|Dvorak Sec Contemporary To Present Czech Artist David Cerny|
PRAGUE.- Prague's newest international gallery of contemporary art, Dvorak Sec Contemporary, announced an upcoming exhibition that will feature works by the notorious Czech artist David Černý. Following a successful exhibition of works by Julian Opie, Dvorak Sec Contemporary will be the first space to present an exhibition by David Černý since he unveiled the scandalous Entropa in Brussels and created uproar throughout Europe by depicting stereotypes of EU member states.
David Černý has a long history of international exhibitions and his work has been displayed in a number of prestigious institutions including PS1 in New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. He also participated in the exhibition Impermanent Places, Seven Installations from Prague in the World Financial Center in New York as well as in the 22nd Sao Paolo Biennale in Brazil. His work can be found in collections in Berlin, Prague, Washington and California.
Included in the exhibition will Černý's infamous 'Shark' which depicts a life-size sculpture of Saddam Hussein in his underwear, trussed up in ropes and chains, and suspended-in a Hirst-like manner-in a liquid filled glass tank. Exhibiting this highly controversial piece, which was banned from two European cities in 2006, keeps with the gallery's mission to present forward-thinking and provocative art.
Dvorak Sec Contemporary is a newly opened 800 square meter gallery in focused on contemporary art. The gallery presents a distinctive program of exhibitions that introduces young and emerging artists in addition to showcasing the works of established international artists. Though the gallery opened its doors only last month, its founding company has a 12 year history within the contemporary art market, and was the organization that founded of Sculpture Grande, an annual outdoor art festival that exhibited contemporary sculptures in the city center of Prague. The project attracted highly-esteemed international artists such as Erwin Wurm, Julian Opie, Stephen Balkenhol, Dennis Oppenheim, Mark Titchner, Sylvie Fleury, all of whom collaborated with the gallery to display their sculptures in historical Prague.
