Oleg Kulik: Golden Fleece
X-OP / KIBLA PORTAL, Valvasorjeva ulica 40, Maribor


As part of Oleg Kulik’s residency stay in Maribor, a workshop and performance is organized on Monday, 22 July 2019 at the exhibition venue of KIBLA Portal. The upcoming exhibition Golden Fleece by the Russian artist will be held at the same location, with the opening ceremony starting at 7 p. m. on Friday, 9 August 2019.

The workshop / performance is conceived as a creative session with the artist and is scheduled for the entire day. The participants are going to construct a hands-on participatory sculpture that is going to be presented for the first time at the opening ceremony of Kulik’s retrospective on Friday, 9 August 2019.

The workshop is divided into two parts:

10 a. m.–1 p. m. workshop with an organized group of participants

17:00–21:00 workshop open to the public

The workshop is open and intended for all!

No sign up required.

The personal mythology of the artist, his unique “magic historicism”, manifests a new turn in the spiral of Kulik’s biography – a project of materializing actions and performances in “living paintings” with eyes and “living sculptures”, collective and ultimately corporeal.
