We are preparing several solo exhibitions for 2018 under the title VIEW OF WOMEN

We are preparing several solo exhibitions for the 2018 season under the umbrella term VIEW OF WOMEN.The exhibition project is being prepared, amongst other things, in connection with the 100th anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia and the associated granting of equal suffrage to women, as well as with their considerable effort to achieve equality in the fine arts as well.We do not, however, focus on "the struggle" for the rights of female artists, but rather on women / female artists view of the world. We are interested in their life and work as a testimony to their understanding of the world, whether they deal with any particular subject and use any method of classical or modern artistic expression. From our point of view, their journey through life, experience, outlook and, of course, novel way of expressing themselves through artistic techniques is essential. In the course of 2018, the works of eight artists will be presented in solo exhibitions.On the anniversary days of October and November 2018 (100 years since the founding of the Republic, 100 years since the death of Egon Schiele, 25 years since the opening of our museum), all our planned exhibitions will be presented at the same time within the framework of a two-day Finissage with an accompanying program. 

 

 

 

 

 

VIEW OF WOMEN

 

Marie Blabolilová_poster 
MARIE BLABOLILOVÁ (*1948)
In spite of its specific minimalism, the work of Marie Blabolilová arouses strong emotions; the painter and graphic artist is able to "describe" time in the simplest terms whether it is a matter of the 1960s or the present day. Her extensive retrospective exhibition includes graphics, drawings and paintings that focus on the 1960s. Part of the installation will also be made up of i.a. furniture from this era, linoleum and glass and the like with served as sources of inspiration, but also as working materials.
   

 

 Magdalena Rajnišová_poster
MAGDALENA RAJNIŠOVÁ (*1958)
After long-term residences abroad (Switzerland, France, Ireland, New Mexico, Italy, Israel and others) the painter returned to the house of her birth in Kladno. Her life, which has not always been easy, has materialized in her pictures whereby the “memory of the places“ she lived in assumes a fundamental role. Her themes are: the desert and light, but also biblical motifs. Her work for the theatre is of significance (Forman Brother’s Theatre, Theatre 58 in Zürich, Taos Theatre Company in New Mexico) or cooperation with archaeologists in Israel.

TOYBOX
The artist is best known for her street art projects as well as for her cooperation with the socially excluded and Roma children; she is also appreciated as an illustrator. She will present a work on the spot that will deal with the phenomenon of Český Krumlov, together with her long-term efforts to help people and animals as well (she is a dedicated animal rights activist), but also with her new role as a mother of twins.

ANNA MACKOVÁ (1887 - 1969)

The exhibition mainly shows Anna Macková‘s graphic work and life story which are both characteristic of the fate of women/artists in the first half of the 20th century. A.M. came from a wealthy family – estate owners in Studeňany. Quite unusually for a girl of her time, she fought for and won the opportunity to study portraiture, still life and landscape painting at Karl Reisner’s School in Prague from 1909-1911 and later graphics under František Horký. In 1918 she met her man of destiny, Josef Váchal; they travelled together, inspired each other and thought out new approaches to coloured woodcuts. She supported the these days much better known Josef Váchal with substantial financial assistance. Their health was seriously affected by the fact that Anna Macková‘s family farm, where they lived during the Second World War, was gradually confiscated after 1948.

   

 

E, obr: 1504
EVA IŠKOVÁ PROKOPCOVÁ (*1948)
The expressive painting of the South Bohemian recluse Eva Prokopcová was already displayed to tens of thousands of our visitors a decade ago. The exhibition for 2018, which is currently being prepared, is characterized by the fact that the artist lets us look into the unfortunate fate of of her family that was separated forever after 1948: the parents decided to emigrate with their infant, but the baby came down with a fever so the mother remained in Czechoslovakia with the child and only the father could flee through the Bohemian Forest. The family never met again.

KATEŘINA ŠEDÁ (*1977)
The new project from this interesting and successful Czech artist is very unusual, yet witty and responds to a remarkable global phenomenon of recent times - the overcrowding and emptying of the most desirable world tourist centres. These places are often historical and architectural jewels on the UNESCO World Heritage List, which are being "gradually cleansed" of their normal urban / rural infrastructure and finally even of their original inhabitants by the flood of hundreds of thousands or even millions of tourists.
   

 

Egon Schiele Art Centrum 2011

Permanent exhibition about the life and work of Egon Schiele (1890-1918),
