The main lobby of the Jožef Stefan Institute, the largest public research institute in Slovenia, functions as a public gallery where each month a new exhibition is presented. Jožef Stefan Institute Gallery is booked one year in advance and displays mainly solo exhibitions of Slovene artists of different generations.
The programme is coordinated by the Jožef Stefan Institute but some exhibitions are curated by guest curators, such as Tatjana Pregl Kobe or Nadja Gnamuš, who in 2009 curated the exhibition Construction of the Real and the Virtual [Konstrukcija realnega in virtulnega] featuring artists such as Beti Bricelj, Jasmina Cibic, Uršula Berlot, Bogoslav Kalaš, and Postgravity Art.
The highlight of the annual programme is tuned with the "Jožef Stefan Days", the most prestigious event at the Jožef Stefan Institute.
