Art Stays - fragile
Slovenian contemporary visual art festival
The sixth edition of the largest Slovenian contemporary visual art festival Art Stays is titled FRAGILE. It focuses on the fragility of art materials, and indirectly addresses the fragility of relationships and emotions in modern society.
Glass, ceramics, paper, plants, and other forms of natural life will be the common thread at every exhibition opening. They offer a retreat to the vast worlds of sculpturing, photography and painting, as well as art installations and performances, and music. The festival is complemented by the creations of Ptuj’s best chefs and winemakers, and accompanied by a film program, and Art Stays summer academy with workshops and talks about topical issues.
Explore the world of contemporary art through the works of the most promising young artists, and shining stars of world museums, galleries, and biennials.
6 July at 6 PM
The participating artists comprise Mustafa Sabbagh, Andrea Morucchio, Pipilotti Rist, Jeongmoon Choi, Fernanda Maria Guzman, Rósa Sigrún Jónsdóttir, Polona Demšar, Naoko Tanaka, and Ai Weiwei.
