Kateřina Vincourová: Arteria
The publication for the exhibition of Kateřina Vincourová, who was the first woman to receive the Jindřich Chalupecký Award in 1996, presents a cross-section of the artist’s recent works. The commodified body and consumer goods play an important role in Vincourová’s practice, besides the poetics of domesticity and passing materials traditionally linked to a “woman’s” world. The artist creates monumental compositions as well as minute realizations which strongly communicate both with the architecture of the exhibition space and with the physical closeness of the viewers. The exhibition focuses on the fragile nuances of interpersonal relations while abstracting itself from these terms towards the exploration of space and time. Curator of exhibition was Karina Kottová.

Pablo Helguera: The Mayfly Conference
This publication follows up the public event by Pablo Helguera titled The Mayfly Conference, which was a part of the Café Chalupecký program series and took place at the Trade Fair Palace – National Gallery in Prague on 9th December 2016. The performance of Pablo Helguera held in collaboration with Czech artists and curators, as well as the general public, had a form of a 60-minute conference dealing with socially engaged art. The title of the event (referring to The Mayfly Manifesto from 2013) alludes to the exceptionally short life of a mayfly as a metaphor of the ephemeral experience of a particular art event; which, however, can have a long-lasting effect. In this way, Helguera expressed the tension between time and experience, which is peculiar to socially engaged art whose qualities significantly depend on the amount of time invested in a particular project.
