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.
Curator: Helena Musilová
The first ever solo exhibition in 8smička, which marks the opening of the new SOLO series, presents Jakub Roztočil, a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. In his work, he experiments with matter and sound, an essential element in the creation of his artworks, as well as the principle of randomness and error entering into the staged process of creation. Most of his artworks are created with the help of an ingenious device without the touch of a human hand. In addition to the paintings and sculptures in the gallery space, the exhibition will also include the premiere of a site-specific installation created by the artist specifically for 8smička.
