TRANSFORM is an ambitious project on connecting art academies of South-East Europe which has been implemented biannually since 2009. It gives young creators a platform for a professional presentation in the framework of an international group exhibition and thereby significantly contributes to the development of international cooperation between higher education institutions in the field of visual arts.

The Academy of Fine Arts and Design (UL ALUO) has successfully participated in all foreign exhibitions of the project to date; in 2019, for the centennial of the University in Ljubljana, the ALUO took over the organisation and implementation of the exhibition and the accompanying event program in Ljubljana (in multiple locations: Museum of Modern Art Metelkova, National Museum of Slovenia, Slovene Ethnographic Museum, Alkatraz Gallery and Pešak Gallery).

In this year’s exhibition, titled TRANS-FORM:ACTION, which will take place between 15 October and 17 November 2019, students from the academies in Ljubljana, Zagreb, Sophia, Bucharest, Skopje and Istanbul are participating.

The following events will also take place in the framework of the project: a ten-day workshop titled Place in Transformation with select students from guest partner academies (4 –15  October 2019) and the exhibition Transformations, a presentation of the short-listed proposals for holistic graphic design TRANS-FORM:ACTION at the TAM-TAM Street Gallery (8 October–11 November 2019).

Opening of the exhibition will take place on Tuesday, 15 October 2019, at 7 pm.
