Exhibition Hall Sokolská 26


Exhibition Hall Sokolská 26, which is run by the Centre for Culture and Education Moravian Ostrava, contributory organization of the City District Moravian Ostrava and Přívoz, started its activities in 1993. As its name suggests it is located on avenue Sokolská 26 on the first floor of a historic villa. Its dramaturgy presents significant and indisputable art personalities that create and uphold the concept of the contemporary Czech art scene. Not only works by many leading Czech and foreign artists are presented there but also group exhibitions of mostly young artists from different regions are organised here. The curator of the exhibitions is Ing. Milan Weber.

Current exposition:

A wonderful author born in this region belongs to the very important generation of the 80s.  His works feature on many levels – ranging from land-art and action art – over to painting, drawing, graphics, photography, videos and installations. Usually he artistically reacts to natural elements – currently he is involved in painting using the wind or water, touch-free painting, digital landscape painting and others. This exhibition has the ambition to remind us of the author in the year of his anniversary.
