From the Academy to Nature. Forms of Landscape Painting in Central Europe 1860–1890
Land behind the Map. Amazing Art History with Professor Hamster
The Kornel and Naďa Földvári Library
TEMPORARY EXHIBITIONS IN DANUBIANA:
Oto Bachorík: Monuments - Oto Bachorík is one of the most famous artists of the middle generation. A sculptor with a unique sense for matter, he can bring stone, metal and wood to life and approach each of these materials with respect as well as the determination of a conqueror. In his monuments, as well as in his chamber sculptures, he combines various structures, alternating shiny smooth surfaces with rough and grainy ones, and large robust forms with fine elaborated details. He subdues light and masters time, space and matter. From the very beginning, his sculptures have resonated a tantalizing contrast of the expressive and the lyrical, the real and the abstract. Attempts to define his artistic language frequently lead to limitations in signs deprived of details and even archetypes. Open: 10:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M until April 22. Closed on Mondays, Bratislava-Čunovo, Vodné dielo. More info: www.danubiana.sk.
EL LISSITZKY & ER SIKORA - The main intent of the double-exhibition metaphorically entitled El Lissitzky & eR Sikora is to retrieve and update the thoughts, ethos and artistic legacy of the Russian revolutionary avant-garde. The Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, Netherlands, owner of an unprecedented collection of works of El Lissitzky, and the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum in Bratislava-Čunovo have collaborated on an ambitious and unique project which combines – over time and space – two figures, two oeuvres, two visual and ideological worlds: the world famous master of the 20th century avant-garde, Constructivism and Suprematism, Lazar/El Lissitzky (1890 – 1941) and conceptualist Rudolf Sikora (1946), one of the major representatives of Slovak and Central European avant-garde. Open: 10:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M. until June 30. Closed on Mondays, Bratislava-Čunovo, Vodné dielo. More info: www.danubiana.sk.
Adela Režná: Illustrations - Adela Režná is a recent graduate of the Studio of Illustration at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design under prof. Dušan Kállay.

Cukrové topánky (Sugar Shoes), her artistic debut, was published in 2018. We can also find her work in other interesting projects such as Inakosti slovenské (bedeker pre cudzincov; Slovak Otherness, A Baedeker for Foreigners), Bratislava v sto slovách (Bratislava in a Hundred Words), An Athlete’s Training Diary (magazine on sports), and Omaľovánka 2.0. (Coloring Book 2.0). Open: 10:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M. until June 30. Closed on Mondays, Bratislava-Čunovo, Vodné dielo. More info: www.danubiana.sk
