An exhibition of nearly two hundred photos of artworks from the National Gallery of Slovenia' s collection will take place from 4 August to 4 November 2018 along the Jakopič Promenade in Tivoli Park. The exhibition is organized in cooperation with the Tourism Ljubljana on the occasion of the100th anniversary of the National Gallery of Slovenia. The centenary of a cultural institution is a landmark deserving special attention.
On the 18th of September, 1918, the National Gallery Society was founded – having neither collection or exhibition space nor financial assets, but furnished with a lot of zeal. The palace of Narodni Dom became its home in 1925, and since 1933 an extensive permanent art collection has been exhibited in it. Thirteen years later the Gallery became a state institution and a home for all of us.
Displayed along the Jakopič Promenade in Tivoli Park are details of works of art from the Gallery’s permanent collection which was considerably expanded after the renovation of the palace of Narodni Dom in 2016. To recognize them as creations of our artists means to belong to the Slovenian community, to participate in its happy and less happy days with that creative willpower that brought into existence the National Gallery of Slovenia. Come and celebrate with us!
Celebrations, marking the 100th anniversary of the National Gallery of Slovenia, are under the honorary patronage of His Excellency Mr Borut Pahor, President of the Republic of Slovenia.
