KIBLA PORTAL, Friday, 1 June 2018, at 5 p. m.
Over two months after the exhibition opening and following the tragic event, the death of an exceptional artist, KIBLA PORTAL in Maribor will be hosting once again selected Slovene artists, who formerly studied under the mentorship of Professor Metka Krašovec. In the first part, artists will be presenting the considerations and perspectives behind their works, as they try to rekindle the memory of the time of their own artistic formation at the Academy. The second part of the event will include a discussion on how the work of outstanding mentor and professor Metka Krašovec was experienced by different generation painters. The event is an opportunity for a get-together of current and former students, and is co-organized in collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Ljubljana.
