TIVOLI MANSION - INTERNATIONAL CENTRE OF GRAPHIC ART
Just a few minutes away from the city centre and several important institutions, the Tivoli Park’s main promenade – now an attractive outdoor photographic gallery, leads to the Tivoli Mansion.
The present building dates from the early 17th century and was thoroughly refurbished in the 1850’s. Today it houses an important cultural institution – the International Centre of Graphic Arts (MGLC), a museum housing a collection of fine art prints from the 20th century to the present day, a gallery for exhibitions of contemporary fine art, and a fine art print publisher with its own printmaking workshops. It owns a collection of over 3,600 fine art prints, 800 artists’ books and numerous other art publications. MGLC is also the producer of the renowned Ljubljana International Biennial of Graphic Art, which was established in 1955.
On top of this, Tivoli Mansion provides one of the most attractive outdoor settings for social functions in Ljubljana. MGLC rents out the spacious courtyard in front of the mansion, which is connected to the promenade by an ornate stairway, as well as the lecture room, gallery, library and print studios. The hire of premises may be supplemented by the programme of events on offer by MGLC or the mansion café.
