guided by: Marjeta Ciglenečki, art historian

The presentation of UGM | Maribor Art Gallery collection on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the gallery’s establishment is based on two starting points: to define the prominent features as well as the character of the collection, and to identify in this “retrospective” (re)view the moments that are reinterpreted also in the present time. The exhibition points at the heterogeneous structure of the collection which was formed in the past decades by different collection policies through purchases and donations. The collection’s multi-fold identity is displayed in the collision between modernity and tradition, between progressive and belated creative tendencies.

Marjeta Ciglenečki is a Slovenian art historian and head of the history of art department at University of Maribor. She acted as director of Pokrajinski muzej Ptuj Ormož and was the president of Slovenian History of Art Society.
