We keep going!

Dear art lovers, friends, and visitors to Museum Montanelli,

We want to share some of the joys and difficulties we are experiencing during this global crisis with you. We were very sorry to have to cancel the POWER GIRLS exhibition, planned for April, May and June. More than 20 female artists from around the world, including leading Czech artists, were set to introduce their work as part of this dynamic discourse. Feminist and feminine tendencies in art, presented in the context of their cultural, generational and formal differences, were meant to point to the exhibition‘s common denominator – the strong creative drive in all of the women participating in it.

The Museum’s rooms will remain temporarily closed until September, but we are using our outdoor areas to present works from our collection.

We are currently working on organizing our depository, putting together the Museum Montanelli collection catalogue, and most importantly, preparing our next exhibition, one we have already announced.

We are hoping that we will be able to open the new exhibition by late September or early October, in special operating conditions and with our visitors’ safety in mind.

 

Professor Beneš’ Cabinet of Mysteries

This upcoming exhibition is more than a celebration and expression of our admiration for the extraordinary person of the Czech neurosurgeon, professor Vladimír Beneš. Our goal is to pull back the curtain and reveal this remarkable man’s passion for entomology and collecting. The global issue of the mass extinction of insects makes us appreciate the need for attentive observation of the treasures nature has bestowed on us.

The aesthetic forms and colors are awe-inspiring. The unique collector‘s objects will enrich our sensibility and be presented in comparison with other sculptures, artworks and videos.

The Museum will transform itself into a natural history cabinet of curiosities.

The exhibition also wants to bring your attention to the exceptional nature of the Czech elites, of whom professor Beneš certainly is one, and celebrate his intellectual and social importance. This is how we want to present professor Beneš to schools, students, and visitors, hopefully including those from abroad.
