Current exhibitions

Out of the Circle Out of the Circle Schaubmarov Mlyn v Pezinku, Pezinok-Cajla
Exhibition will last 60 days

The view of the modern and contemporary Slovak ceramics set in the environment of Schaubmar's Mill in Pezinok (and not by accident) follows several themes, which in ceramics have the status of archetypes - vessels, plates, figures. These could be compulsory figures for a ceramist, but also a program, evidence of the medium's vital but also anachronistic nature.

Upcoming exhibitions

From the Academy to Nature. Forms of Landscape Painting in Central Europe 1860–1890 From the Academy to Nature. Forms of Landscape Painting in Central Europe 1860–1890
Esterházy Palace,
Exhibition starts in 15 days

The aim of this exhibition is to introduce the main centres of landscape painting instruction that influenced the depiction of nature and natural motifs. In the second half of the 19th century, following the example of the Barbizon School, approaches to the depiction of nature were relaxed. The discipline of landscape painting was gradually reformed, and also re-introduced at art academies.

Arnold Peter Weisz-Kubínčan (1898 - 1944) was born into a Jewish family in the town of Usch, Prussia. From 1913 to 1917 he studied sculpture at the School of Arts and Crafts in Budapest. After the war he continued in his studies in Berlin, most probably at a private academy. In Berlin of the 1920s he could be close to the expressionistic tendencies which suited his artistic nature. Weisz-Kubínčan is a unique figure in terms of our modern painting and drawing but also due to his mysticism.
