ALL HAIL SPORT!
- 24. 6. 2016 – 14. 11. 2016
During the twentieth and twenty-first century, an entire number of important Czech artists devoted themselves to the subject of sports, starting with Jan Preisler and Emil Filla, continuing with Kamil Lhoták, Bohumír Matal, and Jiří Kolář, and including present-day artists such as Michael Rittstein, Jaroslav Róna, František Skála, or Krištof Kintera.
ALL HAIL SPORT! will be the DOX Centre’s main exhibition of the 2016 summer season. Covering an area of 1230 square meters, it will feature works and projects by over 40 contemporary Czech artists reflecting their relationship with sport from 1945 until the present day.
The exhibition will feature paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, collages, sculptures, and installations by famous names as well as lesser-known artists.
The exhibition will coincide with the XXXI Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro with the support of the Czech Olympic Committee.
