Established in 1993, the Celje Gallery of Contemporary Art is situated on the outskirts of the old town centre and is part of the architectural complex of buildings that once formed the foothill castle of the Counts of Celje. Since 2005 it is managed by the Celeia Celje Institute - Centre for Contemporary Arts as its principal exhibition space. Annually the venue hosts up to 10 exhibitions addressing specific themes or offering a thorough monographic presentation of individual artistic positions. The adjacent small Hodnik (Corridor) Gallery features a lively programme of short-termed (even less than a week) presentations by emerging artists from the region. The exhibitions are usually prepared by the house curators although the Centre for Contemporary Arts also collaborates with foreign experts and offers a working platform for guest curators through its artist-in-residence programme AiR Celeia Celje.

Josip Pelikan Photographic Studio, Celje

Celje Museum of Recent History - Pelikan - 18.jpg

Josip Pelikan Photographic Studio, a branch of the Celje Museum of Recent History, was established as a museum exhibition in 1989. The studio is without a doubt one of the best preserved luxurious glass photographic ateliers in Europe with original equipment used by the famous Slovene photographer Josip Pelikan (1885–1977). The 19th-century glass photographic studio on the second floor makes daylight photography possible even today.

The museum display presents a special collection containing historic photographic equipment, including travel cameras, mobile study cameras, studio lenses and backgrounds. Original photography of various formats, negatives and glass photographic plates show mainly portrait, studio, industry and mountain motives. There are around 50,000 photographs and 10,000 negatives in the collection and Celje Museum of Recent History opened an exhibition of selected material in December 2009.

Once a month the studio has been revived by Borut Peterlin, a professional photographer and an enthusiastic researcher of old photographic techniques.
