Avla NLB Gallery was established in 1971 in the entrance hall of the headquarters of the largest Slovene bank – Nova Ljubljanska Banka (NLB), in the city centre of Ljubljana, close to the Cankarjev dom Culture and Congress Centre. The NLB has purchased thousands of high-quality art works which now form the Nova Ljubljanska banka (NLB) Art Collection, established in 1999.


In addition to presenting works from the NLB art collection (curated by Stane Bernik), the gallery presents temporary exhibitions of current works in the field of visual communication, covering graphic design, illustration, and photography. These temporary exhibitions have been organised for several years by Emzin Institute of Creative Production. Recent international exhibitions since 2005 have included Polish Film Posters, Images of Jazz on Polish Posters and an exhibition of photography, paintings and illustrations of the Winter&Winter Publishing House. Recent photography exhibitions have presented the Milčo Mančevski exhibit The Street, and the photographs of Tošo Dabac and Franco Pinna; illustration exhibitions have shown the work of Radovan Jenko, Jugoslav Vlahović, Luba Lukova, and ZEK Crew; and design exhibitions have presented a whole range of eminent authors and groups, including Luc(as) de Groot, Philippe Apeloig, Seymour Chwast, Paula Scher, April Greiman, Studio Najbrt, Niklaus Troxler, Piter Bankov and studio DesignDepot and Leonardo Sonnoli. The gallery cooperates regularly with organisations and artists in the USA, France, the Netherlands, Poland, and Italy.
