The exhibition in Pilsen’s 13 gallery charts the work of the studio from Aleš Najbrt’s beginnings in the early 1980s through his art direction of the magazines Reflex and Raut to the multiplication of his artistic identity after 1994 and gradual establishment of successor approaches of Zuzana Lednická or Marek Pistora. Some of the works have become common property or took on a social dimension beyond the framework of the assignment. The installation has therefore stepped out of the walls into space and the standardised format of a white T-shirt has become the basis of the exhibition. The show thus not only confronts the viewers with the issue of a graphic solution, an ingenious visual shortcut, composition or style, but especially with the question whether they would like to wear this on their chests, in the street, or perhaps only as a night shirt.
Concept, selection & texts: Michal Nanoru, graphic design: Marek Pistora, exhibition design: Lenka Míková Architekti.
