Current exhibitions

Generation 909,76. Exhibition, Term, Interpretation Generation 909,76. Exhibition, Term, Interpretation Esterházyho palác, Bratislava
Exhibition will last 108 days

The project refers to a term established by Karol Vaculík and curators of the national gallery in the early 1960s through the large exhibition Generation 1909 - Conscience of the Epoch (1964). The title reflected the "arithmetic" average of the birth dates of the particular authors selected for the group by the curator. Their affiliation to the group was not only biographical; the curators tried to find also other common features and connections.

Group Therapy Group Therapy Schaubmarov Mlyn v Pezinku, Pezinok-Cajla
Exhibition will last 279 days

Not just randomly in Pezinok-Cajla - a place with a strong association with psychiatry, the exhibition Group Therapy would like to capture the increasing anxiety and slippery feeling of happiness that is being addressed by more and more artists nowadays. At one place, in the charismatic premises of an old mill, we concentrate works reflecting that participative inversion and community ethos, as we have been experiencing them in art and art operation of the last decades.

Upcoming exhibitions

Oh, That Dress! Oh, That Dress!
Esterházyho palác, Bratislava
Exhibition starts in 10 days

The Slovak National Gallery will again be dressing up! In 2017 we presented a broad view of the fashion of socialist Czechoslovakia at the exhibition entitled Nech šije!/Sew Long! We noted the turbulences between fashion and ideology, we delved into the inner workings of the giants of ready-to-wear clothing, and we discovered well-hidden design studios and shops. For some visitors, this heaping dose of garments from the days behind the Iron Curtain brought back nostalgic memories of long dormant creativity; others less indulgently recalled the chafing of polyester fabric.
