5KV / 5 Years of Art and Design in Kvalitář Gallery



5 Years of Art and Design in Kvalitář Gallery


Opening on Thursday, 5 October 2017 at 7 p. m.
6. 10. – 22. 11. 2017


The exhibition „5KV“ deals with the issue of interconnection between art and design and will feature selected examples documenting the specific principles. It will be divided into two parts, the first of which will present the works of artists whose work touches both disciplines, albeit in a different way, whether from the point of view of philosophy, aesthetics or even the practice as such. The second part will be devoted to a specific example from history, in which the actual merging of design and art occurred, namely the dialogue between Alessandro Mendini and Milan Knížák.
