Lucia Gregorová

curator in residence October 2016, Slovakia /


My field of interest lies mainly in the area of Pop Art tendencies, gender issues and Conceptual Art of the 1960s and 1970s. I am very interesting in specifica of the Central European art with the background of the dominant narratives in the generally canonized history of the Western art. I am planning two international exhibitions and publications concentrating on the art of the 1960s and 1970s and one thematic curatorial show concerning the contemporary European art. The residency in Vienna is a great benefit for my work in these projects.
