In 2000, Moderna galerija in Ljubljana founded the Arteast 2000+ Collection and staged its first public presentation in an unrenovated building of a former army barracks in the city’s Metelkova complex – in the building that now houses the Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova. Arteast 2000+ is the first ever museum collection conceived and assembled with a view to giving prominence to East European postwar avant-gardes.
On every summer Thursday in July and August, the Museum of Modern Art plus Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova will be open for public till 8 p.m. You are cordially invited to join us in our summer special from 6 to 8 p.m.

Retrospective exhibition of the Painter Do You Know Your Duty (V.S.S.D.) duo, active between 1985 and 1995, and Alen Ožbolt, who after the discontinuation of V.S.S.D. continued his own artistic journey. The exhibition offers a comprehensive insight into the production of this particular phenomenon of art in the late 1980s and early 1990s in our country.
