Jože Aberšek ABA – Živela Ustvarjalnost! (Long Live Creativity!)

This exhibition, the opening of our cycle “Živela Ustvarjalnost!”(Long Live Creativity!) opened on June 18, although our work to make it possible, started much earlier …

Jože Aberšek, to some known simply as ABA, is a lifelong, passionate portrait caricaturist that professionally took another route, but never stopped drawing; today many people have themselves, portrayed by ABA, for the most various occasions in life. He drew cartoons and caricatures for magazines and papers, but also designed cd-labels and other published materials.

However, he was never presented in a mono-graphical exhibition, to be acknowledged for the variability of his doing. It was also a kind of endeavor to put up the exhibition; how to present him, how to arrange things, to make the Gesamtkunstwerk of Joze ABA Aberšek a whole experience.

A good week of dialogue, of talks and assessing, of finding different works and putting them on show. Good times for all involved and a quite successful start of this presentation of passionate creatives of our home-town and region.
