JCE: Jeune création européenne
Young european art

Project coordinator: Andrea Ponsini
Curator of Slovak section: Daniela Čarná

It all started in 2000, when the JCE Biennial was simply the international section of the Salon de Montrouge contemporary art festival, first held in 1955. The impetus was already there to take on the challenge: create an international platform capable of establishing a true European network of partner cities to support the upcoming generation of contemporary artists. It became a biennial event in its own right beginning in 2007, driven by the increasing number of partner cities – at the Bratislava City Gallery it is held for the second time. In constant growth, this 10th JCE Biennial now boats 9 partner countries: France, Germany, Lithuania, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Italy, Spain and Portugal and brings together more than 70 artists. The eight artists selected by each partner country are nominated by curatorial committee based on national open calls, that all share the same goal: supporting new talent. The limited number of artists does not provide the audience with an objective and comprehensive report on the contemporary art scenes; however, it offers an overview of certain forms.


Boris Németh: SLOVAKIA IM LOVIN IT. 2007-2011

Mapping of the contemporary art scene creates integral part of the acquisition, publication and exhibition activities of the Bratislava City Gallery. Apart from the presentation of Slovak and European modern and contemporary art, the gallery also focuses on the youngest generations of artists. They are supported through exhibitions and specific periodical projects such as Radislav Matuštík Scholarship (from 2004), Young Painting (from 2007) and the JCE (from 2010). With its exhibition network, residency programme and a website, the JCE offers qualitatively balanced overview of the contemporary European art scene in a free and open confrontation of various art centres.
