Past Events


GalerijaGallery is a small gallery space set in the Šiška Cultural Quarter in Ljubljana. It was established by the artists Viktor Bernik, Žiga Kariž and Jara Vogrič in 2016, and is run under the auspices of the "Made in China" project. Its programming policy centres around different and uncompromising inquiries into contemporary art taken by either local or foreign artists.

GalerijaGallery is also selling artworks, especially the so-called "artist's multiples", an endeavour pursued by Made in China. In line with the latter's creed, the gallery's promotional strategies tend to follow unorthodox ways of inviting visitors.

Exhibitions

The first exhibition ever to take place in the GalerijaGallery was a project by the Berlin based artists Benedikt Terwiel, titled "Last of the lands and the first" and accompanied by a presentation of his artist's book "Measuring a location in units of time". The latter was done in collaboration with the International Centre of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana.

This was followed by an exhibition of works by the Serbian arts collective U10, with the gallery presenting the works by Sava Knežević, Iva Kuzmanović and Marija Šević.

Institutional and international cooperation

The U10 collective exhibition was produced together with the Vodnik Homestead, which hosted another set of works by U10 artists. Besides preparing a shared exhibition and thus kick-starting the Šiška Gallery Quarter network, the galleries also organised a reciprocal presentation of Slovene artists in Belgrade. It happened at the U10 Gallery, where Jože Barši, Alen Ožbolt and the Veli & Amos tandem presented the Made in China project.

Made in China

Made in China is an initiative featuring around 30 well established artists (among them Vuk Ćosić, Vadim Fiškin, Janez Janša (all three of them), Sašo Sedlaček and son:DA) who try to establish a specific connection with the audiences by producing "artist's multiples". These were conceptualised back in the 1960s as series of identical art objects, produced or commissioned by the artist and made specifically for selling. They usually come as a signed limited edition, but nevertheless sold for a very small price.
