This month’s Artist in Residence at Q21/Museumsquartier is Lucia Gregorová. The young Slovak curator is specifically interested in Central European Art, Pop Art tendencies, gender issues and Conceptual Art of the 1960s and 1970s.

Lucia Gergorová studied at the University in Trnava, the Charles University in Prague and at the Academy of Fine Art and Design in Bratislava where she finished her PhD in 2015.

Both in 2002 and 2006 Lucia Gregorová was working as a curator in the Jan Koniarek Gallery in Trnava. Since 2010, she has been working for the Slovak National Gallery as curator of the Modern and Contemporary Drawing Collection as well as exhibition curator and editor. In 2010 she was appointed chief-curator of the Modern and Contemporary Art Collections there.

Ever since, Lucia Gregorová has contributed to several exhibitions and publications within the National Gallery as well as in other places. In 2015, for example, she co-curated a solo exhibition of Stano Filko for The National Gallery of Art in Warsaw (Zacheta). In addition to these activities, she regularly is taking part in local and international symposiums and conferences and is publishing texts in catalogues and art magazines.

The project she wants to concentrate on during her time in Vienna is to plan two international exhibitions and publications focussing on the art of the 1960s and 1970s. Yet another of the ideas she wants to develop, is a thematic curatorial show on Contemporary European art.
