Are these two
opposites or are the banal and the graceful
intertwined? 118 artists from 25 countries have tried to find an
answer to this question and have submitted a total of 208
artworks for the exhibition Banality and Grace.
For whole centuries,
the two concepts were separated by an impassable
border, the graceful having been associated with wealth and luxury
and the banal with poverty and everyday life. However, modern times
have altered this perception and discover grace in the vulgar and the

Professor Marga Persson has chosen 63

Miháliková at the ŠUV in Bratislava. Her fellow student Anna
Gregušová has succeeded in charming the jury with her collection
