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. 12. 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.



Wassily Kandinsky: Circle and Spot

National Gallery in Prague – Veletržní Palace (Národní galerie v Praze – Veletržní palác)

Until 31. 12. 2017

The exhibition of international art of the 20th and 21st centuries on the first floor of the Trade Fair Palace now presents a unique loan. The rare painting is displayed next to the works by Paul Klee and Aristarkh Vasilyevich Lentulov. Wassily Kandinsky, one of the best-known 20th-century painters, was born in Moscow but moved to Germany after World War I, where he worked until 1933. It was in Germany that he painted the Circle and Spot, which you can now see at the National Gallery.





Julian Rosefeldt: Manifesto

National Gallery in Prague – Veletržní Palace (Národní galerie v Praze – Veletržní palác)


Until 7. 1. 2018

The stunning 13-channel film installation Manifesto pays homage to the moving tradition and literary beauty of artist manifestos, ultimately questioning the role of the artist in society today. Manifesto draws on the writings of Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Suprematists, Situationists, Dogma 95 and other artist groups, and the musings of individual artists, architects, dancers and filmmakers. Passing the ideas of Claes Oldenburg, Yvonne Rainer, Kazimir Malevich, André Breton, Sturtevant, Sol LeWitt, Jim Jarmusch, and other influencers through his lens, Rosefeldt has edited and reassembled thirteen collages of artists’ manifestos and connected them through one performer Cate Blanchett.


Ai Weiwei: Law of the Journey

National Gallery in Prague – Veletržní Palace (Národní galerie v Praze – Veletržní palác)
Dukelských hrdinů 47, Praha 7 - Holešovice, 170 00

Until 7. 1. 2018

"There’s no refugee crisis, but only human crisis… In dealing with refugees we’ve lost our very basic values". These are the words articulated by the contemporary artist Ai Weiwei in response to the current humanitarian disaster while introducing his biggest installation to date - a huge, floating refugee boat made for the National Gallery in Prague.
