In its 15 years of existence, the Kapelica Gallery, which operates in Ljubljana, Kersnikova 4 as a project of the K6/4 Institute, established itself as one of the most relevant places for the presentation of contemporary art in Slovenia and, owing to its artistic intransigence, Kapelica is also renowned abroad. The gallery strives to develop a discourse of contemporary exploratory artistic practices necessary for an in-depth understanding of an art that takes as its object contemporaneity in its most radical dimensions.
