Temporary parapet je „Artist run“ galéria – výstavný priestor vedený umelcom. Tento formát je bežný aj v krajinách so širokou a fungujúcou sieťou nezávislých galérií. Výhodou tohto formátu, je priamy kontakt s generačne blízkymi autormi, nezávislý a slobodný program, ako aj neformálny výstavný priestor, niekde na pomedzí ateliéru a galérie.
Výstavný program galérie Temporary parapet v roku 2019 z verejných zdrojov podporil Fond na podporu umenia. Fond je hlavným partnerom projektu.
Temporary parapet is artist-run gallery (established in 2017 by Alexandra Barth) focusing on emerging and semi-established artists working with different media. The aim is to bring an exhibition space alternative to the standard gallery network in Slovakia, more casual and project based one. We like to encourage young curators and artists to work together. We are not motivated on the commercial success, trying to avoid cliques and opening a dialogue between different art practices and backgrounds.
In 2019, we moved our gallery space to Petržalka, the most inhabited residential area of Bratislava to join three other independent art spaces (HotDock, Photoport and LOM) with whom we organise Petržalka Gallery Weekend – an art festival, happening once a year in June. Our new space is located in a typical 70’s socialist housing block, with a terrace meant to be a boulevard offering its inhabitants a place to shop. For the last decade, most of the grocery shops and basic services closed, due to the competition of big supermarkets. Many of the former shops are now private offices, closed to the public. Temporary Parapet as well as other galleries are fighting the cultural and communal apathy in these areas, welcoming neighbours to visit our events.
Our exhibition plan for 2019 is supported by the Slovak Arts Council (FPU).
