Juraj Starovecký - Abandoned nest
02 Aug 2019 – 08 Sep 2019
First idea about the project of photographic gallery / studio was there already in June 2002. At first just an idea, which step by step developed into a full reconstruction of an abandoned space of an old stable under the factory chimney in the historical center of Prague in Stribrna street. Gallery space, finished 2003, should have served first of all as a studio for various photographic and other art experiments, nevertheless it has developed into regular presentations of well known as well as of younger emerging artists and artistic formations. At present we organize 7-10 shows per year for Czech and foreign artists.
From 2006 apart from exhibitions a festival of experimental movies PLAN 9 is taking place in Fotografic gallery space. This event is growing each year considerably. New experimental movies from Czech and world artists as well as film and music live performances are shown every year in November and December. More information about Plan9 Festival here.
Fotografic is supported by grants of Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic, Prague City Hall, State Cultural Fund of CR, Prague 1, Foundation for Contemporary Arts Prague and Gestor.
