Archival article

The KUD France Prešeren Gallery is the exhibiting space of KUD France Prešeren Arts and Culture Association. It hosts a wide range of contemporary art exhibitions such as: experimental photography and photojournalism, sculpture, painting, comics, and recently also multimedia and computer graphic projects. Occasionally it features also fashion and design projects. The gallery does not have a classic curatorial approach. The programme is selected of projects arriving on an annual call for entries which is usually published in August or September.


Located in the pub area of the cultural centre, the KUD France Prešeren Gallery offers annually some 25 exhibitions of promising artists (mostly Slovene) such as Saša Kerkoš and Mina Fina with their experimental strip project, photographer Helena Goznikar, Katja Tukiainen, German photographer Werner Schuster to name just some artist exhibiting recently. The gallery also features group and documentary exhibitions such as Between Communism or the Empire - From the Red Ray to the Great Carrion [Gledališče Ane Monró med komunizmom ali cesarstvom - Od Rdečega žarka do Velikega mrhovinarja] dedicated to Ana Monró Theatre, or the commercial exhibition of the lip-balsam "Labello", marking its 100th anniversary.
