Artist Milan Vagač

Milan Vagač

Bratislava, 1987. Based in Prague

Milan Vagač’s current practice is focused on a language of geometrical abstraction. His work is based on typical forms of the modernist avant-garde such as constructivism, neoplasticism, or functionalist movements in architecture and design. An important part of his work is thus the relation to the past defined by possibilities of our memory. He uses the original modernist ideas to define the shape and role of similar current approaches. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava. He holds a doctorate called Project of the Lost Future, focused on the search for memory in contemporary art. He is co-founder and editor of Magazine X, dedicated to contemporary design. In 2011 he received the ESSL Art Award. Vagač has exhibited his works in Budapest (Chimera-Project), Prague (Karlin Halls), Vienna (ESSL museum), Tallinn (VAAL gallery) and Genoa (Sala Dogana gallery).
