The exhibition will be opened in Slovenian Gallery “Skuc” (Ljubljana, 21st December, 2011 – 12the January, 2012) as the reflection and expansion on the previous part the curator Branko Franceschi has  successfully introduced last month in New York.

High Times: Reflections of Pscyhedelia in Socialist Yugoslavia 1966 – 1976 makes manifest the ever intriguing and fruitful rapport between vanguard artists and popular culture, occurring within the unique context of a society that managed to create its own political, economic, and social system based on its vacillation between East and West during the height of the Cold War.

In the broader cultural sense, the entire collection of High Times: Reflections of Pscyhedelia in Socialist Yugoslavia 1966 – 1976 aims to change the accustomed understanding of Yugoslavia’s neo-avant-garde and new media practices as being inexpressive or too serious in their social engagement and agenda, as well as colorless and materially reduced in their formal aesthetics. (Excerpt from an essay by curator Branko Franceschi.)
