Run by the Ljubljana Fine Artists Society (acronymed as DLUL), the DLUL Gallery is an exhibition space for various strands of contemporary visual arts. Newly acquired by the society in 2014, this 96 m2 gallery space is stationed on the banks of Ljubljanica river in the old city centre of Ljubljana. It most often hosts fine arts exhibitions of paintings, sculpture, graphics and photography, yet is also open for installations, performances, lectures, workshops and so on.

Complementing the already active programme of DLUL-curated exhibitions (which are still regularly taking place at other venues), the place aspires to become one of the centres for contemporary visual art in Ljubljana. Though primarily used for exhibitions by members of the society, it is often used for collaborations with various society's partners, domestic ones as well as those from abroad.


One-artist solo shows, group exhibitions and regular collective commercial exhibitions of DLUL's members (usually held in August and December and offering works for fairly low prices) regularly take place at the gallery. The diverse and densely set programme features new displays on an almost monthly basis.

Some of the artists presented at DLUL Gallery were the sculpturer Neža Jurman, the painters Taja Ivančič, the multidisciplinary artists Alenksandra Saška Gruden, Milan Ketiš and Nina Koželj, the photographers Noemi Veberič Levovnik, Arven Šakti Kralj Szomi, Uroš Abram and Marta Foldesova (SK), the collective Oloop Design and the architect Tatjana Capuder Vidmar. Some of the foreign artists presented were Paride Di Stefano (IT), Cordue (DE) and a number of Finnish artists, among them Anni Arffman, Pia Hentunen, Kaija Hinkula and Eija Hirvonen.

Amongst the many organisations that were – one way or another – involved in the gallery's programme one can mention the Photon Gallery, SCCA-Ljubljana Centre for Contemporary Arts, Biennial of Design (BIO), Gulag Institute for Contemporary Arts and Cultures, Oulun Taiteiden Yö (FI), Amüseum Gallery (DE) and Biennial of Illustration Bratislava (SK).
