The opening weekend of the 22nd Art Stays Contemporary Art Festival will open the doors of all exhibition venues in and around Ptuj between 4 and 7 July with a rich accompanying programme, hosting artworks by artists from all over the world until 8 September. Ptuj will once again be the summer art capital of Slovenia.

The 22nd edition of Art Stays, Slovenia’s largest contemporary art festival, The Space, will once again artistically fuse the city’s cultural heritage with contemporary art production by artists from all over the world. This year’s edition asks what space is, what kind of space we are talking about and whether what is around us is really all there is.

The opening of the festival will take place on 4 July at 6pm in the Dominican Monastery, followed by the opening concert of the Argentinian band La Fanfarria del Capitan at 9pm on the festival stage in Slovenska Square. The opening of the main festival exhibition The Space in the Ptuj City Gallery will take place on Friday 5 July at 7pm, and the Art Stays opening party will take place on Saturday 6 July from 8pm onwards at Ptuj Castle.

The full programme of the opening weekend you can find HERE.

The venues of the 22nd edition of the festival will be: the Ptuj City Gallery, the Dominican Monastery, the Mihelič Gallery, the Ptuj Castle, the Exhibition Centre of the Ivan Potrč Library Ptuj, the Magistrat Gallery, the FO.VI Gallery, the exhibition centre of the Breg Creative Centre, the stage on the Slovenske trg square and the squares and streets of the old town centre.
