The main objective of the organisers of this event, is to mediate direct contact between the works of art and the audience as it was done in previous years.

The opportunity of barrier-free communication cultivates a relationship to art and refines aesthetic feeling and the spectator’s awareness.

The sculptures exhibited in the public spaces create unusual local colour and a unique atmosphere, enriching the chances of cultural self-realisation of the inhabitants of and visitors to Bratislava.

International co-operation offers an opportunity to learn more about other cultures through art as the universal medium of communication.

This event was first held in the streets, squares and courtyards of Bratislava in 1996 and gradually a small exhibition of several Slovak artists has expanded into an important and prestigious international event and has become an inseparable part of Bratislava cultural activities in the summer.

It is one of the few events in the field of visual arts, held annually in Slovakia.

Sculpture and Object has expanded into an important and prestigious international event and has become an inseparable part of the culture activities in the summer.

The large variety of artists represented at this exhibitions is not a survey of the art scene, but a valuable aesthetic experience for a wide range of spectators and art admirers.

Sculpture and Object  represents several generations of artists. It presents the works of major artists as well as the protagonists of the middle generation and emerging artists from various countries.

Every summer quality art and distinguished artistic figures from all over the world come together for this event.
