What if … KAOS festival of contemporary collage

Festival: 29. 6. - 14. 8. 2018

Main Exhibition Opening: Thursday, July 5th

Layer house, Škrlovec tower, Mergentaler gallery, Art district Kranj / Kranj, Slovenia

Layer house, the house of art, will be hosting the first festival of contemporary collage. From 29th of June to 15th of August a set of artistic events will change the Kranj old town into a multilayered conglomerate of colours, ideas and variety of expressions. KAOS, the main exhibition hosting 100 local and international artists, will open on Thursday, 5th of July at 18:00. The exhibition brings a modern display of understanding and use of collage technique, while the accompanying activities offer the invited artists to get to know each other, and a fresh approach to aggregation of different artistic as well as musical genres. This summer, the culture district of KAOS will turn into an artistic chaos that will be hard to avoid. 

What if … you joined the workshops that will be happening throughout the summer? 
What if … Kranj became the town of contemporary collage?

KAOS announces five exhibitions titled “What if …” with the main opening of the exhibitions at Thursday, July 5 at 6 PM. At the first exhibition curated by Maja Antončič 8 artists in residency are displayed: Claudio Beorchia, Carniollus Brut, Giorgos Chronis, Barbara Demšar, Urška Mazej, Kai Holland, Simone Karl and Lane. The second exhibition is hosting 14 artists working in the field of illustration, design, moving collage and artist book, two new street interventions will be shown on the Tomšičeva street, in the Škrlovec Tower artists selected from the open call will be exhibited and at the exhibition Mail Art postcards made out of collage will be displayed.
