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.

Artist´s (Heavy) Luggage. Arnold Peter Weisz-Kubínčan 1898 – 1945 Artist´s (Heavy) Luggage. Arnold Peter Weisz-Kubínčan 1898 – 1945 Esterházyho palác
Exhibition will last 137 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.

 
Land behind the Map Amazing Art History with Professor Hamster Land behind the Map Amazing Art History with Professor Hamster Esterházyho palác
Permanent exposition

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.

Amazing Art History with Professor Hamster is an interactive projection dedicated to the story of art history prepared in collaboration with our Prague colleagues (concept by Ondřej Horák, execution by Ondřej Fuczik, David Kakalík and INITI). It is based on their previous activities in the Czech Republic.The projection is designed for children interested in art history, as well as for the general public with an urge to learn more about art. Telling the story of art, connected in a series of animated films about the life and work of a prominent Slovak, as well as worldwide-known visual artists of the 20th century combine learning and entertainment.

We have created an environment in which visitors can feel comfortable establishing an effortless relationship with art history through our discreet guidance. The installation is part of the SNG's long-term strategy of presenting our collections using digital technology, allowing us to share our knowledge of them more effectively.
