TRANSIENCE – HOMAGE TO TISNIKAR
>> On display from 13 May to 26 September 2021.
>> Curator: Marko Košan
The life of Jože Tisnikar ended in 1998 in a tragic traffic accident, just when he had achieved the greatest accomplishment of his career with a large retrospective exhibition to mark his 70th birthday at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Koroška (KGLU) in Slovenj Gradec. The original, unrepeatable, and inimitable artistic story of his bitter quest to capture the ultimate truths of human existence, however, remains an endless source of inspiration for new projects – projects built around one of the primary collections of the Slovenj Gradec Museum entitled “HOMAGE TO TISNIKAR”, conceived by Milena Zlatar, art historian and former director of the KGLU. To commemorate the great painter, the collection combines works by Slovenian and foreign artists who share similar artistic sensibilities.
Collection HOMAGE TO TISNIKAR presents 66 paintings and drawings of Jože Tisnikar, along with works of following artists: Mirsad Begić, Bogdan Borčić, Matej Čepin, Hermann Falke, Metod Frlic, Zdenko Huzjan, Roberto Kusterle, Dragiša Modrinjak, Zoran Mušič, Valentin Oman, Tihomir Pinter, Herman Pivk, Vladimir Veličković, Franc Vozelj.
