Delak Institute's ongoing project dealing with the Slovene historical avant-garde and its inclusion in the official national art history. The exhibition presented the original documents and publications from an Italian private collection and a reprint of the January 1929 issue of the German magazine Der Sturm, entirely dedicated to the "Junge Slowenische Kunst", the Slovene avant-garde artists such as (Ferdo Delak, Avgust Černigoj, Ivan Čargo, Anton Podbevšek, Srečko Kosovel, Marij Kogoj, Slavko Osterc, and Ivo Spinčič.
The Gallery 001, however, also regularly showcases the work by the artists in the Tobačna 001 Cultural Centre residencies.
