The exhibition entitled SIGNAL will introduce one of the crucial tendencies present in modern and contemporary Slovak art. It will focus on the origination of and the developments in Conceptual and Post-Conceptual Art from the horizon of the past fifty years in Slovakia, i.e. from the alternative unofficial scene of the 1960s as far as to the legal artistic platform after 1989.

T., Rudo Sikora, Pavla Sceranková, Peter Rónai and Jaro Varga, will acquaint with the individual forms of conceptual artistic morphology as it was moulded by the transforming, new aesthetic criteria with their intrinsic codes.
