Thanks to the improving pandemic situation in the country, attending cultural events and exhibits is allowed again. Therefore, we are bringing you a short list of one permanent and three temporary exhibitions that are a bit different from every other and are for sure worth visiting.
Salvador Dalí – Enigma
Many people tend to forget that Salvador Dalí was not only an excellent artist but also an outstanding sculptor. And this is exactly what Enigma is about. Thanks to the mysterious atmosphere that accompanies you throughout the entire exhibition, one can get lost in the breathtaking world of sculptures and furniture by this famous artist.
The exhibition was created with the use of a private collection of Beniamino Levi, who is not only an Italian patron of art but was also a very close friend of Salvador Dalí.
Salvador Dalí – Enigma is a permanent exhibition. You can find it at Opletalova street. For more information and tickets visit daliprague website.
Are you not a fan of looking at paintings and sculptures but still can appreciate real art? Here we are bringing you something a bit different but still equally exciting – the Jawa Phenomenon Exhibition.
Jawa is a Czechoslovakian brand which has been producing motorcycles since 1929. The exhibition commemorates the 90th anniversary of the establishment of this Czech motorcycle and moped manufacturer. You will see dozens of motorcycles, cars, trophies from rallies and drivers’ equipment loaned mostly by private collectors. Since the venue of the exhibition is the National Technical Museum, it is definitely worth visiting other expositions too.
This exposition is only temporary and ends on 7 July, so hurry up!
We stick together
Our next exhibition is a very apt one. Shortly after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Museum began collecting a variety of objects that reflect this exceptional state of contemporary society.
The exhibition “We stick together” documents one of the main symbols of this period – protective face masks. Each one has its own story, they are made by designers, clothing companies, custom tailors, and some of them are homemade. There are many masks: for those in need, fashionable, masks bearing a message or masks intended to simply put a smile on your loved ones’ faces.
Would you like to see the current pandemic situation from a bit of a different perspective? Then secure yourself tickets while you can, since this exhibition is, once again, only temporary and closes on 31 August.
The last exhibition on our list is the Vanitas exhibition. The Vanitas exhibition presents death and dying as one of the important themes of contemporary art. The various historical stages of human history also differed in their relationship to death, or to life itself. The Vanitas exhibits a range of artistic expressions, beginning with painting, drawings, graphics and photos and ending with installations or conceptual projects.
The Vanitas exhibition ends on 10 October.
The exhibition takes place at the DOX centre. Dox is the biggest independent institution focused on contemporary art in the Czech Republic. Therefore, if you are fond of modern art, it is also worth checking out their other upcoming exhibitions at dox website.
