The Festival of Sculpture and Objekt XXI
The main objective of the organisers of this event, is to mediate direct contact between the works of art and the audience as it was done in previous years.
The opportunity of barrier-free communication cultivates a relationship to art and refines aesthetic feeling and the spectator’s awareness.
The sculptures exhibited in the public spaces create unusual local colour and a unique atmosphere, enriching the chances of cultural self-realisation of the inhabitants of and visitors to Bratislava.
International co-operation offers an opportunity to learn more about other cultures through art as the universal medium of communication.
This event was first held in the streets, squares and courtyards of Bratislava in 1996 and gradually a small exhibition of several Slovak artists has expanded into an important and prestigious international event and has become an inseparable part of Bratislava cultural activities in the summer.
It is one of the few events in the field of visual arts, held annually in Slovakia.
