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.

 

Expositions and exhibitions

Generation 909,76. Exhibition, Term, Interpretation Generation 909,76. Exhibition, Term, Interpretation Esterházyho palác
Exhibition will last 47 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.

Oh, That Dress! Oh, That Dress! Esterházyho palác
Exhibition will last 75 days

The Slovak National Gallery will again be dressing up! Following our 2017 exhibition Sew Long! which featured an extensive look at fashion in socialist Czechoslovakia, contemporary fashion practice and support of live art take center stage in our current project entitled Oh, That Dress!

Action ZET / Art-historical Undertaking Action ZET / Art-historical Undertaking Esterházyho palác
Exhibition will last 215 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.
