Where: Museum Kampa, U Sovových mlýnů 2, Prague 1
Due to the great interest in its current short-term exhibitions, Museum Kampa has decided to extend them by two weeks. Exhibitions of revolutionary fashion, primarily from the 1960s, the lifelong work of the painter and graphic artist Lubomír Přibyl, will last until November 19. Extensive catalogs were published by the museum for both exhibitions… The Fashion Paradox, Fashion X Art exhibition is located in the two main halls of the Kampa Museum and presents almost 100 women’s dresses, primarily from the 1960s. Through them, visitors are told the story of the birth of the modern woman, which is closely connected with the revolutionary fashion of the 60s. We will meet here with short and long dresses, silk, velvet, plastic and paper. In the exhibition, iconic pieces by designers such as Christian Dior, Yves Saint-Laurent, Coco Chanel and Paco Rabanne are confronted by the Museo Kampa’s collection of fine art from the same period. Here we can find the works of Adriena Šimotová, Nadi Plíšková, Pavla Mautnerová, Ladislav Sutnar, Mikuláš Medek, Karel Malich and many others… Lubomír Přibyl’s exhibition presents a cross-section of the lifelong work of this eighty-six-year-old painter and graphic artist. On two floors of the museum, you can see not only his typical geometric paintings and reliefs, but also early figurative oil paintings, structural paintings inspired by visits to the high-voltage laboratory in Běchovice, and a selection of Přbyl’s award-winning graphic works.
