EXHIBITIONS AT 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

BOO, BOOH !!! OR THE SCARRIEST SLOVAK MONSTERS
Even such a seemingly scary topic can be a way of learning about the traditional culture of one’s own nation and uncovering its moral legacy. Interactive exhibition, inspired by a book by Katarína Nádaská, Ján Michálek and illustrator Svetozár Košický: Devils, witches and other monsters, represents a return to the scary figures from Slovak fairytales and fables as a contrast to the Halloween monsters. The visitors will meet a SNAKE – the good guardian of the home, a NIGHTMARE and evil elf HOBGOBLIN, the mill is inhabited by a WATERMAN and WATER NYMPHS and in the underworld a gang of DEVILS is sitting around a fire with Devil’s goulash in the pot. Children can sit on a GRAGON, meet the LIGHT BEARERS, as well as the witch GRGALICA and under the floor they can watch the industrious and tenacious DWARFS.
Idea and screenplay – I. Abrahamfyová; graphical and stage design –
O. Slivka, story – K. Nádaská
When: October 20, 2017 – April 1, 2018
