SCHOLARSHIP OF RADISLAV MATUŠTÍK 2009
Guards in residence 
Curators: Kveta Kazmuková, Katarína Patrášová
The Scholarship of Radislav Matuštík is granted to the students of art and art history with the aim to support the realisation of their own curatorial project. The winning project of the 6th year of the project, entitled Guards in residence (curators: Kveta Kazmuková and Katarína Patrášová, students of the Academy of Fine Arts) is based on the Viennese programme, Artist in Residence. In curators´ concept, the programme changes from the residency of artists to the residency of gallery guard from the Bratislava City Gallery at the gallery in Vienna, and vice versa. The project confronts strategies of the galleries in relation to a specific group of museum/gallery guard with their authority to supervise visitors´ behaviour and to protect works of art.

The exhibition that was to be held in May or June 2009 at Pálffy Palace has been moved to 2010 for organisational reasons. Therefore, in 2010 two independent exhibitions will be held: presentation of the Scholarship of Radislav Matuštík 2009 and presentation of the Scholarship of Radislav Matuštík 2010.

In 2010, the Commission decided to adjust the requirements for project submission: now the scholarship can be granted not only to university students of art and art history but also to PhD students and university graduates within three years after the graduation. The deadline for project submission (one standard page plus documentation and CV) is 22 January 2010.


PREVIOUSLY SUPPORTED PROJECTS

Scholarship of Radislav Matuštík 2008
GUESTBOOK. Gallery Visitor of the 21st Century
Curators: Mária Gmitrová, Michaela Truhlíková
The winning project of the 5th year of the Scholarship of Radislav Matuštík, entitled GUESTBOOK. Gallery visitor of the 21st century (curators: Mária Gmitrová and Michaela Truhlíková, students at the Department of art history, Faculty of Philosophy, Comenius University in Bratislava) was selected by a jury from among five projects. As it is a visitor who takes part in the creation of a guest-book, he/she becomes a co-author of the work of art which he/she comes to view at the gallery as a visitor. This stresses the idea of the exhibition that the “recipient” of art may become an artist himself/herself.

Scholarship for young curators 2005
A GIRL WORTH A MILLION
Curator: Dana Halušková
The project is based on audio records of female voices from voice mails and audio text messages of telecommunication companies, announcements at hypermarkets and stations. The absence of a picture arouses the imagination, and the anonymity turns women into persons of our dreams, worth maybe several millions. The project was selected by a jury from among five projects.

Scholarship for young curators 2004
PUBLIC ORDER
Curators: Katarína Hrdá, Táňa Koššová
The project Scholarship for young curators has been initiated by the City Gallery of Bratislava with the aim to make possible and support the practise of future curators. The winning project, entitled PUBLIC ORDER, was selected by a jury from among nine projects. The project of the students of the Academy of Fine Arts (Dávid Baffi, Peter Beňo, Peter Krupa, Matúš Priehyba and Erik Šille) explores the relation between lay public as a potential audience and the galleries. The aim of the project is to attract visitors by the work of art created to their “order”.
