The exhibition marks the opening of the new gallery’s venue in the Baroque Schönkirch Palace in Prague’s Mikulandská Street.
Zdeněk Sklenář chose this historical building at Mikulandská No. 7 as the home for his new gallery, which is officially opening this week with the exhibition “1685 Days and Nights”. Visitors are able to see such works as Jan Zrzavy’s rarely exhibited 1931 painting “Preaching in a Small Town”, Emil Filla’s “Still Life”, several works by Kupka (including his Andrée from 1908), and the art of leading Chinese painters, such as Wang Guangyi and Zhang Xiaogang, both of whose works are extensively covered in an exhibition planned by the Prague City Gallery for next year.
The installation design for the exhibition bears the signature of the painter Jan Merta as well as that of Pleskot. Together, they created a common dialogue: “The dramaturgy behind the selection of the exhibited works reflects our artistic discussion, during which we decided we wanted to achieve an effect where old art spontaneously comes face to face with that of the present day, and where both co-exist in this beautiful space.”
