All about the Museum

27. December 2008 — 5. October 2008
Esterházyho palác, Bratislava
Curator: Vladimíra Büngerová

The topic of an art museum in the artworks of visual artists was topical in Slovak art mainly in the ninth decade of the twentieth century, but considerable attention is also given to this theme today.

The name of the exhibition, Všetko o múzeu - All about the Museum, refers (with a specific dose of irony) to various manuals, as the exhibition represents a synthesis of various authors' attitudes on the topic. Except for works by artists of the younger generation from the last few years, it presents selected art pieces from as far back as the second half of the 1960s, up to the 1980s (V. Popovič, R. Sikora, J. Koller). These artists respond to the institutional functioning of galleries, museums, exhibitions, and curators, revealing related aspects in a critical manner while reviewing the theme. Issues with regard to the relations between artists and galleries, or art and galleries or museums of art, are openly interpreted. This exhibition presents both the artists who deal with the theme intensely, and those who have merely touched it in a sporadic way. A rather frequent target is the host of this exhibition itself, the Slovak National Gallery.
