Up-and-coming Fine Art at Art Film Fest

This is the third time that the Academy of Fine Arts and Design and its students have collaborated with the wider arts and culture scene during this international film festival. "Side by Side” is a symbolic expression implying that individual art forms can co-exist, complementing and inspiring each other, and combining to form an authentic festival atmosphere.

The sculpture exhibition “Side by Side” features young artists using a variety of artistic approaches: Kolesá osudu (Wheels of Fortune, 2006), Slavomír Gabriška (SK) – Jelenček (Little Deer, 2010), Enrik Bistika (SK) Mýtus (Myth, 2008), Peter Ševčik (SK) Shakespeare: 66. Sonet (Shakespeare’s Sonnet 66, 2009), Adam Čierny (SK) Bocian… (Stork…, 2007), Milorad Medunič (USA) Liebe Lilly (Dear Lilly, 2001), Richard Keťko (SK)

Visitors can see the exhibition “Side by Side” from 15 to 28 June, 2010 in Trenčianske Teplice’s Spa Park, which for the next several days will function as the focal point of the Art Film Fest International Film Festival.
