About the event
Bátor Tábor Contemporary Art Auction is a unique charity event, which was organized for the first time in Bratislava in October, 2018, based on the experiences of our similar events in Budapest and Warsaw.
At the beginning we organized a joint Slovak-Czech auction and offered a selection of contemporary artworks from great Slovak and Czech artists to our audience, extended with some fine Hungarian pieces. Artists’ recommendations and selection of the artworks were performed by recognized professionals in art area, namely Edith Jeřábková, Nina Gažovičová, Alexandra Kusá, Michal Novotný and Július Barczi. There were 45 artworks sold at the auction placed in the industrial building of Mlynica and the income of the evening was converted into hundreds of smiles of seriously ill children and their families in our camps in 2019.
In 2019 we started to focus more on fantastic Slovak artists and include just a few Czech and Hungarian artworks. Our advisory board has been also changed and become international with participation of Nina Gažovičová, Alexandra Kusá, Krisztina Hunya and Július Barczi. Thanks to their devoted help the 4th Contemporary Art Auction will follow in 2021 in Bratislava and we all believe, that this year’s special selection of contemporary artworks provides you with great surprises and artistic experience.
