Slovak National Gallery in Bratislava Slovak National Gallery in Bratislava

The Slovak National Gallery in Bratislava (sng.sk) is an open institution providing not only quality exhibition projects, but also a place for discussions and creative values. Besides exhibitions the gallery offers several types of events for foreigners, such as talks in English called Sunday Rest on every first Sunday of the month, regular concerts of old and contemporary music and occasional lectures on various visual culture topics. Due to ongoing reconstruction, the only public space of the Slovak National Gallery currently is Esterházy Palace (entrance on Sturovo namestie) with three floors intended for short-term exhibitions of old, modern and contemporary art. The legendary Café Berlinka is located on the ground floor with the Ex Libris bookshop.

 

Expositions and exhibitions

Exhibition will last 85 days

Arnold Peter Weisz-Kubínčan (1898 - 1944) was born into a Jewish family in the town of Usch, Prussia. From 1913 to 1917 he studied sculpture at the School of Arts and Crafts in Budapest. After the war he continued in his studies in Berlin, most probably at a private academy. In Berlin of the 1920s he could be close to the expressionistic tendencies which suited his artistic nature. Weisz-Kubínčan is a unique figure in terms of our modern painting and drawing but also due to his mysticism.
