Exhibition programme of the central gallery area of the House of Arts in Ústí nad Labem is focused on presenting significant artists and remarkable artistic trends of present-day, primarily Central European visual art. Seven projects will be introduced every year – from solo exhibitions to thematic group presentations.
In 2017, the framework of the exhibition programme will reflect underlying processes within a current social context, which represent changes in socio-cultural and political climate of Central Europe. These changes originate in insufficient reflection of historical context, as well as from actions formed by global environment.
The head curator of the House of Arts in Ústí nad Labem is Michal Koleček, who works on realisations of individual exhibition projects in cooperation with invited freelance curators or with curators who represent not only local professional institutes, but also partner institutions, primarily foreign.
