Exhibition Constructive Tendencies at the Benedikt Rejt Gallery

Published January 7, 2023

The gallery in Louny represents the constructive tendencies of Czech and foreign artists and proves that quality exhibition projects can also be seen outside the Czech capital.

With the exhibition Constructive Tendencies, the Benedikt Rejt Gallery returns to a significant phenomenon in the art of the 1960s. The works of twenty Czech and foreign artists from the collections of the Louny gallery represent the best of the peak period of constructive oriented work, i.e. the period defined by the years 1964-1973. The artists represented include Zdeněk Sýkora, Karel Malich, Hugo Demartini, Jiří Kolář, Stanislav Kolíbal, Vladislav Mirvald and Milan Dobeš. Foreign works are represented by Bridget Riley, Victor Vasarely, Getulio Alviani and François Morellet.

In addition to the exhibition Constructivist Tendencies, the gallery attracts visitors with a visit to the reconstructed building designed by architects Emil Přikryl, Tomáš Bezpalec and Tomáš Novotný. With this project architects were nominated for the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture in 2004.

The fact that it is worth visiting galleries and museums outside the metropolis is further demonstrated by the Osmička Gallery in Humpolec, the GASK Gallery in Kutná Hora or the Regional Gallery in Liberec.
