World of Art 2001/2002
series of lectures Strategies of Presentation 2
World of Art is an educational program on theory and practice in contemporary visual art.

It's fifth year is launching the Course for Curators of Contemporary Arts, Workshops Documents and Proposals and a series of lectures entitled Strategies of Presentation2. Within this year's series we
have invited eight artists, curators and critics to present their own curatorial and artistic practices, by definition more innovative and challenging than main-stream ones as established within the art system.
The sixth lecture of this year's series will be held on Tuesday, September 24, at 8 pm
in the Kapelica Gallery in Ljubljana. Lecture Modest Proposals will be delivered by Charles Esche.

Admission is free!


Cordially invited,
