CREATIVE GAMES ART / THE ART OF COMICS AND COMICS IN ART

Don’t miss our art workshop prepared by Lucie Haškovcová from the City Gallery Prague. This time we will balance between art and comics.

Overview of contemporary Czech comics and the visual arts influenced by comics. Curated by Radim Kopáč and Eva Janáčová.

The exhibition, which presents ten authors (or collaborative partnerships), received its première in autumn 2009 at the Czech Centre in Warsaw and has since visited a further six locations worldwide (Chorzów, Poznań, Tel Aviv, Budapest, Košice and Sofia); the project will conclude in the Czech Centre in Prague. 

Comics became a publishing phenomenon in the Czech Republic in the years following 2000: they lost their image as low-grade entertainment, becoming a fully-fledged art category and receiving attention from the mass media, experts and the reading public at large. This is especially due to the pioneering work of Jaroslav Rudiš and Jaromír 99 (Alois Nebel), Vojtěch Mašek and Džian Baban (Monstrkabaret Freda Brunolda), Lucie Lomová (Anna chce skočit) or Jiří Grus (Voleman). These works employ a  masterful artistic and literary language in their treatment of motifs from modern Czech history, as well as from everyday city life.

THE ART OF COMICS AND COMICS IN ART exhibition follows comics and visual art at those points that they share and where they influence and blend in with one another, while trying to present an expressive breadth. The aim of the exhibition is not to be comprehensive, but to showcase the possibilities of this unique medium.

THE ART OF COMICS AND COMICS IN ART is part of KomiksFest! festival.

Participating artists: Josef Bolf, Jiří Grus, Karel Jerie, Adolf Lachman, Lucie Lomová, Michal Machat, Vojtěch Mašek / Džian Baban, Petr Nikl,  Jaromír 99 / Jaroslav Rudiš, Martin Velíšek
