Interior gallery of area up to 200 m2
A contemporary spacious gallery with sensitively designed lighting, unusually high ceilings and built-in audiovisual technology which allows for both traditional photography exhibitions, and also multimedia projects. The area is also designed for exhibiting larger sculptures and installations, and as such it does not focus only on photography, and will also seek opportunities from conceptual artists. The exhibition space, which takes up the largest area in the whole project, links directly to a café and outdoor gallery.
The Czech Photo Centre has a specific programme of events, flexibly covering developments in the field, reaching out to photographers, professionals and the general public, and it can be planned long in advance. It includes 4 publishing/exhibition series – the title of each series indicates not just the particulars of that series, but also the identity of the organiser.
Series 1: THE BEST OF CZECH PRESS PHOTO
This series is based on the fact that the ‘Czech Press Photo’ brand is established, generally well-known and attractive, that Czech Photo o.p.s. is not just the organiser of the contest, but also holds an archive dating back over 20 years which it works with and to which it provides access for the public under the title ‘The Best of …’. In principle, this involves updated cross-sections of topical categories or parts thereof.
