František Skála Has Built His Own Museum World
Versatile artist František Skála has created in the Waldstein Riding School a museum composed of several smaller museums linked by the motif of light. In his Riding School the artist takes us on a walk through a metaphysical landscape of strange architecture and striking sculptures, through which he aims to communicate to us his world-view.
František Skála was a member of group The Stubborn, whose playful postmodernism is still reflected in his work and mixed with elements of folk art and Art Brut. Drawing inspiration from the material itself, Skála creates sculptures, assemblages, paintings, moving objects, light installations, weapons, guitars and photographs, as well as engaging in many other branches of art.
You can visit the exhibition František Skála: Riding School from 10 March to 3 September 2017 in the Waldstein Riding School of the National Gallery, daily except Mondays from 10 am to 6 pm. The exhibition was created with the support of The Pudil Family Foundation.
The Pudil Family Foundation is an open non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the understanding and appreciation of Czech and international modern and contemporary art through the realization of innovative exhibitions, research and educational projects.
