Irwin: NSK State in Time Exhibition Opening Reception!
Artist's talk: The exhibition opening will be followed by an artist's talk by the IRWIN member Borut Vogelnik in the Folk Hall Auditorium at 7:00 PM.
Initiated by the Slovenian art collective IRWIN in 1992, NSK State in Time is a collective body of people, their actions, and experiences that has evolved through a series of collaborative art practices. The exhibition presents a selection of IRWIN's projects that examine relations between art and ideology, and address the issues of non-territorial identity and participation of NSK citizens in the activities of this conceptual state.

Two IRWIN members, Borut Vogelnik and Andrej Savski, will conduct a series of workshops, critiques, and collaborative projects.

About the Myers Forum Artists
Borut Vogelnik and Andrej Savski are co-founders and members of the Slovenian multi-disciplinary collective IRWIN, established in 1983. IRWIN, along with the music and performance group Laibach (est. 1980), the Theater of the Sisters of Scipion Nasice (est. 1983), and the design faction New Collectivism (est. 1982), comprise a broader art organization Neue Slowenische Kunst (or NSK). Using a highly developed system of discursive instruments, aesthetic symbols, and performative techniques, NSK has employed visual arts, video, music, theater, writing, and public relations to investigate the relationship between art, social context and ideology.
