The exhibition mapping the cooperation of Palo Macho with several generations of Slovak personalities of visual art (Ivan Csudai, Rudolf Fila, Ľudovít Fulla, Jana Hojstričová, Jozef Jankovič, Svätopluk Mikyta, Laco Teren).

Palo Macho has devoted himself to cooperation with various Slovak artists for almost 14 years. At the beginning of the project, there was the cooperation with Laco Teren, a painter, which gave rise to four monumental circles. It began at the symposium Cut onto the Country 2 in the Orava Gallery in Dolný Kubín in 2002. In 2003 the cooperation with the painter Rudolf Fila, famous for his overpaintings, took place. The project Fragments (from Fulla) was created in 2004; it was prepared and exhibited in Ľudovít Fulla Gallery in Ružomberok (2014). The fourth project was a common one of Palo Macho and Jana Hojstričová. The photographer Jana Hojstričová prepared a series of authorial photographs and those were subsequently transferred by Macho onto glass. In 2012 he created nine projects with the sculptor Jozef Jankovič. The sculptor’s style and painter’s style were successfully combined in several projects, which resulted in the creation of compact relief works which synergized the ideas of both artists. Palo Macho cooperated in 2013 with the post-conceptualism artist Svätopluk Mikyta. Mikyta created drawings directly on glass and Macho created specific backgrounds to them. The latest cooperation includes the common works of Macho and Ivan Csudai from 2016.
