ART PRAGUE - Contemporary Art Fair
The core of the exhibition is its regular participants such as Navratil, Montanelli, 5. patro, Millennium, Gambit, Peron and other galleries. Prague will also see the return of foreign galleries such as Bleibtreu from Berlin, Mathieu from Lyon, Art Traffic from Amsterdam, Raum from Freiburg and others. For the first time this year, ONO Gallery from Bern (Switzerland)) will join the exhibition as well as the GSR Gallery from Taiwan. The youngest generation will be presented by The Chemistry Gallery and by Avoid Gallery.
Visitors to this 2000 m2 fair will be able to see (and buy) original pieces of all art techniques, such as paintings, drawings, graphics, plastic art, installations, open air projects and video art.
The quality of exhibits from different galleries has been getting better each year and the programs are clearly profiled, allowing visitors to pick the style that most appeals to them. Maybe that's why the fair has been attended not only by art lovers (collectors, theoreticians, students, painters, businessmen and foreign visitors), but also complete beginners who are only becoming familiar with the current art trends.
The fair, apart from works by renowned artists (Sykora, Rittstein, Naceradsky, Blaha, Rona, Singer), will also present works of the youngest generation - the graduates of Czech art schools.These, being financially more affordable, tend to become favorite targets of buyers.
The fair is inherently associated with its accompanying program and a popular nocturno will be held and Mánes will stay open May 13 until 9 pm.
A bilingual catalogue with numerous photographs and reproductions will present a complete picture of the fair. Annual art magazine presentations are not to be missed; this year it will be Flash Art, Art&Antique, Labyrint and Revolver Revue. The Art Prague's media partner are again ArtNowOnLine, ArtVista and Prager Zeitung, as well as ArtFacts.net.
The fact that this year's is already the 9th edition of Art Prague proves that this kind of contemporary art exhibition is popular with gallery owners, and both the general and professional public. Galleries get a chance to address the general public and visitors can see a selection of hundreds, or even thousands of pieces of art in a short period of time. It is certainly encouraging that Art Prague has become one of the more prestigious international fairs similar to Artparis, Arténimes, Strasbourg and the Vienna Fairs.
The auspices were provided by the Mayor of the City of Prague, Pavel Bém, and the Mayor of Municipality of Prague 1, Filip Dvorak.
The organizers are looking forward to your visit.
