TEMPORARY EXHIBITION IN SLOVAK NATIONAL GALLERY:
Bazovský, The Photographer - The fine art of Miloš Alexander Bazovský (1899 – 1968) as one of the founders of modern Slovak painting has been introduced in many exhibitions and publications. As a photographic visual artist, he was the first to succeed as a modern artist and modern photographer at the same time. Bazovský was not only interested in traditional rural topics (in this area, he was somehow rougher and more of a documentary counterpart to Karol Plicka), he also focused on a variety of manifestations of modern life-styles: sport, tourism, travelling. He often portrayed his friends, perhaps mostly an artist with a tragic destiny — Arnold Peter Weisz-Kubínčan. Open: Tue – Wed 10:00 – 18:00, Thur 12:00 – 20:00, Fri – Sun 10:00 – 18:00 from Nov 17 until April 15, 2018, Námestie Ľ. Štúra 4. More info: sng.sk.
Architect Friedrich Weinwurm: New Path - The exhibition commemorates the work of Friedrich Weinwurm (1885 – 1942), the most significant representative of the architectural avantgarde in Slovakia. The exhibition introduces the visitor to the ideas and expressive concepts of Weinwurm's work and indirectly asks the question which direction did Slovak architecture take after the tragic historical events and social changes of the Second World War? Open: Tue – Wed 10:00 – 18:00, Thur 12:00 – 20:00, Fri – Sun 10:00 – 18:00 until May 20, 2018, Námestie Ľ. Štúra 4. More info: www.sng.sk
TEMPORARY EXHIBITION IN DANUBIANA GALLERY:
Francesca Martí: Transformation - “Transformation” is the title of the retrospective exhibition of the Spanish multimedia artist Francesca Martí. This exhibition will offer a wide approach to one of the most innovative European art productions, both in the sphere of traditional languages as well as the domain of new technologies. The artist’s work goes beyond the limits of painting and sculpture to explore the languages of photography and video art as dynamic mediums. Her deep and engaged reflection about human emotions, ideals, cultural backgrounds and common universal challenges takes form in a thematic series of artworks such as The Fly, Movements & Soul, Tears, Screen, Crystal, The Wall, Scream, Planet of Fusions, Cities in the Crooked Line & Migrants. Open: Tue – Sun 10:00 – 18:00 until March 11, 2018. Vodne Dielo, Čunovo. More info: www.danubiana.sk
Robert Vano: Memories - Robert Vano’s photographic memories are just like his personality - exceptional. They were premiered at the end of last year in Prague on the occasion of the launch of the book entitled MEMORIES. This exhibition featured the first presentation of the colorful side of his photographic work, which is quite unusual for his style. Its intent was to bring something new to the general public and attract attention to the shots taken with the Polaroid camera that he liked to use in the 1970s and the 1980s. Open: Tue – Sun 10:00 – 18:00 from Jan 20 until Mar 11. Vodne Dielo, Čunovo. More info: www.danubiana.sk


THE CENTRE FOR FOLK ART PRODUCTION
Vlnenie – Wool is presented as the “main character” in the exhibition and a unique material for both practical and aesthetical usage. From interior design to accessories, visitors can see the various techniques of wool processing. Open: Mon – Fri 12:00 – 18:00 from Oct 27 until Feb 14, 2018, Gallery ÚĽUV, Obchodná 64. More info: www.uluv.sk
TEMPORARY EXHIBITION IN KUNSTHALLE
Štefan Papčo: Psycho-vertical - Psycho-vertical is a climbing route in the High Tatra Mountains, situated close to the border between Slovakia and Poland. With a topography of large free vertical loose boulder blocks, it is one of the hardest routes to ascend. The Tatra Mountains also function as Papčo's exhibition space. Indeed, he climbs and places sculptures on the mountains’ platforms, exposing them to today’s ever-changing climate. The carved wooden figures live through and record the extreme weather conditions. Papčo’s attitude is programmatically opposite to any “extraction”, engaging directly with mountain matter and reflecting on what it means to read the Earth as bodily matter. This exhibition pays tribute to the legendary Ganek Gallery – a fictional institution created by Július Koller in 1982 on an inaccessible plateau in the Tatras. Open: Wed 13:00 – 20:00, Thur – Mon 12:00 – 19:00 until Feb 25, 2018, Námestie SNP 12. More info: www.kunsthallebratislava.sk
