MAY 23 — 26, 2024

Join us for the third edition of LJUBLJANA ART WEEKEND, a four day programme of exhibitions and events to engage with artists, curators, collectors and art professionals. 

The fast approaching third edition of LJUBLJANA ART WEEKEND will be curated by ETC., an annual magazine committed to showcasing contemporary artistic expressions spanning from the Baltic to the Balkans. The theme of the third issue of the magazine, Selling Out, directly correlates to the overarching theme of Ljubljana Art Weekend. It delves into the complex realities of paid work, precarious employment, self-fulfillment through labor, and the perpetual struggle for sustenance.

As part of the Ljubljana Art Weekend, ETC. will curate a group exhibition aligned with the themes explored in its third magazine issue. Moreover, we will prepare an exhilarating and diverse program that includes discussions and lectures, such as a round table discussion that will present the practices of four international contemporary art curators working in different institutional frameworks within the art system, a film screening, four art walks curated by four different art professionals, studio visits, performances and more. 

We are also delighted to be further developing our tried and true partnerships with more than 25 local public institutions, galleries, project spaces and other artistic initiatives, included into the LJUBAW platform, which will present their diverse independent programmes and prepare additional content, such as workshops, guided tours and many exhibition openings. 

As ever, the long Weekend, ranging from Friday 24th to Sunday 26th, remains open and free of charge between the hours of 12.00 and 18.00.

Stay tuned for more updates as we excitedly count down the days! We look forward to seeing you soon.

Joining forces,
reaching wider

In conversation with Lara Mejač

ETC. is an international art magazine published once a year with the aim of creating a medium for showcasing current international and local artistic production as well as establishing a common space in the field of emerging arts ‘from the Balkans to the Baltics’, as their tagline goes.

For the next three years, ETC. Magazine is taking over the artistic direction of LJUBLJANA ART WEEKEND. As our young platforms share many of the same viewpoints and objectives, we decided to join forces and connect the publication’s topic with our Art Weekend programme. 

During the preparation of this year's edition, which is thematically connected to the next issue of the magazine, titled Selling Out, we sat down with ETC.’s curator, Lara Mejač, to talk about this year’s programme as well as their vision for future editions.
