Personalities and Phenomena

The collection of contemporary art since the second half of the 20th century presents works of prominent artists who were crucial in determining the nature of artistic development in Slovakia.

The collection of the Nedbalka Gallery also includes works by many great contemporary artists, from the latter half of the twentieth century up to the present. This period introduced a plurality of artistic trends and put emphasis on the individual creative act. Different artistic approaches towards painting and sculpture became legitimate and unique, irrespective of the fact that the times (socialist realism) were against them. Yet, the presented artists had the courage to follow their own path and remain loyal to their beliefs. Some stick to more traditional techniques, others constantly experiment and try new methods.

Artists on display: Július Jakoby, Ernest Zmeták, Endre Nemes, Viera Kraicová, Stanislav Filko, Rudolf Fila, Milan Dobeš, Ester Šimerová-Martinčeková, Ladislav Guderna, Viera Žilinčanová, Michal Jakabčic, Ján Ilavský, Alexander Mlynárčik, Peter Matejka, Jozef Jankovič, Zora Palová, Juraj Rusňák, Rudolf Uher, Július Koller, Marián Čunderlík, Agnesa Sigetová.
