Children's Week + Bites into Art, Dots and Stripes from the UGM Collection
exhibition and book for children (5+)
UGM, Strossmayerjeva 6
3–8 October 2023

Dear children, during Children's Week, we invite you and your families to visit the UGM exhibitions free of charge. In the Invisible Hand exhibition, you will be able to explore fantasy motifs, e.g. from lands created by the artist with the help of artificial intelligence, or images in which the artist has woven images of toys and cartoons from his childhood. You are especially welcome to visit the exhibition "Digging into Art, Dots and Lines" from the UGM Collection, which we have prepared especially for you. The exhibition will feature drawings, paintings and sculptures that are presented in the book of the same name, which will be presented to you at Saturday's workshop. Your parents, educators and teachers are also invited to come and see the exhibitions and attend the lecture. Have a creative Children's Week!
