We are very pleased to announce the second edition of Ljubljana Art Weekend!

After the successful first edition last May, we embarked on the second edition with even more enthusiasm and optimism, thanks to the very gratifying commitment of all participating institutions, galleries, project spaces and artists, who accepted our invitation, and the extremely encouraging participation in the numerous events that we prepared with our partners.

Once again this year, the city’s broad network of city venues dedicated to contemporary art has come together to organise a varied programme of exhibition openings, roundtables, guided tours, artist talks and – as a novelty this year – also artwalks or curated tours focusing on different types of spaces. These spaces are also the theme of this year’s edition of the Art Weekend. It is a word with a myriad of meanings, keywords and associations, both figurative and literal – the two roundtables and four guided tours will address everything from the media, public and art production spaces as well as the challenges and opportunities they present.

This year 31 partner institutions have joined our initiative, and we invite you to join us on the last weekend of May; the two roundtables at Cukrarna on Thursday, 25 May will kick off the event, and on the following three days, from 26 to 28 May, you can visit all the venues for free, at least between 12 noon and 6 pm. Some of the exhibitions and related content will also be accessible outside these hours. We therefore ask you to keep an eye on the Ljubljana Art Weekend websites and social networks, as well as the schedules of our partners.

In the spirit of this year’s theme, we therefore warmly invite you to come to our meeting spaces, join in the celebration of our artistic community and help shape a culture in the making!
