Polish avant-garde in Bratislava Kunsthalle

KUNSTHALLE shall bring, from its very definition, progressive, provoking and innovative artworks, ideally with some insights or expert lectures.

The current exhibition in the Bratislava Kunsthalle, Procedures for the Head /Umenie na hlave totally fulfils this expectation. The selection of artists is – as well as the selection of genres and styles (done by curator Sebastian Cichocki) is colourful.

The paintings, photo-collages, videos, installations, graphic artworks, and more, present the contemporary Polish art – or rather its most progressive, creative and out-of-mainstream representatives. They create their own genres, intervene into old artworks, remake traditional techniques – all that to provoke and bring visitors to think, feel, oppose, agree – whatever but remain unaffected.

For those who need more of a clue, there is always an art student/lecturer at disposal to explain, add some information and offer an insight.

It is thus advisable – also due to the extent of the exhibition – two floors of the Kunsthalle in SNP Square 12, including several videos of various length – to leave some time for the visit.

The exhibition can be seen until June 28 daily except for Tuesdays, between 12:00 and 19:00 (21:00 on Fridays) free of charge. For more information and accompanying events, please go to www.kunsthallebratislava.sk.
