Carinthian Gallery of Fine Arts

The specific collections of the Carinthian Gallery of Fine arts are made from gifts, bequests and planned purchases aimed at the collection of works of arts of so-called engaged arts. With major international exhibitions, we have created a splendid international collection, however, the donation of the entire body of work of the Italian sculptor and conceptualist Pino Poggi is the basis for the layout of the museum of so-called social arts. The regional arts collection includes works by modern artists from both sides of the Carinthian border, and special collections including donations of a major number of works of art which are dedicated to Bogdan Borčić, Valentin Oman and Štefan Planinc. Special attention is given to the collection of works of the incredible Jože Tisnikar that is known to the world as a self-taught painter, and this collection is supplemented with a “homage to Tisnikar” collection with the artwork of Slovenian and foreign masters of the related poetics in the arts. The gallery with its annual exhibition programme presents actual home and foreign works from the area of visual arts, and is active in the Slovenian and international artistic events.
