Forty-eight years after leaving his home country of Slovenia, Milenko Matanovic went home. This time he was not rebelling against the state, nor shaking up the status quo; instead, he made waves.
Waves is Milenko’s art retrospective that opened last month in Ljubljana. Milenko’s show includes some of his earliest art pieces from his time as a founding member of the renowned OHO Collective, examples of Pomegranate Center’s collaborative artwork created with local communities, as well as brand new pieces created for the exhibit. He chose the exhibit’s name to introduce his idea of the waves of inspiration that have come to him over the years as an artist, community activist, and founder of Pomegranate Center.
