Prague’s newest pop-up art gallery pays homage to the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution as part of the Freedom Festival. Located at Revolucni 30, the exhibit will be open from November 9 to 24.
Curators Cestmir Suska and Radek Wohlmuth displayed the work of 30 artists whose art reflects on the social climate of the Czech Republic. This encompasses not only the political situation in the Czech Republic but also corporations, the sex industry, and the religious worship of athletes.
The aim of the exhibition is to showcase artwork from 1989 to 2019 by a range of different generations of artists. The styles of art vary from graffiti to sculptures and even videos. The curators wanted to display a variety of artwork to highlight freedom of expression coming from the end of Soviet-era censorship and mediate an open discussion of contemporary issues.
Revolucni 30 will also feature concerts, theater productions, lectures and movie screenings each night. Upcoming events include Theater Night: Circus Mlejm + Cecile Da Costa, a multimedia lecture from Tomas Kabrt, and screening of 1984. Times and admission prices can be found here.
