VLADIMÍR ŠKODA: HARMONICES MUNDI

Although the sculptor Vladimír Škoda lives and works in France, he keeps returning to his homeland quite often and Czech public is not totally unfamiliar with his works. However, his work has not yet been presented in the Czech Republic in such a complex way. Prague City Gallery in cooperation with the Museum Kampa have prepared a unique project with the emphasis on the basic tendencies in his oeuvre. In Troja Château, his works from cold metal (especially steel and stainless steel) enter a dialogue with the abundant structure of Baroque decorations and the local natural scenery. A perfect place to spend a summer day!

FRANTIŠEK KUPKA: 1871-1957

The most extensive exhibition of his work thus far presents Kupka´s oeuvre from his earliest pieces created in 1890´s until his abstract works from the 50s. The exhibition consists of different thematised parts, which help visitors follow his creative journey from symbolism to abstraction. The retrospective exhibition emphasises his symbolist paintings, expressionist portraits, colour verticals, his unique language of colours and shapes, mechanism and geometrical abstraction. Kupka’s works on paper present him as a satirical drawer and a great illustrator, an artist interested in philosophy, religion, antics and science. This is a unique opportunity to see an extraordinary collection of oil paintings, works on paper, graphic prints and documentational material, with loans from the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Guggenheim Museum in New York, Albertina and other institutions.

POST WAR ART: 1945-1989

The new permanent exposition of post-war art will highlight two basic principles of the attitude towards fine art. The first one is the perception of fine art as a bearer of artistic and spiritual values. Paintings, drawings, other works on paper and sculptures will demonstrate the links of post-war art to surrealism, the Paris school, and new poetics of modern life. The second one explores the perception of art work as a part of a social and cultural situation. Different productive and audio-visual means will point at some important topics such as Expo exhibitions, public art, art happenings, design of posters and publication, underground art in the 70s and 80s.
