JAKOPIČ GALLERY, LJUBLJANA;Established in 1988, the Jakopič Gallery is situated in the underground of the Slovenska cesta 9 in the centre of Ljubljana. The contemporary exhibiting space of more than 900 square metres is part of an architectural complex, designed by Edvard Ravnikar on the location of the Roman Forum in Emona, and includes in situ the reconstruction of the ruins of ancient government buildings.

 

The Jakopič Gallery was at first managed by the Museum of Modern Art, and later taken over by the former Architecture Museum of Ljubljana, which presented contemporary architectural and design exhibitions there until 2004. In 2007 the Municipality of Ljubljana renovated and re-opened the exhibition space, which has been managed by the City museum of Ljubljana since August 2008 and became one of the main venues of Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana in January 2009.

 

A branch of the City Museum of Ljubljana, the Jakopič Gallery hosts exhibitions of contemporary art and design by Slovenian and international artists. The programme of exhibitions focuses on the role of contemporary art in its local environment.
