The 27th Biennial of Graphic Arts brings eight views on art prints, the common thread of these different exhibitions being reproducibility of art. As its specific characteristic, the reproducibility of art, first occurs with the first prints in the Renaissance, becomes a decisive influence on twentieth century art, and is also relevant today. The 27th Biennial of Graphic Arts is comprised of the main Biennial exhibition, the already traditional exhibition of the artist awarded the Grand Prize at the previous Biennial, and six accompanying exhibitions prepared by various galleries in Ljubljana.
On view till 28 October 2007!
