Art has moved to Humpolec!

Zone 8smička in Humpolec aims at blurring out differences between the city centre and the outskirts. The industrial area located half way between Prague and Brno has undertaken a major transformation into a cultural venue which conveys a visitor’s encounter with contemporary art. The Art Zone 8smička has the ambition to create an impetus for creation of a local community in Humpolec, which would also be open to all visitors from the surrounding area and further. 8smička will show 3 curated exhibitions per year accompanied by variety of programmes. 8smička opened in 18 April 2018 and it is administered by 8smička Foundation.

Our return to the work of Bohuslav Reynek (graphic artist-poet-translator) is quoted by two basic tones of his work and his experience of the world – anxiety and tenderness. We attempt to extend our views of Reynek’s graphic and drawing work, its existential distress and compassionate touches, with insights, dialogues and encounters with several related artists – ranging from generational comrades to contemporary artists. Even in his lifetime, Bohuslav Reynek was no withdrawn loner, but an important contemporary who was connected to current French, German and Austrian cultures.  In our exhibition, Bohuslav Reynek is joined by twelve artists from different parts of the world – France, Austria, Germany, Hungary, Romania, China and, of course, the Czech Republic. Each with their own unique artistic tone. For the first time in the Czech Republic, thanks to Reynek, we can meet with the works by Balthus or Silke Otto-Knapp.
