Art of Recycling
Until June 17
Art Gallery for Children (Galerie umení pro deti)
Nám. Franze Kafky 24/3, Prague 1
The gallerys first exhibition is entitled Art of Recycling. Working with waste materials, the exhibition aims to show kids that even what is intended for the rubbish bin can serve as inspiration or interesting material for art work. While of course everything the kids are doing is fun, there is also an educational aspect to it: teaching children the importance of recycling as a regular part of their life and helping them break out of the current mass culture mindset. The gallerys artistic director is Monika Burian Jourdan, who also owns Vernon Gallery and is director of the annual Tina B contemporary arts festival.
Ms. Jourdan says she was inspired by last years Tina B festival, which focused on recycling, to create Art of Recycling. She emphases that the idea of the gallery is to make it as much like a real gallery as possible. Each exhibition has an explanation of the work as well as a biography of the artists, she said. The opening is a little earlier though, at 4pm for the kids.
The aim of the gallerys exhibitions is to help children in a fun way to be creative using materials that are available in their everyday life and that are seen as useless garbage to be thrown away. The aim is to show them that it is possible to go on using and creating with these materials. Behind the fun the objective is show them the importance of recycling as part of their everyday lifestyle. The main goal is to encourage in them an ecological outlook early on in their development and helps them to break out of the current outlook of mass culture.
The exhibitions are prepared in an unusual way and are centerd on three pillars imagination, education, and interactivity. Top artists create their works using recycled garbage plastic, paper, electronic devices, batteries, etc.
Artists approached for the very first exhibition are ones for whom ecology is an important theme: Linda Cihárová, Petra Gupta Valentová, Markéta Hlinovská, Veronika Richterová, Shendra Stucki and Shalom Neuman.
