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

Anna Daučíková. Work in Progress: 7 Situations Anna Daučíková. Work in Progress: 7 Situations Esterházyho palác
Exhibition will last 63 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.

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.

Permanent exposition

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.

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
Exhibition starts in 87 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.
