The Gallery of Mostovna Cultural Centre, known as TIR, is located in a renovated former industrial building on the outskirts of Nova Gorica. The gallery, founded in 2006, predominantly focuses on presenting young and upcoming artists, both those who work in traditional media and those who indulge in modern, technologically-based art forms. The programme of the gallery is based on an open international call for exhibition projects, which is announced annually in the summer.

Besides hosting numerous upcoming local artists, the gallery actively collaborates with institutions like School of Arts, University of Nova Gorica or the Academy of Fine Arts and Design and regularly exhibits artists from abroad. As Nova Gorica and thus TIR are located near the border with Italy, cooperation with Italian artists, institutions and audiences is a very common practice.

The exhibitions are often accompanied by music performances or poetry readings, and the gallery is sometimes also used for various other performances and events.


Of the artists (photographers, painters, sculptors, multimedia producers, etc.) who have presented their works at TIR, one can randomly name Uroš Weinberger, Tomaž Šantl, Urban Kravos, Nina Bric, Nežka Zamar, Maja Poljanc, Aljoša Kravanja, Tinka Volarič, Enej Gala, Lučka Šparovec, Tea Curk Sorta, and Jan Outrata. Their primary common ground is that they belong to the younger creative generation.

Some of the Italian artists on display include Franco Pinna, Roberta Buschian, Alice Pizzinato and Roberta Battiston, but there have also been a number of collective shows by artists from both sides of the border. One of them, for example, was a photography project on the unitary urban space of Gorizia and Nova Gorica. It was called Open Perspectives and was done as an international joint project by TIR - Mostovna Gallery, Društvo humanistov Goriške, I Cormanuti, Mittelpoint, and A.P.S. LAB – centro promozione benessere. One can as well mention a survey exhibition of Serbian graphic arts in the 1990s, which was presented by Miloš Đorđević.

Sometimes, the Pixxelpoint International Festival of Computer Art partly takes place at TIR. In 2011, for example, Gülsen Bal (Turkey, UK, Austria: Open Space – Zentrum für Kunstprojekte) and BridA curated the show.


The venue is about 100 sq. metres and incorporates about 50 linear metres of wall space. The gallery has basic installation equipment like panels, hanging rods, halogen lighting system, and the good old hammer-and-nail installation system. The gallery is supplemented with a small stage, which can serve many purposes.
