The opening exhibition of the “Aviary” project introduces the work of Czech fashion designers and their approaches to silhouette.

The "Aviary" title chosen for the exhibition project reflects its primary inspiration, an aviary with birds of multicoloured feathers in which the Hyacinth Macaw appears alongside a flock of Little Egrets. It is a specific environment and, figuratively speaking, a platform for the presentation of a motley crew of artists centred on certain disciplines and subjects.

The opening exhibition of the "Aviary" project introduces the work of Czech fashion designers and their approaches to silhouette. A garment defined by its outline becomes a statue, an object; apart from creating the shape of body, it produces new spatial lines of a person and…

Step Back and You're Closer | He Jinweie & Tomáš Císařovský

Step Back and You're Closer | He Jinweie & Tomáš Císařovský  


This joint exhibition of the Chinese artist He Jinweie (*1967) and the Czech painter Tomáš Císařovský (*1962) testifies to the viability of painting as an eloquent medium reflecting the status of society. The artists may be active in geographically and culturally remote places but their works share the underpinning element of intense deliberation on the political, historical and value-based changes happening in their respective countries. In their approach, individual hopes and fates are always related to historical memory, liberating themselves from the rule of symbols from the past regimes only to succumb to new stylisations and self-deceits. While Tomáš Císařovský is heading towards reconciliation, He Jinwei in his large paintings exaggerates the phantom-like face of the changes.

This project is indebted in many ways to the profound interest in art of our ambassador in China, J.E. Libor Sečka, without whose generous support and organizational assistance this exhibition would not be possible.


The exhibition catalogue, which is available in the museum shop, is also published in a version for mobile devices - digital tablets and smart phones.…

The Ph Factor - Photography and Fine Art in the Second Half of the 20th Century

The exhibition offers an alternative to presenting artistic photography based on a traditionally instructive model. In this sense it is also an attempt at critically reviewing the ingrained idea about the relationship between photography and fine art in which the adjective “artistic” played until recently the role of a hub of controversy around which were spun both endless and often fruitless debates, as well as endeavours producing things of artistic value that were worth revisiting.



7/12/2012 - 3/3/2013

Entrance fee:

80/40 CZK, family 170 CZK, group 30 CZK/person


Pražák Palace

The exhibition works as a form of liaison between the viewer and one of the current trends in photographic discourse. This does not prevent it from also being a spectacle buoyed up by the quality of tried-and-tested as well as unsung photographs and works of fine art. Although dedicated to the second half of the 20th century, it is by no means a definitive history comprising artists and photographs that have become a staple diet at similar events. On the contrary, the concept of the exhibition attains its goal by bringing back into discussion notions, themes and points of argument typical for the second half of the 20th century and indicating just why they were so important. It concentrates on areas where the artists fashioned their photographs in forms that evidently refer to fine art and those where photography was completely autonomous and even was…

The Traces of Modernism. Art Deco Ceramics from Moravia. The Art of Hubert Kovařík

The Traces of Modernism. Art Deco Ceramics from Moravia


30/11/2012 - 24/3/2013


Andrea Husseiniová


Museum of Applied Arts

The sculptor and ceramist Hubert Kovařík (1888-1958) belonged to a strong generation of young artists trained at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Vienna by leading artists of the Vienna Secession and modernism (Löffler, private lessons Hanak). During only two decades when he was intensively involved in ceramics in Vienna and then in the newly established Czechoslovak Republic there arose dozens of designs for small utility and art ceramics, the shape of which captured the zeitgeist, complemented period interiors and even played a part on the film screen in films produced in the AB Barrandov studios, such as Kristián. Ceramics by Hubert Kovařík, with their rich décor composed of geometrically stylised floral motifs, became synonymous in Moravia with Art Deco production. They are some of the most interesting yet so far little known examples of art ceramics from the 1920s in the country.

The central point of the exhibition is decorative ceramics and small utilitarian ceramics documenting designs for Kunštátská keramika and the production of his own Decorative Art Workshop of Hubert Kovařík which he founded in Svitávka near Boskovice and managed between 1922-1932. The display will include large decorative vases,…
