  • Description: “Artists from two minorities” is a cross-border project in the field of painting that sees the participation of the Slovenian minority in Italy and the Italian minority in Slovenia. The main objective of this project is to contribute to evoking among the people the perception of the border area as, in fact, a single yet varied and composite cultural space where Minorities play a significant role, as an element of junction and contact between two distinct geopolitical areas and, also, as a bridge and a cultural mediator between peoples. The project consists in the organisation of a collective and itinerant art exhibition that - in the spring and summer of 2004, as the Republic of Slovenia joins the European Union - takes place in several exhibition venues along the border, in order to celebrate the creativity of a group of painters belonging to the two Minorities. Each of them is represented by seven artists: Cej, Jussa, Klanjšček, Palčič, Raza, Švara and Vecchiet representing the Slovenian Minority in Italy, and Apollonio, Bassani, Juričič, Paladin, Stipanov, Ugussi and Zudič the Italian Minority in Slovenia. Painters of different ages, with a solid background, at ease between tradition and innovation, often engaged in teaching activities in academies and schools at various levels, the artists of the two Minorities are the creative image of an identity that is deeply rooted and a culture that knows no borders. The exhibitions take place in the Kulturni Dom in Gorizia and the Beneška Galerija in San Pietro al Natisone and, on the Slovenian side of the project, in the towns of Koper- Capodistria, Piran-Pirano and Nova Gorica.
