Former MTT factory
Maribor / Melje
May 21 − 18 July 2021

In 2021, the Maribor Art Gallery is re-launching the International Triennial of Art and Environment in its eighth edition. The artistic director of EKO 8, Alessandro Vincentelli, an independent curator from the UK, titled the revised edition of the triennial A Letter to the Future. The exhibition will present the collected visions of more than 30 international and Slovenian artists dedicated to the central theme of the letter on the premises of the former MTT factory in Melje. In the face of the uncertainties created by the global pandemic, and in the new and enhanced need to recognize signs and learn from history, the EKO 8 Triennial will be designed as a barometer of change.
