Květa and Jitka Válovy – A Path Destined by Fate

The exhibition A Path Destined by Fate will present the life’s work of twin sisters Květa and Jitka Válová, two outstanding figures of Czech modern art, on the centenary of their birth. Selected works from the Válová sisters’ estate that was donated to the GASK collection in 2021 will form a key feature of the exhibition, which is conceived as a symbolic ‘pilgrimage’ divided into twelve thematic areas (reality, parallel lives, slaughter, struggle, burden, confinement, journey, conversation, touch, reconciliation, harmony, transformation). Following this ‘pilgrimage’, viewers can experience the Válová sisters’ profound testimony to both the drama and intimacy of human existence expressed in monumental canvases as well as in close-up drawings, sketches and prints.
