Kunsthalle Praha is opening to the public on 22 February 2022.
The major new not-for-profit organization will be dedicated to bringing new perspectives on Czech and international art of the 20th and 21st centuries to a wide audience, and to creating an open, interdisciplinary space for the exchange of ideas and knowledge.
Its inaugural exhibition titled Kinetismus: 100 Years of Electricity in Art, will be on view through 20 June 2022, and will explore how electricity has transformed artistic practice from the start of the 20th century to the present day.
Set to become a highlight of the city’s urban and cultural landscape, the major new not-for-profit, and non-governmental institution, established by the Pudil Family Foundation, will offer a dynamic programme of short-term exhibitions aiming to connect modern and contemporary Czech and international art and innovative educational activities. Designed by Czech architecture studio Schindler Seko, the space will span 5,700 sq. metres and include three large gallery spaces, a design shop, a bistro, and a café with a terrace that features views of Petřín Hill and Prague Castle.
