Exhibition

Dreams Intersect Reality. Slovak Visual Artists in their ownn Words

Pálffy Palace (show Contact)
20. 9. 2007 - 21. 10. 2007
Curator: Lee Karpiscak

The exhibition presents works of various 17 Slovak fine artists, each of who had his own, specific development. What was their fate, how did their art evolve before and after the revolution in the year 1989 and what are their artistic and human priorities? Those are the questions which Lee Karpiscak an American art theoretician tries to answer on the exhibition in the Pálffy palace and in the publication, which is published for the occasion of this exhibition. This project is the logical round off of her long term mapping of Slovak fine art and its changes during the last four decades. She uses here not only interviews with these authors during her Fulbright stipend in the year 2004, but she connects onto her many years of getting to know and research of our artistic scene. Lee Karpiscak tries to imbed art into historical context and also that is why she offers a part of the texts to our older and younger history. Since 1992 Lee Karpiscak, for many years deputy and deputy director of the Arizonian University Museum in Tucson, prepared some exhibitions of Slovak fine art and bought for its collections a representative collection of Slovak artists which practically does not exist in any other American museum. It is her merit that Slovak art in Arizona became quite respected phenomenon.
