CITY ART GALLERY, LJUBLJANA; The building at Mestni trg 5 was built in the early 16th century by Count Lanthieri. In 1866, the house was bought by the trader Hamann. It remained in use as a commercial building - until more recently there was a fur shop - up until 1963, when it was turned into an art gallery by way of a decree adopted by the Ljubljana Centre municipal people's committee.

During the 50 years of uninterrupted operation, numerous exhibitions were put on, with the Gallery's programme changing in accordance with cultural needs and the growing exhibition opportunities in Ljubljana. The emphasis has been on a well-balanced relationship between exhibitions dealing with domestic and international artistic production, and between group and solo exhibitions, with a special focus on retrospective and overview exhibitions of renowned artists and monographic exhibitions of younger artists.
