EXHIBITIONS IN BIBIANA

CONTEMPORARY SLOVAK CHILDREN’S BOOK ILLUSTRATIONS
(Exhibition of BIB 2017 nominations)
Exhibition of original illustrations to children’s books from which a commission will select the Slovak collection of illustrators nominated for the 26th edition of the Biennial of Illustrations Bratislava 2017.
Exhibition curated by – Viera Anoškinová
When: 9. 6. – 12. 7. 2017

EMOTIONS
The exhibition Emotions presents our elementary emotions that not only are emotions of our souls that cannot be captured. To the contrary, emotions are ancient control mechanisms driving our bodies to act. All living organisms tend to move from dangerous and unpleasant situations to the pleasant and relaxing ones. Surprise, sadness, anger, joy and fear are life’s foundation for noble structures such as a sense of truth, nobility, curiosity and frustration as well.
Idea and screenplay – I. Abrahamfyová; Graphical and stage design – D. Mládenková; Dramaturgy – I. Abrahamfyová
When: 7. 4. – 8. 10. 2017

THE EYE GAME
What can be seen by an eye but is something else? What cannot be seen and still is there? This is an interactive exhibition for children. This exhibition presents visitors with the opportunity to discover perception illusion. Children become searchers and find out if what they can see with their eyes is true and will see copies of works by artists who used optical illusion.
Idea – Soňa Sadilková; Script – Lubica and Eva Pavlovičové; Arrangement design and dramaturgy – Soňa Sadilková
When: 10. 3. – 13. 8. 2017

HAVING ONE MORE WHEEL
A small exhibition on a great project: Slovak animated series with 52 episodes that won awards in Munich, Toronto and Seoul, authored by the illustrator, animator, director and writer Ivan Popovič. The exhibition is a colorful collage of artifacts (visual designs, motion phases, photographs of the shooting, witty 2-D and 3-D objects) and, most importantly, samples of the series. The series was made in cooperation with Slovak Television (RTVS later on). The IKAR publisher has recently published a re-edition of the book version.
When: 20. 7. – 27. 8. 2017

ISMS AND ROOMS
The most immediate way to get to like art is to understand it. The simplest way to understand art is experiencing it. This is the goal of our exhibition that presents a review of the key visual art streams of the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries. Separate “rooms” are dedicated to various “isms” such as cubism, impressionism, surrealism, expressionism and Dadaism. Children can enter the rooms and studios and become a part of the art production of the respective periods. A wardrobe as Degas’s ballet studio, a cubistic mirror and a surrealistic bed-airship certainly are an attractive invitation – and not just for children.
Idea and script – A. Paulínyová; graphics and stage design – B. Peuch; dramaturgy – S. Broadhurst Petrovická
When: 24. 8. – 4. 2. 2018
