INFORMATION ABOUT WORLD PRINT FESTIVAL
From 10th November 1998 till 20th December 1998 big World Print Festival will take
place in Slovenia in organization of AGART Art Association.
Slovenia is a small middle European country having a great print tradition and as
such is very suitable for such a project. In seven art centers , expositions of print
artists from the whole world will be opened at the same time. In each gallery a separate
print technique will be presented.
In such a way the artists will compete for prizes in the same technique.
Maybe this manner of presentation and competition will be more interesting and attractive
as classical forms of print bienales. The number of grand prix will be equal to the
number of presented techniques.
During the Festival a Congress of print artists will be organized in a beautiful tourist
center Bled, that will try to give answers on the problems of modern print creation.
The organizer expects that the majority of artists will present classical techniques, but
newer print suggestions (maybe electronic) as well as print innovations will be welcome.
The Statute and Entry Form can be seen on Internet
