At the occasion of 25th anniversary Gandy gallery is pleased to announce the opening of a group show entitled Czechoslovakia / A Critical Reader curated by Nadine Gandy and Zbyněk Baladrán. The exhibition will present fourteen artists coming from Czech and Slovak republic.
“Czechoslovakia / A Critical Reader presents the artists who critically examine the world in which they were born. Concerning the generations they belong to, these artists represent the different periods of Czechoslovakia. Political strategies and practice are imprinted on each author in a way how they were changing in the time and how they influenced his or her life. Therefore, their projections differ, for each of them it is a different kind of the disappointment and unfulfillment. But for each of them it is also a ground for thinking about the past mistakes. The exhibition is meant as a research of a social coexistence through an artwork. Exhibition as a place for critical reflection.”
