KONKRÉTNE LETO |Súčasné európske geometrické tendencie
CONCRETE SUMMER | Contemporary European Geometric al Tendencies
Organiser and co-curator: Viktor Hulik
28 June – 26 July 2018
Bratislava | Slovakia
The main objective of the organisers of this event is to present the widest range of possibilities explored in concrete and geometric art. Geometric abstraction represents one principle and an infinite number of creative possibilities. Over the past century, geometric abstraction went through interesting developments reflected in the works of artists, unique mutations, diverse syntheses and opposing forces, formal and philosophical reverberations. Even today, many artists enhance its development in new dimensions. This form of fine art has a rich tradition in Slovakia and Bohemia, where a joint Czech-Slovak Concretist Club was established in 1967, as well in other countries, such as Hungary, Poland, Austria, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland among others.
This exhibition is showcasing a broad spectrum of generations ranging from renowned artists to the youngest protagonists. The international cooperation opens up opportunities for a deeper appreciation of other cultures through the universal medium of art.
The central part of the exhibition project representing the artists from Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Austria, Poland, Hungary, France, the Netherlands and Germany is shown in the Slovenská výtvarná únia – Galéria Umelka in Bratislava, and further exhibitions are planned to open in the Galéria Z, the Gallery of the French Institute, the Gallery of the Polish Institute, the Gallery of the Austrian Cultural Forum, and the Bratislava City Gallery.
