Urban Culture Hotspot: UAUU gallery

POSTED IN City Life TAGS , , COMMENTS 0

Fancy taking a stroll through the center of Ljubljana, but you’re out of ideas on what to actually do there? Well you should pay a visit to the UAUU gallery on Gosposvetska cesta 7! The little gallery and atelier just celebrated it’s 2nd birthday last month and since it’s my favourite gallery in town, I thought it’d be a great idea to write a bit about the place and present it to you, if you don’t know it already. Now what makes UAUU different is the fact that it’s run by a few young artists coming from all sorts of backgrounds from architects, graphic designers to graffiti artists and they started offering the exhibition space to other young or less-known artists. The exhibitions usually last about a month, and they also hosted a few pop-up shops and different workshops, so it’s always something interesting going on there. Behind the front exhibiting space there’s an atelier where you’re bound to see some interesting projects in development and interesting people at work, usually with a cat named Poe lurking around their desks, knocking shit over. The past month the exhibited works in the gallery were handdrawn graphics from one of the founding artist Marko Lekič, and today there’s an opening of the Wild Ride show from Maksim Azarkevič from the 1107 klan. Since the openings here are always a blast, I highly recommend it, cus’ it’s a great way to kick off you Friday evening in the city!

Vas mika sprehod po centru Ljubljane, a ste brez idej kaj dejansko početi tam? No, lahko naprimer obiškete UAUU galerijo na Gosposvetski 7! Ravno ta mala galerija in atelje je ravno praznovala svoj drugi rojstni dan in glede na to, da je to moja najljubša galerija v mestu, se mi je zdela super ideja malce napisat o placu  in vam ga predstaviti, če ga še ne poznate. Kar dela UAUU galerija drugačno je dejstvo, da jo vodijo mladi ustvarjalci z vseh možnih področji, od arhitektov, grafičnih oblikovalcev do grafiterjev, pa še kaj bi se našlo, začeli pa so oddajati razstavni prostor ostalim mladim in manj-poznanim ustvarjalcem. Razstave ponavadi trajajo cel mesec, prav tako pa so gostili tudi že par pop-up shopov in delavnic, tako, da se v UAUUu vedno nekaj dogaja. Zadaj, za razstavnim prostorom se skriva atelje, kjer vedno vidiš zanimive projekte v razvoju in zanimive ljudi na delu, ponavadi z mačkom po imenu Poe, ki se potika po mizah in meče stvari po tleh. Pretekli mesec so bile razstavljene ročno narisane grafike enega izmed ustanovnih članov, Marka Lekiča, danes pa je otvoritev razstave Wild Ride avtorja Maksima  Azarkeviča iz 1107 klana. Otvoritve razstav tu so vedno zabavne (beri žurka), močno priporočam obisk, saj je odličen način za začetek petkove noči v mestu!
