JCE- Young european art

Mirbach Palace (show Contact)
29. 6. 2010 - 29. 8. 2010
Curator: Beata Jablonská, Andrea Ponsini


The City Gallery of Bratislava is one of the stops of a large European project presenting ninety young artists from nine European countries. The idea of common presentations originated in Montrouge (France) and for the first time it was realized in the form of a touring exhibition in 2000. Today the exhibition has a form of a biennial organised on a regular basis in cooperation with art institutions and cultural communities from nine European countries: Austria, France, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, and Spain (Catalonia). The original idea of a touring exhibition has gradually expanded and today it includes a large number of activities: from a direct support of artists through residence stays, to discussion forums on current issues of contemporary art scene. The main aim of the project is to overcome mental borders that are, in spite of the unified Europe, still present.

The exhibition Young European Creation and all parallel activities create a dynamic network of knowledge, visual experience, professional relations and friendships that become a visible part of European art scene.

Being well acquainted with the nature of domestic art scenes, curators from the participating countries have been commissioned to select a characteristic sample that should represent and give a true picture of the young art. This year of the exhibition has been prepared by Stéphane Corréard (France), Goda Giedraityte (Lithuania), Beata Jablonská (Slovakia), Sári Stenczer (Hungary), Dietar Grimmer (Austria), Sandra Solimano (Italy), Mario Pasqualotto (Spain), Gisela Leal (Portugal), and Lidia Krawczyk and Beata Nowacka-Kardzis (Poland). The exhibition of contemporary European art represents an intersection of nine views of what creates the essence of the art of a particular country. As each national collection is represented by works of ten artists, the result is a democratic and diverse selection of contemporary art free of both the real and the virtual borders.

The exhibition Young European Creation will stay in Bratislava till the end of summer. Another stop on its nomadic route will be Pécs (Hungary), then the exhibition will move to Salzburg (Austria), and in 2011 it will be displayed at the galleries in Italy, Spain and Portugal.
