Miart Gallery London announce first UK solo exhibition of Michael Gregorjev Murn

‘ECHOES’ by Michael Gregorjev Murn will open on 10th May and run until 6th June, 2024. Set to be a defining moment in MGM’s artistic journey, the exhibition is the first stop on an ambitious eight-year global tour for the artist, which will involve art fairs around the world and culminate in a retrospective exhibition in New York.

Murn’s inaugural solo UK retrospective will be exhibited at the award-winning Miart Gallery London, a spectacular 560m2 contemporary and modern art centre located in the heart of Mayfair on St. James’s Street, London. Miart Gallery London, as well as being named "Best Gallery or Museum in United Kingdom 2024” and featured in “The 20 Best Galleries or Museums in The World 2024", by the American Art Awards and World Art Awards, was also named as one of the ‘Top 10 galleries in London 2022’ by London Walks.

The exhibition will showcase a curated selection of 35 artworks, emphasising MGM's prowess in abstract paintings and digital graphics. The curation of the exhibition will provide an immersive insight into MGM’s creative evolution and thematic diversity, and will also involve a presentation of his monograph, offering an in-depth look into his artistic endeavours and narratives. Miart Gallery London will present this exhibition in its expansive Mayfair space, as part of an ongoing exhibition programme designed to support diverse artistic expressions through its multi-level layout and commitment to bridging Eastern and Western art forms. It provides the perfect backdrop for innovative works, allowing visitors to explore a unique blend of contemporary art across its variously sized halls.  

Michael Gregorjev Murn describes himself as a ‘hyper-creative artist’, and as one of the leading Slovenian artists in the world, he is a prominent ambassador of contemporary art movements in Slovenia, with an innate understanding of the importance of international activities and promotion of arts worldwide. Murn explains: “The complexity within my artworks mirrors the intricacies of my life. Eager to explore everything, learn from every experience, and immerse myself in diverse cultures, religions, and backgrounds, I wholeheartedly embrace the unknown.”

A multi-disciplinary, multi-facetted artist, Murn is something of a Renaissance man, and doesn’t restrict himself to one medium or creative outlet, applying his artistic talents to painting, drawing, graphic art, photography, poetry and sculpting.

The exhibition promises to be an engaging experience.
