The exhibition project entitled Nature and Landscape: Nostalgic Pathos and Utopian Idealism as Principles in the Artistic Creation of the Rising Generation focuses on showing the analogies between contemporary Slovak visual art and the art of the Romantic period. The exhibition demonstrates parallel signs of current visual art and the Romantic movement of the end of 18th and the first half of the 19th century in their topical variety, their compositions and the overall atmosphere. The close association with romanticism gets accented also in the figures of the chosen artists whose life attitudes and thinking often present an antinomy to the majority of the society. By following a specific phenomenon in the artistic creation of a specific generation the show sets its goal to draw the attention towards a new tendency in contemporary art and by that means to contribute to its theoretical discourse.
