Dekleva-Gregorič Arhitekti in Belgrade

Tina Gregorič and Aljosa Dekleva will be in town on June 28th to present their recent work at KCB. Talk will start at 19h, introduction by Vasa Perović.

A day before, on June 27th at Javno kupatilo Dunav Art Space, aka Tursko kupitlo (Cara Dušana 45), exhibition compiling the work of seven Slovene Architects will open at 22h. Both events art taking place within the Architecture Week in Belgrade.

With the funny set of circumstances and at the very late stage of the project, I have been named the curator. Here is what I wrote for the exhibition catalogue: The display is based on the exhibition ‘SixPack’, presenting the work of several Slovene architects. The invited group belongs to a younger generation, whose work is parallel to the growth of the national culture and forms the part of the social and economic transformation in their country. Common to all participants is their international education and experience which has played a catalytic role in the formation of the new professional standards. Any lessons learned from such transition could be an invaluable experience to any other society prepared to go down a similar path.
