Tuesday, 13 June 2017, 6 p. m. – exhibition opening
Wednesday, 14 June 2017, 10 a. m. – breakfast with the artist

You are kindly welcome to attend the opening of an exhibition by Boštjan Plesničar entitled Too Modern Beauty KIT, on Tuesday, 13 June 2017, at 6 p. m., at the location of artKIT, Glavni trg 14, Maribor.

Boštjan Plesničar is one of the members of the ‘too modern’ movement, which rejects in its own way the elitism of academic rules, and consciously profanicizes art  in every possible respect. Content is given priority over stylistic and technical principles of an artwork. Motifs are often figural, and there is plenty of realistic stylization, which enables the artists to deliver the narrative in a fine art manner. A too modern work of art always contains a certain level of bizarreness, irony, sarcasm, and humor.

On Wednesday, 14 June 2017, you are welcome to join us for a breakfast with the artist, between 10 a. m. and 1 p. m..

The exhibition will be showing until 15 July 2017.

Admission free.
