Changing direction in 1995, the gallery now runs a programme that has summoned an entirely new audience to the chapel (Kapelica), and to what used to be a liturgical place of the Apprentice Hostel. Kapelica Gallery is the space of virtual interactions among artists, the audience and ideas, and one of the central platforms of contemporary art research in Slovenia. It enables people from different artistic environments to experiment with new paradigms and borders in contemporary art. The gallery programme is based on presentation of art production that is scarce or completely absent in other Slovene galleries. The points of interest are space installations, performances, artistic actions, sound events and artistic presentations with educational potential. A common denominator of various genres in the gallery is the characteristics of Contemporary Investigative Arts. The stress is on research, exploration and experimentation of frontiers of artistic discourses and urban poetics. The gallery's programme is divided in four main thematic groups: installations and ad hoc projects, technology through art, science through art and corporeality through art. Kapelica Gallery has established links with numerous galleries and initiatives abroad (Live Art Development Agency from UK) working with many guest curators, artists and theoreticians of contemporary artistic practices. The gallery programme has been presented at various symposia and conferences round the world, in the framework of numerous international festivals (International Festival of Computer Arts (IFCA), Sarajevo Winter, Salon of Young Artists in Zagreb) and Biennials (Venice Biennale 2003, International Association for the Biennial of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean) and the gallery team is also a consulting body for international selectors.
