Next Generation

The exhibition Next Generation is aimed at young artists and students from eight art schools, art academies and university programs for visual arts.

The project is intended as a collective moment of meeting and getting to know an international group of 13 artists, art professionals and professors and 33 students. Between October 20 and 22, 2022, they worked at the Monfort Gallery in Portorose.

This is an initiative of Piran Coastal Galleries, a public institution that seeks to exchange with existing higher education programs in the wider European area, in this case Venice, Ljubljana, Vienna and Koper. At the same time, it is an opportunity for experts, the public and young artists to get to know a museum-gallery and participate in its environment through practical and theoretical work.

Works of painting, video works, interactive games, sculptures, installations, photographs, performances and spatial installations are presented at the exhibition. A total of 31 Slovenian and international art students will exhibit: Karmen Bradovent, Maja Brus, Katarina Cencič, Aliya Daveltova, Lorenzo Ercoli, Yirui Fang, Alberto Favaro, Giacomo Furlan, Alexandrina Godorogea, Moreno Hebling, Ana Južnič, Marija Klun, Jaka Komac, Sebastian Konzett, Hannah Koselj, Uroš Kumer, Marlene Mautner, Alice Mestriner, Ahad Moslemi, Nika Oblak, Filippo Perfetti, Noemi Restani, Elena Roccaro, Klara Rus, Iva Suhadolnik Gregorin, Špela Šedivy, Ana Šeruga, Petja Škrubej, Nina Tovornik, GORGON URBAN, Sanja Vatić, Andrijana Vesovska, Daniela Weiss / Litto / The System Collective.
