Exhibition lasted 83 days

Working with the SNG collections offers many opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration. With the help of my colleague Marek Gilányi, the exhibited silver mirror unveiled to us the history of its origin. Thanks to ongoing research with my colleague Jana Luková, we are discovering more about its original owner and the circumstances of its acquisition into the SNG collections.

In the Shop Display: Tomáš Šoltys In the Shop Display: Tomáš Šoltys 11. apr 2022 — 19. jun 2022
Exhibition lasted 69 days

At a time when SNG was still chasing novelties and even risked acquiring a diploma project of a promising graduate, a performance Man on the River (2011) by Tomáš Šoltýs (1985) was created. The image of the man, the artist himself, who, as Christ walked, "flowed" on the waves of the Danube, had a nature of an endurance exercise - it was a demanding, life-investing performance. It got noticed not only by the cultural audiences but also by the city's security forces.

7x7. Seven Liberal Thoughts on the Arts 7x7. Seven Liberal Thoughts on the Arts 6. may 2021 — 3. jun 2022
Exhibition lasted 393 days

Project Seven Liberal Thoughts on the Arts, a collective work by curators at the SNG, responds to the flourishing of online culture during the quarantine measures because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Even prior to that, the SNG's digital footprint was relatively pronounced, and therefore under the new conditions it came naturally to us to expand our online range.

You can't buy a butterfly. Contemporary art donated by Tatra banka You can't buy a butterfly. Contemporary art donated by Tatra banka 9. dec 2021 — 3. jun 2022
Exhibition lasted 176 days

Live art, in exceptionally diverse media, is in this period harder to lay hold of in museums than ever before. All the more therefore do we appreciate the generous financial gift from Tatra banka, now making it possible to take in live art for the second year running – to “catch the butterfly”. The exhibition presents the newest additions to SNG collections by artists of the middle generation of Slovakia's contemporary art. Erik Binder, Marko Blažo, Marek Kvetan, Denisa Lehocká and Milan Tittel together offer us a varied yet coherent assortment of contemporary art approaches, media, and themes.

2021

In the Shop Display: Martin Piaček In the Shop Display: Martin Piaček 20. sep 2021 — 21. nov 2021
Exhibition lasted 62 days

Looking at the statue 26 October 1921, destruction of the Maria Theresa monument in Bratislava (2007 - 2019) by contemporary artist Martin Piaček (1972), displayed in the window of Esterházy Palace - it is crucial to realize that we are just a couple of meters away from a place where the monument to Maria Theresa was unveiled in May 1897 and stood until its vandalistic destruction during the First Republic. Its granite pedestal stood there for another four years, without a monumental marble sculpture, silent remorse and a symbol of human vandalism.

Noitibihxe. Labyrinth of Erik Binder Noitibihxe. Labyrinth of Erik Binder 25. feb 2021 — 31. oct 2021
Exhibition lasted 248 days

This solo exhibition of Erik Binder is a continuation of projects of middle-generation artists made for the SNG. Robustness of his oeuvre and at the same time the lightness of his creative approach enable us to present him as a creator within his own environment, within the labyrinth of his own life, where he is trying to orientate.

In the Shop Display: Martin Bu In the Shop Display: Martin Bu 18. jul 2021 — 19. sep 2021
Exhibition lasted 63 days

Several works by the designer and ceramicist Martin Bu (1976 - 2021) could be used as a concise spatial illustration for a dystopian novel. The world inside it went through a cataclysm. Some of the buildings have melted away, scattered with "corpses" of military machinery, others becoming habitat of sea predators. Nevertheless, Martin Bu does not concern himself with mere sarcastic commentary on various escapades of the genus Homo technicus from the position of critical or experimental design.
