This small town symbolized the archetype of pastoral American life. Yet this idyllic place was also held hostage by a dark past, manifesting in the racial tensions that scar much of American history.
Galerie Rudolfinum shares its home with the Czech Philharmonic in the historical building of Rudolfinum in Prague. Galerie is a non-profit organization whose principal mission is to present contemporary art to the public.
Galerie Rudolfinum operates as a kunsthalle, a gallery which hosts temporary exhibitions, without a permanent collection on display. In its short history, Galerie Rudolfinum has earned a stable position on the Czech art scene, and not only thanks to the exhibitions of worldly known artists such as Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Louise Bourgeois, Georg Baselitz, Neo Rauch, and Nan Goldin, but also of the best of the local circuit, such as Mikuláš Medek, Alén Diviš, Petr Nikl, Ivan Pinkava, František Skála, and Jiří Černický.
With its associated program and publication activity, Galerie Rudolfinum strives to present the international art framed in the aesthetic, social and political context to the Czech audiences. Galerie Rudolfinum focuses on constantly developing its content planning processes, always raising the professional bar, with its sight firmly set on major international projects and a fine mix of quality art from outstanding artists.
