Exhibition will last 54 days

The exhibition Into the Wild will present works of (mostly) contemporary Slovak artists focusing on the topic of wild nature. "Nature" or "wilderness" exist as constructs of human mind by which we oppose the "civilised", i.e. human-occupied and human-shaped environment.

Upcoming exhibitions

Generation 1909: Reloaded Generation 1909: Reloaded
Esterházyho palác, Bratislava
Exhibition starts in 17 days

The term was established by Karol Vaculík in the exhibition Generation 1909 - Conscience of the Epoch held in the Slovak National Gallery in 1964. The title reflected the "arithmetic" average of the dates of birth of the particular authors selected for the group by the curator. However, their belonging to the group was only seemingly conditioned biographically. The crucial thing that connected them came from their works.
