A discussion at the closing of the exhibition
The 6th triennial U3 has brought a new, unprejudiced external view on the current trends in and protagonists of contemporary art in Slovenia. It has elicited very intense response and opened a debate on artistic, critical and curatorial practices.
The role and the effects of this year’s U3 will be the subject of an open, two-part discussion.
The first part will focus on how curators perceive the local art tradition from the perspective of the international sphere and what their approaches to the recent contemporary art production are. Participants: Zdenka Badovinac, Charles Esche, Tadej Pogačar and WHW.
After a break the prevalent reception of the U3 exhibition in the media will be discussed, as well as the state of criticism of and reflection on contemporary art in public. Participants: Jurij Krpan,Tevž Logar and Božidar Zrinski.
Moderator Igor Španjol.
