A NEW EXPOSITION WILL BE OPENED ON OCTOBER 28, 2018.

The exposition of the 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 70s and 80s.

The exhibits are from the collections of the National Gallery in Prague, domestic and foreign institutions and private collections.
