TEMPORARY EXHIBITION IN SLOVAK NATIONAL GALLERY:
The eights - The exhibition project The Eights is unconventionally conceived for the atrium as a series of small exhibitions for the anniversaries of the eights: February 1948, August 1968 and October 1918. The basis of the exhibition is a long, 3-meter high wall - "gallery noticeboard" - on which the visual collages will be rotated according to the anniversaries. The results will be a draft or materialised Pinterest board, a reminder of socialist "noticeboard culture". The collages will consist of artistic materials of various types (paintings, photographs, documents), primarily from the collections of the SNG. The final layout, the conflict of the artworks next to each other, their juxtaposition will speak about the nature of the historical event. Open: Tue – Wed 10:00 – 18:00, Thur 12:00 – 20:00, Fri – Sun 10:00 – 18:00 until Dec 31, 2018. More info: www.sng.sk

Xenia Hausner: Shaky Times - Xenia Hausner paints people, delving without sentimentality into the failures her protagonists experience, constructing a shorthand from daily life focusing on love, loss and the insecurity of our presence in our times. Her works depict society - they are deeply personal and yet radiate far beyond the parameters of the individual. The artist’s large, intensely colourful works draw the viewer into the mysterious world of interpersonal relationships. Mainly women, powerfully expressive, inhabit the stage she sets for her images, women who seem to be testing roles, contrary paradigms, alternative possibilities to thousands of years of patriarchal history. Open: Tue – Sun 10:00 – 18:00 until June 10, Bratislava-Čunovo, Vodné dielo. More info: www.danubiana.sk
Igor Piačka: Illusions - Igor Piačka is an illustrator who likes to work with living models, a true rarity in our country. His illustrations beautifully portray emotions and more often have a deep meaning.

Open: Tue – Sun 10:00 – 18:00 until June 10, Bratislava-Čunovo, Vodné dielo. More info: www.danubiana.sk
