Current exhibitions

Action ZET / Art-historical Undertaking Action ZET / Art-historical Undertaking Esterházyho palác, Bratislava
Exhibition will last 340 days

As of November this year, artist Marcel Mališ will be painting his authorial replica of the lost work in the SNG atrium under a changed title ThanksSeeming of the Czechoslovak People. How precisely he will copy the origin is up to his decision. The gallery will be his "studio" and the picture will develop in front of the public eye. The painting action will become a starting point of a new experimental genre - an art undertaking which reflects our thinking about the status of the national gallery as an educational institution of today; a place of asking questions and looking for answers.

7x7. Seven Liberal Thoughts on the Arts 7x7. Seven Liberal Thoughts on the Arts Esterházyho palác, Bratislava
Exhibition will last 61 days

Project Seven Liberal Thoughts on the Arts, a collective work by curators at the SNG, responds to the flourishing of online culture during the quarantine measures because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Even prior to that, the SNG's digital footprint was relatively pronounced, and therefore under the new conditions it came naturally to us to expand our online range.

Active Zone – Image, Space, Perspective Active Zone – Image, Space, Perspective Esterházyho palác, Bratislava
Exhibition will last 80 days

Zone is an educational space for visitors of all age categories, who like to explore, experiment, and want to learn more about interesting topics from fine art. Here, we connect interaction, new knowledge, fun, and relax with original works of art which are commented and explained though installations.

You can't buy a butterfly. Contemporary art donated by Tatra banka You can't buy a butterfly. Contemporary art donated by Tatra banka Esterházyho palác, Bratislava
Exhibition will last 124 days

Live art, in exceptionally diverse media, is in this period harder to lay hold of in museums than ever before. All the more therefore do we appreciate the generous financial gift from Tatra banka, now making it possible to take in live art for the second year running – to “catch the butterfly”. The exhibition presents the newest additions to SNG collections by artists of the middle generation of Slovakia's contemporary art. Erik Binder, Marko Blažo, Marek Kvetan, Denisa Lehocká and Milan Tittel together offer us a varied yet coherent assortment of contemporary art approaches, media, and themes.
