This new addition to Scala’s Director’s Choice series celebrates some of the Slovak National Gallery’s finest objects, a selection compiled by the Gallery’s director, Alexandra Kusá


Established in 1948 by the Slovak National Council, the Slovak National Gallery in Bratislava originally functioned as a traditional Fine Arts museum showcasing local and European artworks. Over time, it expanded to include a rich collection of 20th-century art, capturing the essence of contemporary culture. Now with a collection of around 70,000 items ranging from historical to modern and contemporary arts, the Gallery plays a vital role in celebrating and safeguarding Slovakia’s cultural heritage.

In this new addition to Scala’s Director’s Choice series, director Alexandra Kusá has handpicked her selection of the Gallery’s finest pieces. Each artwork offers a glimpse into Slovakia’s artistic journey and cultural identity.
