Another exhibition, Central European Encounters, brings together art from Austria and the Czech Republic. Participating painters and ceramicists from the two countries were asked to use the themes of motion and stasis in their work. The display can be seen in the City Museum in the western Slovak city of Pezinok until September 10 (Štefánikova 1, Mon-Fri 10:00 to 18:00, Sat and Sun 10:00 to 16:00).
The show Sculpture and Object, which opens on June 26 in Bratislava, is yet another opportunity for Austrian artists to exhibit their works in Slovakia. Contemporary art by Slovak, Austrian, and international artists can be seen in five outdoor and indoor venues throughout the city: the Grassalkovich Garden of the Presidential Palace, the Komart Gallery (Zámočnícka 8), the interior and courtyard of Pálffy Palace (Panská 19), the Z Gallery (Ventúrska 9), and in the Michalský dvor Gallery (Michalská 3). The displays are open throughout the summer until August 31. For opening times check with the respective venues.
Last but not least is the show Posters from Vienna. The display presents posters from the 19th and 20th centuries as well as contemporary graphic design works from the city that considers itself the "capital of posters". All the works on display bear witness to the rich cultural life in the city and the artistic qualities of the posters in comparison with commercial advertisements. Opening on June 26 in Esterházy Palace, Slovak National Gallery, (Námestie Ľ. Štúra 4), the display is open daily 10:00 to 17:30, except Mondays, until September 16.
