The exhibition offers a glimpse into the creative processes and practices of nearly 60 women artists, all either Slovenian or working in Slovenia, from the 1990s to the present. It presents an extensive selection of paintings, sculptures, videos, performances, interventions, and sound events, as well as an accompanying programme of presentations, film screenings, lectures, and discussions; the aim being to shed light on aspects of contemporary Slovenian art scene by creating dialogical relationships between the works of artists from different generations, all using different media, practices, and approaches.

Meta Grgurevič: Scraping for Gold
Grgurevič is one of the driving forces behind attempts to bring knowledge from the fields of mechanics and electrical engineering to the field of contemporary art. She has long been interested in systems that move or use light effects to create the illusion of movement and has been incorporating these into her kinetic objects since 2013. Grgurevič opens her latest project Scraping for Gold with a half-millimeter-sized grain of gold. The installation consists of six objects, each representing one fragment of the artist’s experience in obtaining the gold. Hundreds of discarded mobile phones are revealed as modern-day gold deposits.

William Forsythe: Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time, No.3
In this third version of the work, each of the pendulums can be separately controlled. The interactive installation consists of 60 plumbs hanging on strings and moving in the space. Choreographed by Forsythe, the movement of the weights is programmed in such a way as to produce a kinetic and acoustic counterpoint that divides the space into many unpredictable, changing parts. Filled with unpredictable complexity, the space addresses the visitors’ perceptions and reflexes and leads them into a light and surprising choreography of perpetual avoidance.

Michelangelo Pistoletto: The Fourth Generation
Though trained as a classical painter, Pistoletto developed a strong interest in the conceptual aspects of art objects early in his career. This included the use of easily available materials such as tissue paper and mirrors, which helped to lay the foundations of the Arte Povera movement. Influenced by the socially and politically engaged experimental theatre of the time, Pistoletto envisioned a greater role for art in society and politics in his later projects. These sought to reshape the human world while involving numerous collaborators and crossing disciplinary boundaries with the inclusion of music, theatre, and installation into the elements of visual art.
