Stano Grežďo: In Black on White November 10 – December 9, 2023 at ARTA, Piešťany, Slovakia

The “In Black on White” exhibition focuses on the DIY scene in the 80s and 90s in West Slovakia from the point of view of artist Stano Grežďo. The exhibition features his drawings, including flyers, posters, and music cassette covers. The exhibition is also complemented by photos from this period.

The exhibition begins chronologically in the 80s when two teenagers started publishing their own metal magazine “ACCETON”, a hand-drawn notebook that contained drawings and clippings from music magazines. This part of the exhibition contains covers of the “ACCETON” magazine redrawn from memory, supplemented with stories that influenced their creation.

The second part of the exhibition begins in the early 90s when these two friends met again and started the punk band “SZM”. At that time Grezdo worked in a print shop and this part of the exhibition contains concert posters that he printed for the local punk scene. This scene was built with the DIY ethos. Bands and people around them organized concerts, recorded demo tapes, printed t-shirts, wrote zines, drew posters, held exhibitions, and even had their own distribution of these products.
