To mark the tenth anniversary of the death of Maria Lassnig (1919-2014), one of the most important Austrian artists of international standing, the Cankarjev dom Cultural and Congress Centre in Ljubljana – in cooperation with the Maria Lassnig Foundation, the Austrian Cultural Forum Ljubljana, the Neue Galerie Graz and Sixpackfilm, among others – is presenting the first solo exhibition in Slovenia. Lassnig’s contributions to art have been recognised many times, and her works are represented in renowned museums and collections worldwide. With her unmistakable visual language and her innovative approach to the representation of the self, Maria Lassnig has had a lasting influence on contemporary art, particularly in the field of graphic art. Her commitment to animated film, which led to the founding of the only Austrian chair for animated film in 1982, was decisive for the promotion of experimental animated film in Austria. The exhibition focuses on Lassnig’s graphic works, but also shows a selection of oil paintings and several short animated films.
