You are kindly invited to attend the opening of the exhibition re-, an exhibition on the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of the World of Art, School for Curatorial Practices and Critical Writing, on Tuesday, 9 May, at 8 pm in Škuc Gallery.
The World of Art School started in 1996/97, at the same time as some other formal and informal international education programmes. It was conceived as a series of lectures on contemporary art and as a course running over several months, which made it possible for the participants to conceive and under the mentorship prepare an exhibition of contemporary art. Ever since its inception, the school, the successor to the course, has been characterised by its flexibility and responsiveness to the needs of each particular generation.
The exhibition situates the material and the artworks in different temporally scattered relations while their juxtaposition is meant to encourage a consideration of their content-related and material nodes.
The prefix re-, which acts as the title of this exhibition, may originally denote a return to the past, but, at the same time, it also connotes encompassing and transforming everything that is a matter of the past into a matter of the future.
– guided tour of the exhibition on Wednesday, 24 May, at 6 pm.
Production: SCCA–Ljubljana / School for Curatorial Practices and Critical Writing
