Martin Marek & Iva Polanecká: The Human Dimension

7. 9. — 30. 10. 2022

sound gallery IGLOO
Komenský Street No. 10
Jihlava
Curator: Miloš Vojtěchovský

Walking as a manifestation of terrestriality brings a person back to Earth and allows us to experience adventure with all our senses. The human ability of walking reveals psychogeography as a mental relation to landscape. But  because we constantly have to decide which direction to go, it is also about contingency.

Aviatica in Czech visual culture

10. 6. — 16. 10. 2022

Komensky Street No. 10
586 01 Jihlava
Curator:: Eva Bendová

Flying, flight, aeronautics, sky and space conquering have a rich history, but also countless pictorial forms and meanings. The exhibition will show the projection of the phenomenon of aviation into Czech visual culture between 1783 (the first takeoff of the balloon) and 1957 (the launch of the first spacecraft). The exhibition does not map the history of flying, it focuses on the essential symbols and themes in modern painting - from paintings and sculptures to book illustrations, posters or film and their social meanings.

Štefan Uhrecký – Breakfast with Šebesta

7. 9. — 16. 10. 2022

ALTERNATIVA
Komensky Street No. 10
Jihlava
Curator: Petr Kovář

Štefan Uhrecký is a painter with the rightly tempted (un)confidence in the viability of the painting as a reflection of freely experienced reality. Free gesture, the throwing of the current sharpened form no matter what it may bring, has always been characteristic for Štefan, but in addition to the essential intuitive component, he has a constant self-reflection, a subversive irony; in the paintings he blends the so-called high with the low, they are constructed by their own breaking, the serious is downplayed and vice versa, but not as a whim or a search for artistic tendencies, but a real struggle for oneself

Lloyd Dunn (nula.cc) - The hypnagogic cycles

10. 6. — 28. 8. 2022

sound gallery IGLOO
Komensky Street No. 10
Jihlava
Curator: Miloš Vojtěchovský

The installation The hypnagogic cycles takes the form of a video projection accompanied by four independent audio tracks. The video and each of the four audio sources are of different lengths, and run independently of each other, thereby minimizing how often the same combinations of specific sounds and image recur. Further, the video is often often composed of several images at the same time, in combinations of one, two, three, or more images placed side by side. This arrangement is intended to produce an inscrutable quality that invites the visitor to set aside interpretation and rational understanding.

Miroslav Hašek, Silvie Milková, Pavel Mrkus – Paradise is always a matter of choice

10. 6. — 28. 8. 2022

ALTERNATIVA
Komensky Street No. 10
Jihlava
Curator: Eva Mráziková

Undoubtedly, the year 2020 prepared a surprising life experience for each of us. This curatorial project is a kind of a result of thinking in the quarantine clause. The paths and landscapes of the artistic imagination are wide-ranging and, if they have borders, very relaxed. These fantastic environments are made up of situations, stories and images that do not seem to tell ordinary reality.

Masaryk Square No. 24
ground floor hall
586 01 Jihlava
Curators: Ilona Staňková, Luděk Štěpánek

The works of Milady Schmidtová Čermáková, Jindřich Štyrský and Josef Váchal from the OGV collections in Jihlava will enter into a dialogue with the work of patients created during art therapy or as part of the support process in the ceramics workshop. During the guided tour, PNJ therapists will provide visitors with an insight into the mental state of individual authors at the time of their creation and introduce the possibilities of using creative techniques in psychiatry.
