Art often finds ways to show us familiar things from unfamiliar perspectives and to reveal characteristics of objects that we do not expect from them in the first place. Tendencies of the 1960s and 1970s, which are one of our gallery’s focal points, essentially aimed at casting new light on the traditional understanding of art. Free from this specifically artistic discourse contemporary artists often focus on a new perception of everyday objects. Sometimes, their creations thus tend to be surreal, comical or absurd. With «Topsy-Turvy World» we will present works that distinctly show these aspects. Works by artists from our program will be complemented by an exclusive selection of young external artists whose approach is close to our gallery’s orientation.
