RENOVATED – Permanent exhibition of Dominik Skutecký

The aim of the new re-installation of Dominik Skutecký’s exposition is to use the potential of the painter’s villa as an authentic environment of his work and family life. In addition to expanding the exhibition in artistic and historical context, we are also preparing a partial reconstruction of the interior according to the found documentation and features of that period- lighting, windows, wall painting, or creating a replica of the painting stage in the artist’s studio. Instead of a passive painting gallery, this will create an environment inspired by that time period adapted for comfortable spending of time by visitors with creative activities, cultural experiences and accompanying temporary exhibitions.

The installation will bring the life of the painter and his family in the villa closer to the gallerygoer by creating thematic rooms: ITALIAN ART HALL (Venetian period of the painter), SALON (Banská Bystrica period, salon and portrait work), STUDIO (painting program and technology), OFFICE (family history and creations of the children; space for temporary exhibitions), WINTER GARDEN (relaxation area and creative activities).
