Monogramist T. D: RePartitures
The exhibition presents one of the eminent Slovak plastic artists, the Monogramist T.D. Since the beginning of his creation he inclines to conceptual expression. For the exhibition in Leoš Janáček Memorial we have selected the "musical" part of his work. It is a cycle of 27 scores created in the 1970s. The author approached the classical stave in a totally loose conceptual way, ranging from spot systems through notions to visual metaphors.
From June 10, 2011 to September 9, 2011


The recently renovated "Janáček's House" shows the original spacial disposition. In the sitting room the visitor can see the exhibition on the masterpieces composed just there containing the facsimiles of the autographs of the compositions, their first printed versions as well as objects of the composer's everyday use. In the study, the original furniture is conserved including the piano. In the modern audio-visual hall, the visitor can watch several movies on the composer and his work and listen to Janáček's compositions.
