The National Gallery in Prague launched their autumn exhibition season
The vernissage Autumn Opening introduced several new exhibitions in the Trade Fair Palace, with Manifesto by the Berlin artist Julian Rosefeldt in pride of place. In it, the Australian actress Cate Blanchett dramatically embodies thirteen manifestos from the period of Modernism. The proclamations of the Futurists, Surrealists and Dadaists, for example, are voiced by a broker, a puppeteer and a funeral speaker.
Another exhibition Biafra of Spirit. Third World Students in Czechoslovakia will acquaint visitors with the work of African and Asian students who studied film in Prague during the 60s and 70s. The exhibition of finalists in the StartPoint 2017 award will reveal artists who are still very new to the art scene. The long-term project Introducing in the presidential salon will present the Portuguese artist Pedro Henriques and his Fasting. The Trade Fair Palace also opened a new long-term installation of works by František Skála first seen in his previous exhibition Riding School.
You can visit the new exhibitions in the Trade Fair Palace of the National Gallery in Prague daily except Mondays from 10 am to 6 pm. The projects were created with the support of The Pudil Family Foundation.
