2023-09-28 The Bridge GMB Story of Slovak Illustration
For foreigners living in Slovakia, for friends and visitors from abroad, or to improve your English. Regularly, once a month, one early Thursday evening is dedicated to an English tour of current exhibitions or permanent exhibitions.
Book illustrations are often the first work of art we encounter as children. It is through the illustrations that we discover the world of individual stories. We learn to be eager to discover new things, look for connections, and get to know the logic of things and events. The stories of these paper heroes and heroines even make us think about the values: why we should be good, brave and honest. While the details of these stories often slip our minds, the images stay there forever. However... Have you ever wondered where the originals of all those stunning works are today?
"THIS! is the Story of Illustration“ is an exhibition displaying book illustration work created by more than 60 Slovak authors. The tour was guided by gallery educator Vladislav Malast.
