Maria Lassnig

In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the death of Maria Lassnig (1919–2014), one of Austria’s most important and internationally renowned artists, Cankarjev dom is presenting the artist's first solo exhibition in Slovenia.

Lassnig is particularly known for the depth of psychological expression in her self-portraits and her concept of Body Awareness. Throughout her remarkable artistic career she produced a prolific body of paintings and drawings, and also pursued filmmaking (animated film). She engaged in a focused dialogue with her art, which always constituted the pivotal strand of her life. Even though Lassnig’s work gained well deserved public recognition at a relatively late stage in her life, today her works form an important part of the permanent collections of major museums (MoMA in New York City, The Essl Collection, Museum Ludwig in Cologne, the Albertina Museum, etc.). 

The exhibition at Cankarjev dom’s Gallery primarily features Lassnig’s drawings, as well as a selection of oils on canvas and several short animated films.  

Presented in collaboration with: Maria Lassnig Foundation, Austrian Cultural Forum, Neue Galerie Graz, sixpackfilm and others.
