Meta Gabršek Prosenc will held a guided tour of the exhibition Almost Spring / 100 Years of Slovene Art. Exhibition at UGM presents genesis of Slovene art from impressionism to contemporary art production with works by more than 130 artists. Among the participating museums and galleries the Museum of Modern Art has the central role with its contribution of the works by several great names, such as Marij Pregelj, Gabrijel Stupica and Zoran Mušič. Other collections can be recognised by their excellent segments of Slovenian art, for instance the National Gallery with the representatives of Slovenian Impressionism: Rihard Jakopič, Matija Jama, Ivan Grohar and Matija Sternen; Coastal Galleries Piran with the 1980s art, Gallery Mikl house with the sculptures from the end of the century, and the collection of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design with works by its academic staff. The UGM exhibition joins works which normally are not displayed together and by positioning them in new constellations, a fresh discourse is enabled.  

Meta Gabršek Prosenc was director of UGM from 1993-2007, following the position as head of UGM Museum department and head of RSR, Rotovž Exhibition Salon. During the time, when she was the director, UGM won recognition in Slovernia and abroad. She is the author of numerous articles, monographies and catalogues. In 2008 she received Valvasor award for her work.
