Diversity RequiredApril 15 – June 1, 2014
Esterházy Palace, 2nd floor
I'm showing one drawing in a group show called Diversity Required at the Slovak National Gallery on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the founding of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava. The exhibition is based on the confrontation of the historical view of the first academy of arts in Slovakia with a critical curatorial perspective of its contemporary form as a creative laboratory.
From the official statement: The relationships between pedagogues and students, their mutual links, influences, confrontations and multilayered contexts, which are vitally manifested in the work of both sides, represent the focus of this exhibition. Through the curatorial selection from the history of individual academy departments we will demonstrate examples of the forming and developing of these relationships from the master and apprentice relationship up to partnership dialogue while using legendary examples of pedagogues and students.
