Museum of Modern Art information
Lonely Planet review
Housed in an ugly modern building (Edvard Ravnikar; 1939-51), the inwardly vibrant and inspiring Museum of Modern Art exhibits a permanent collection of 20th-century Slovenian art on two floors that helps put some of the socialist-inspired work of sculptors such as Jakob Savinšek (Protest ) into artistic perspective.
Watch out for works by Tone Kralj (Peasant Wedding ), the expressionist France Mihelič (The Quintet ) and the surrealist Štefan Planinc (Primeval World series). Some people might consider the works by multimedia group Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK; Suitcase for Spiritual Use: Baptism under Triglav ) and the artists' cooperative IRWIN (Kapital ) 'fun' rather than 'serious' art.
