Opening of the exhibition Adriana Maraž, Retrospective

You and your friends are cordially invited to the opening of the exhibition by Adriana Maraž on Thursday, 11 July 2024, at 7 pm, at the International Centre of Graphic Arts in Ljubljana.

Adriana Maraž (1931–2015) is the most prominent Slovenian woman artist in the field of fine art printmaking, who also gained international recognition. She studied Painting at the Academy of Visual Arts in Ljubljana (now the Academy of Fine Arts and Design), but after 1965 printmaking became her main concern. This retrospective shows that her approach to intaglio printmaking was a masterclass in meticulous craftsmanship and creative innovation. Her prints in combined intaglio techniques evolved into a sophisticated play of form, texture and narrative depth. She did not only conquer the intricate technical processes of printmaking, but also the philosophy that printmaking is a dynamic and evolving language capable of expressing deep concepts and emotions, which is why her works bear the seal of a transformative legacy.

The curators of the exhibition: Breda Škrjanec, MA and Nadja Zgonik, PhD

Exhibition design: Mina Fina

The exhibition was produced in cooperation with the Slovenian Association of Fine Arts Societies (ZDSLU) and the Ljubljana Fine Artists Society (DLUL).
