SNG Bratislava

Slovak National Gallery in Bratislava Slovak National Gallery in Bratislava

Exhibitions are held at Esterházy Palace by the river, the SNG’s only gallery space at the moment. This Neo-Renaissance residential house from the 19th century was reconstructed for the Gallery’s needs and was originally designated for short-term exhibitions. At the Berlinka gallery cafe you can attend presentations of the works of contemporary artists, exhibition openings, book launches, film screenings and literary festivals while sipping coffee or enjoying a good meal. The Ex Libris bookshop offers a wide selection of art-history books, quality Slovak fiction, children’s books and sundries.

Exhibition will last 42 days

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

Generation 909,76. Exhibition, Term, Interpretation Generation 909,76. Exhibition, Term, Interpretation Esterházyho palác
Exhibition will last 190 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.

The mission of the experimental expositions is to present further content along with the collections in a wider cultural context and to provide a space for cultural experiments.

The Kornel and Naďa Földvári Library is a project dedicated to Slovak writer, satirist, art and literary critic, book collector and translator, Kornel Földvári. Preparations started together with Peter Krištúfek, writer and director, who for a long time has searched for a method of preserving Földvári's large collection of books.

The general public does not need to be reminded of the fact that the Slovak National Gallery manages the estate of conceptual artist Július Koller (1939 - 2007) (thanks to the generosity of Květa Fulierová). Koller has been omnipresent in recent years of SNG productions.

Július Koller, the icon of the conceptual art of Central Europe, has the first exposition of his very own. You can find it on Zámočnícka Street No. 13 in Bratislava.

Upcoming exhibitions

Oh, That Dress! Oh, That Dress!
Esterházyho palác
Exhibition starts in 92 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.

„When she was small, she imagined what it would be like if she could lie down in a tin mould and have her body grow into the shape she wanted herself to be. It was not into the shape of her mother, a woman.“
