Curator: Silvie Milková (CZ)

The exhibition by the students and graduates of the Photography Studio led by Lukáš Jasanský uses both its title and its content to question the common and strict notion of “good” photography and what “photography” means in the current world of art and society in general.

Limits of Navigations

(Un)Natural

Curator: Veronika Čechová (CZ)

The project of two distinctive young representatives of the Czech art scene will be prepared as a site-specific exhibition created with the Youth Gallery’s layout in mind. The main theme of the exhibition will be the conflict between living nature and artificial (unnatural) nature.

5 December 2019 – 1 March 2020

The Road to Surreal Silence

Artist: Alexandra Barth
Curator: Mária Janušová

The solo exhibition by young painter Alexandra Barth will present her latest creations. Re-cently, she has been focusing on noticeable flatness, abstracting shapes, reducing details and suppressing colours – she usually limits them just to the shades of grey and black. Barth con-centrates on exploring the relationship between objects and spaces – both public and private ones in her neighbourhood. These urban images usually depict deserted areas without any figural elements. The artist’s painting style fluctuates somewhere between reality and ab-straction, using abundantly large areas of monotonous colours. They result into peculiar, sen-sitive images that focus on psychology in a similar way as Italian metaphysical paintings and surrealistic works do.
