Selection of the Nitra Gallery’s Acquisitions (2011 — 2016)

The exhibition presents a selection of acquisitions for the Nitra Gallery’s collection...

The exhibition presents a selection of acquisitions for the Nitra Gallery’s collection fund that have been made over the past five years. The gallery has managed to acquire 184 collectibles over this period of time. All of the acquired artworks are presented to the public in the form of exhibitions, research projects and cultural and educational activities of the gallery. The representative collection stimulates numerous loans of the artworks to both domestic and foreign galleries (for instance, the works of Milan Adamčiak, Martin Piaček, Karol Pichler, Peter Meluzin, Pavla Sceranková or Jana Želibská). By presenting the acquisitions, the gallery wants to outline the way it works with the collection fund. Visitors can admire the artworks of established artists of the older generation as well as the younger ones who have already found their place on the art scene. The goal of the gallery is to acquire pieces by artists whose work is represented either minimally or is totally absent from the collection. This way, the institution is able to create a representative collection of domestic artwork of the 20th century until today whose importance is relevant within the context of the Central European art scene. The current selection presents artworks that have never been displayed before or they have been displayed only minimally.


The project was created with the financial support of the Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic and its grant system and the Slovak Arts Council.
