“Of course, we also come with titles that arose from long-term plans and preparations. This includes, for example, The Shattered Layers / The Role of Photography in Postmodern Times or the Exposition of František Bílek and Otokar Březina, “Juříková reminded that according to František Bílek gallery.
According to Juříková, his sculpture and his great personality remain the focus of attention, alongside Chorvat Meštrović, for example, the exhibition of August Family in Bohemia and Moravia or the renewed series of sculptural business cards in Troja Castle.
This year’s photography program appears in many forms. “A specific project is the exhibition of John Wehrheim, which returns to the American reality of the 70’s, when she fled to Hawaii for an alternative life in the community,” the director added.
From April to August, the Heroin Crystal exhibition will commemorate the generation of Czech filmmakers who first presented themselves at the same place in the mid-1990s, such as Michal Pěchouček or Veronika Bromová, in the House at the Stone Bell. Visitors will be introduced to topics of the time, including reflective media reality, the phenomenon of the human body and science fiction.
