Slovak National Gallery

Welcome to Slovak National Gallery Welcome to Slovak National Gallery

The mission of the Slovak National Gallery, founded in 1948, is not only to collect and preserve art, but also to look for ways to provide access to it, to educate and inspire. Right now, an extensive reconsctruction of the SNG complex in Bratislava is in progress, however you can still enjoy temporary exhibitions and experimental expositions in Esterházy Palace – the SNG’s only gallery space at the moment. Once you are there, don’t forget to visit our Ex Libris bookshop or have a nice cup of coffee at Berlinka gallery café.

 

Current exhibitions

Anna Daučíková. Work in Progress: 7 Situations Anna Daučíková. Work in Progress: 7 Situations Esterházyho palác, Bratislava
Exhibition will last 65 days

Solo exhibition by Anna Daučíková (b. 1950 in Bratislava) presents her work as glass artist, painter, photographer, and performance and video artist. As the title implies, this is no retrospective, looking back to present finished work. The challenge is to show a selection of her complete and preserved pieces in a mutual relationship and connection with pieces she is now developing, along with others that she is yet to rework, finish, or otherwise create during the exhibition's run.

Into the Wild Into the Wild Schaubmarov Mlyn v Pezinku, Pezinok-Cajla
Exhibition will last 114 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

Esterházyho palác, Bratislava
Exhibition starts in 35 days

In 2020, Slovak professional theater will celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of its founding, and in commemoration of this occasion the Slovak National Gallery is preparing an exhibition of professor Ladislav Vychodil (1920-2005), for whom this year will mark the one hundredth anniversary of his birth.

Generation 1909: Reloaded Generation 1909: Reloaded
Esterházyho palác, Bratislava
Exhibition starts in 89 days

The term was introduced 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.
