We are very happy to present our Cultural Advisor Martina's specially curated selection of recommended Art & Design events in Prague: 




Kristof Kintera: Nervous Trees

Galerie Rudolfinum

Until 26. 11. 2017

Galerie Rudolfinum’s 100th exhibition presents a long awaited solo show of Krištof Kintera, one of the most distinguished Czech artists working with different types of media. A moment of movement, an interaction and a social-critical overlap is a reflection of the interconnection of visual art, performance and theatre scenography. A part of the exhibition will be also a laboratory or a workshop "corner" where a visitor is going to be directly involved in the creative process of Kintera’s installation Postnaturalia. The opening was a  huge succes, so you should definitely check it out (and the entry is free!)



Section d’Or - Groupe de Puteaux: Neighbours in Art

Museum Kampa

9. 9. 2017 - 9. 1. 2018

For the first time in the Czech Republic, Museum Kampa presents the Section d´Or, also known as the Groupe de Puteaux, an extraordinary collective of painters, sculptors, poets and critics associated with Cubism and Orphism, who settled at the Parisian suburb of Puteaux. The unique collection contains 30 art pieces from artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Albert Gleizes, Fernand Léger, Jean Metzinger, František Kupka and others. The exhibition is supported by and prepared in cooperation with the Musée National d´Art Moderne Paris – Centre Pompidou and private collections. And once you have seen the exhibition, you should spend more time in the Museum, the architecture is quite amazing and there are some breathtaking views of Prague from the glass terrace. Definitely a place you do not want to miss.
