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.

Šárka Trčková – Secrets
06. 11. 2022 — 12. 03. 2023

Šárka Trčková – Secrets

Šárka Trčková’s exhibition Secrets presents the artist’s delicate and immediate watercolours, small-format paintings and large-scale prints reflecting her obsession with work, her elemental relationship to colour and her mastery of a broad range of artistic techniques. Many of her works are records of the simple observation of everyday situations, captured with an uncommon sensitivity and passion, seriously but also with a sense for playfulness and detail. The silence of childlike wonder, the dynamic movement of playing tag, concentration, encounter and conspiracy, but also fear and worries. Trčková’s seemingly simple yet monumental compositions are a personal and unsentimental testament to the role of mystery and the ability to see miracles in everyday life.

KATEŘINA ADAMOVÁ, PAVEL ŠIMÍČEK – EXTRA / ORDINARY
23. 10. 2022 — 26. 02. 2023

KATEŘINA ADAMOVÁ, PAVEL ŠIMÍČEK – EXTRA / ORDINARY

The exhibition titled Extra/Ordinary brings together the drawings of Kateřina Adamová (1977) with the sculptures and installations of Pavel Šimíček (1981). In both artists’ forms of expression, we can sense exactness yet also danger, fragility yet also irrationality. In fact, their art is characterised by precisely this ability to harness and reimagine polarised situations in an expressive style possessing its own specific vitality. As a result, their work is able come together in an inspirational way despite their use of contrastingly different media.

Robert V. Novák – Collector

Robert V. Novák – Collector

When and why does a person become a collector, and what can be called a collection? What relationship to the artefacts in a collection does the flow of time and personal memory have? Do the nature and choice of material reflect the person and the interests of the collector? How is the status of junk changed if it becomes an object of collecting interest or a part of the creative process? These and many other questions are raised by our exhibition of work by the artist, graphic designer, photographer and collector Robert V. Novák.
