Guided tour / Inge Morath – a retrospective
UGM, Strossmayerjeva 6
Saturday, 29 September 2018, 11:00
guided by: Breda Kolar Sluga, UGM director

Join UGM director Breda Kolar Sluga for a somewhat different guided tour of the Inge Morath exhibition. There are more than 200 photographs from all over the world on display, including a series of portraits and impressions from Maribor at the turn of the millennium.

Inge had visited Maribor during her last project in 2001. Following a special request from the Austrian television, she was received and guided by a well-known Maribor native personality who wishes to remain unnamed. Nevertheless, he will be present at the event and share his experience of the celebrated photographer with his fellow citizens. He was Inge's guide in Maribor as well as in Svečina and at her last stage in Slovenj Gradec. His vivid tale is going to inspire life in the black and white images and introduce the visitors to Inge Morath – the great Human.

The guidance is in Slovenian language.

About the exhibition:
The first major retrospective exhibition of Inge Morath’s work in Slovenia and in the broader region will present more than two hundred photographs from around the world. Beginning with her first photographic projects in the early 1950s in Spain and Venice, and the large body of artists’ portraits, whom she followed throughout her life, the exhibition ranges from an intense exploration of her adopted hometown of New York, her travels along the Danube, and images of Maribor towards the end of her life.
