The Modern

The Modern tells the story of visual art in Slovakia in the first half of the 20th century

Selection of works for it centred on the most important developments in domestic art between 1890/1900 and 1948.

You’ll discover how art was responding to the era’s new civilizational challenges and social transformations, how artists were reacting to the world they lived in, and how all this found its way into their works, and changed the visuality and expression of visual art.

In experiencing this exposition of iconic works, drawn mostly from SNG collections, you can take in the comprehensive whole or focus on individual pieces.

It includes paintings, sculptures, prints, and photographs, alongside films and installations. Among its features is “non-permanent” exposition: changing exhibits presented every year – the current theme is transformations in landscape painting, titled Land of the Eye × Land of the Soul.
