Does art always have to be beautiful? And do I have to understand it? Male or female artist? Does it matter? Can I become part of the artwork? Am I allowed to laugh in a gallery? And why even bother to go there when everything is online already? Do works of art need titles? Is just an idea enough for it to become a piece of art? Even I could do it!

We are proud to invite you to the reconstructed Slovak National Gallery! To guide you through the
new premises, we have prepared 12 unique exhibition experiences. You will have the opportunity to view works of old masters, modern art, and contemporary art in various, often surprising, interplays of relationships and dialogues. In an unconventional combination of works from different periods, we have taken a retrospective of the gallery's acquisitions over the past 30 years and showcased SNG collections in all their diversity. The magnitude of the installations will also give you a sense of the upcoming permanent exhibitions that will gradually be introduced from 2023.

Exhibition will last 34 days

The exhibition Lost and Found is an oddity in the Schabmar Mill′s portfolio of titles since its main research and presentation object is the mill itself, its history, presence, and future, too. The exhibition is a jigsaw of fragments put together with the help of eyewitnesses, relatives, neighbours, historians, designers, architects, photographers...

Have you ever wondered if art can be a natural part of a building's interior, and not just a preserve of the perfect world of the exhibition hall? The reconstructed spaces of the Slovak National Gallery, with their clean lines, striking white surfaces, and unique nooks and crannies, are qualities in themselves. It is sufficient to accentuate a perfect wall or white corner with a piece of art, and a whole new experience of the space is born.
