The exhibition OUT OF REALITY by twelve contemporary Czech artists was shown 7-23 September 2012 in Musicon’s Hall 7 in Roskilde.
On 7 September 2012 a large exhibition of works by Czech contemporary artists under the title OUT OF REALITY was opened in the cultural centre MUSICON in Roskilde as a part of the Roskilde Festival of Art. The curators of the exhibition were the sculptor Jura Plieštik with his wife Brit Plieštik Jensen. The exhibition was held under the auspices of the Czech Ambassador Zdeněk Lyčka.

The curators chose works by twelve Czech artists who were mainly influenced by the life in the countryside, mostly at Vysočina. Another connection can be seen in the artists’ endless endeavour to express themselves figuratively using classical art techniques.

The exhibition, which was placed in two halls of a former concrete factory, was launched by the Mayor of Roskilde, Joy Mogensen, and the Czech Ambassador Zdeněk Lyčka. Both of them in their opening speeches emphasized the importance of mutually getting to know each other’s culture and they appreciated the enthusiastic and quality work of the curators.
