Slovak National Gallery in Bratislava Slovak National Gallery in Bratislava

The Slovak National Gallery in Bratislava temporarily closes the Esterházy Palace in Bratislava for the public due to the finalisation of the reconstruction of the gallery premices from June 4, 2022 to the beginning of September 2022. During the summer we invite you to visit our branches in Pezinok, Zvolen, Ružomberok and Strážky. We wish you a summer full of art!


Expositions and exhibitions

Action ZET / Art-historical Undertaking Action ZET / Art-historical Undertaking Esterházyho palác
Exhibition will last 93 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.

Working with the SNG collections offers many opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration. With the help of my colleague Marek Gilányi, the exhibited silver mirror unveiled to us the history of its origin. Thanks to ongoing research with my colleague Jana Luková, we are discovering more about its original owner and the circumstances of its acquisition into the SNG collections.

Antimuseum of J.K. Antimuseum of J.K. Esterházyho palác
Permanent exposition

Thanks to a comprehensive monographic exposition of Július Koller you will get to know the personality and work of one of our most famous conceptual artists, whose name has been resounding abroad as well. The exposition has come into being by moving the private collection of Koller′s works from the Antimuseum of J.K. residing on Zámočnícka Street in Bratislava to the premises of the Slovak National Gallery. Now, the best from the original museum, together with exhibits, will find its home in three rooms of the 1st floor of the Esterhazy Palace under the original name Antimuseum of J.K. The new installation will be completed by author′s works from the SNG Fund.

Heterotopia. Recollections of the SNG's Bridge in a digital installation Heterotopia. Recollections of the SNG's Bridge in a digital installation Esterházy Palace
Permanent exposition

Before we open the new site of the Slovak National Gallery, we decided to look at the memories of the Bridge - probably the most prominent and most debated part of the gallery complex. The digital installation Heterotopia gives the Bridge a voice. It speaks of itself, the world around it, and what it heard about itself from others; how it was shaped by the vision of its architect and the history and aura of its location. Everything that left its mark on the Bridge over the years will be revealed to those looking at it or walking through it.
