Come and let your creative expression be influenced by Japanese art and design. Prepared in cooperation with the City Gallery Prague. ENGLISH FRIENDLY!

Exhibition of Japanese artists Yusuke Nakamura, Ayako Takagi and accompanied by paintings by Jiří Votruba organized as part of of Designblok. On view October 4 - 29, 2011.

The name of the exhibition, Things will never be the same, and its subtitle Back and Around, refer to artists who work with a variety of historically and geographically fixed visual devices, mixing them and creating new, layered artworks,  reflecting our globalized experience; for art has never been an entirely closed entity. For example, we may consider the mutual influences shared by Asian and European cultures throughout past centuries. Another interesting factor is the blending and mixing of visual devices of high art, consumer design and architecture. The exhibition therefore aims to showcase these tendencies through the work of three artists, showing certain uniformity in contemporary visual culture, while still respecting the specifics of the artists’ own environments.

The aim of the exhibition is to work with various visual devices, from the classical form of the image as seen from a Western and Eastern perspective, via spatial objects up to design and architectural devices, in order to draw the attention of the present-day European and Japanese viewer by presenting an integrated exhibition that engages them with its visual and factual interaction. Jiří Votruba will represent the Czech Republic with a series of portraits from the Global Portrait cycle, and also intends to present works including elements of design and architecture at the exhibition. 

All age groups are welcome. Czech language is not required!
