ABOUT THE INSTITUTION
Center sodobnih umetnosti Celje (Center for Contemporary Art Celje) is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 2004 with the main mission to initiate, develop and promote contemporary visual arts in the local, regional and international context.
Situated only one hour from the capital city of Ljubljana, and being one of the most representative institutions for the production and display of contemporary visual arts in the Stajerska region of Slovenia, the Center represents a creative hub devoted to arts, culture and theory, as experienced in the specific conditions of current social, political, and economic situation. Under the auspices of the City Council of Celje and its Cultural Department, the Center has been actively engaged in the project-based cultural programming in cooperation with the partners across the region (in Maribor, Graz, Zagreb) and beyond.
Center for Contemporary Art Celje is a complex of three exhibition venues in the downtown area of Celje: Galerija sodobne umetnosti (Gallery of Contemporary Art, since 1993), Likovni salon (Likovni Salon Gallery, since 1963), and Galerija Racka (Racka Gallery, since 2006). One of the Center's main activities is its Artist-in-Residence programme (up to two months) initiated in 2005.
ABOUT THE OPEN CALL
Center for Contemporary Art Celje announces the International Open Call for exhibition project proposals to be held in the Likovni Salon Gallery in Spring 2010. The applications will be reviewed by curators of the Center for Contemporary Art Celje, and the results will be announced by 15 January 2010.
The Open Call is addressing contemporary visual artists, and groups/collectives from Slovenia and abroad who are invited to submit a solo-show proposal. The Call is not limited by any specific topic, and is open to all media (painting, sculpture, installations, photography, digital animation, sound-based art, video, interactive and interdisciplinary projects). The priority in the selection process will be given to the recent production that challenges a social environment, engages and interact with various audiences and/or communities and to the proposals that will also consider the Likovni salon's spatial possibilities. The gallery images and floor plan can be found on this address:
