EXHIBITIONS IN BIBIANA

 

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

 

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  

When: 7. 4. – 8. 10. 2017
