All art lovers or active artists have been waiting for this day for a long time. Kunsthalle is a very ambitious private project. I managed to get 4 free tickets for a time slot 2 pm. There are still some for 14:30.
Electricity and the various technologies based on it have been transforming artistic practice for more than a hundred years now. The former function of Kunsthalle Praha's building, Zenger Electrical Substation, inspired the theme of our inaugural exhibition.
The scope of Kinetismus: Protected content of Electricity in Art spans the early artistic use of motorised movement and artificial light through to advanced computational models, information technology, and digital art. Exploring how electricity has transformed artistic practice from the start of the 20th century to the present day, four key areas are presented: cinematography, kinetic art, cybernetic art, and computer art.
The exhibition will feature over ninety works of art by several generations of artists from all over the world, including independent figures and members of emblematic groups such as Bauhaus, GRAV, Dvizhenie, ZERO, and teamLab. The show will include the work of pioneers such as Mary Ellen Bute, Zdeněk Pešánek, László Moholy-Nagy and Marcel Duchamp; established names such as Julio Le Parc, Yaacov Agam, Woody and Steina Vašulka, François Morellet, Adéla Matasová, William Kentridge; and representatives from younger generations
