As a curator, Lucia Gavulová’s main focus is the contemporary art scene and discourse since the nineties in Slovakia and Czech Republic. In this talk, Gavulová will present the Oskár Čepan Award which she manages, an annual art prize in Slovakia with no media limitations for artists under the age of forty, which provides the laureates a two month residency at Residency Unlimited. Besides discussing the discursive-like platform of this award, Gavulová will provide a short but intense overview of the exceptional practices of its nominees and laureates since 2018, and the often adventurous impact that New York has on their trajectories.
Lucia Gavulová is a Slovakian contemporary art observer, researcher, curator, publicist, editor, and organizer of contemporary art projects, events, and exhibitions with experience in both the institutional and freelance fields of activities. Since 2014 she works at the Slovak National Gallery as a curator of modern and contemporary art and editor of the art magazine 365°. In 2018, she became the director of the Foundation – Centre for Contemporary Arts which manages the annual Oskár Čepan Award for young visual artists in Slovakia.
