ART CIRCLE

International Visual Arts Festival

ART CIRCLE International is dedicated to professional artists and curators. Artists are selected by an international jury for specific events several times a year following an open call. The artworks created during the residency time remain in the ART CIRCLE collection. These works are exhibited to the public after the residency in Slovenia and at subsequent exhibitions abroad. In this way, ART CIRCLE helps to bring contemporary art to non-urban regions.

ABOUT THE NAME

Why the CIRCLE

ART CIRCLE. The circle in the name is used as a symbol of connecting, interweaving contents and actors involved in several social networks that make up the project. The circle also defines the multitude of cultural events.

»The circle, one of the most primal elements of artistic creation, symbolically embodies the sense of unity. There is nothing enchanted about it. It is just a constant evolution that guides us and gives the right tact to the dynamics of life.« Nejka and Uroš Klinec, hosts of the first Art Embassy of Poland in Slovenia
