Petra Cvelbar: In Women's Hands

Between 26 June (opening at 20.00) and 24 August 2018
Small Gallery, admission free

At home in photographing bands up close at the front of the stage, Petra Cvelbar finds inspiration for her continuous explorations in music. Her photos are featured on album covers, in music magazines and on websites, and are used by music bands as their promotional materials (for more info on her work visit www.petracvelbar.com).

In Women’s Hands, an exhibition of jazz photography accompanying the 59th Jazz Festival Ljubljana, does not deal directly with the situation of women in the (music) world, does not wish to judge or emphasise it or address gender-determined roles in music. It only aims to show that female presence (artistry) represents a different approach to music delivery.
