The largest joint exhibition of Stanislav Libenský, Jaroslava Brychtová, and Dale Chihuly in the Czech Republic presents their work - glass objects, drawings and paintings, as well as some previously unpublished archival materials. It is an homage to an extraordinary story of mutual respect, professional support, and personal friendship, which was born in the difficult times of the Normalization and has endured for an unbelievable 50 years.
Captivated by Stanislav Libenský and Jaroslava Brychtová’s magnificent architectural installation of cast glass, which he had seen at the EXPO 67 World’s Fair in Montreal, the young Dale Chihuly decided to visit the artists in their at the time Communist-governed country.
