100 Years of Czech and Slovak Design

The mosaic of the works of most renowned artists and artistic epochs entitled 100 Years of Czech and Slovak Design was opened on October 15 in the Taipei Museum of Design. Curators Sasson Kung and Joe Chang created under the auspices of the Taiwan Design Center and in close cooperation with the Moravian Gallery in Brno an exhibition sensitively installed, of great informational value and truly beautiful. The venue is more than suitable – the Taipei Museum of Design is part of the large industrial-art complex based in the premises of the former Japanese tobacco factory, the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park.

Curators Sasson Kung and Joe Chang created under the auspices of the Taiwan Design Center and in close cooperation with the Moravian Gallery in Brno an exhibition sensitively installed, of great informational value and truly beautiful. The venue is more than suitable – the Taipei Museum of Design is part of the large industrial-art complex based in the premises of the former Japanese tobacco factory, the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park.

The exhibition displays books, posters and magazines into thematic sections based upon most representative figures like Alfons Mucha, Vojtěch Preissig, Ladislav Sutnar, Karel Teige or Květa Pacovská. The print-outs and materials look fabulous, especially with the 80 years old factory headquarters in the background.

The effort of the curators Kung and Chang to bring Czech and Slovak design closer to the people of Taipei is not only this exhibition, which will last all the way to the middle of February. The curator of the Moravian Gallery in Brno Marta Sylvestrová, who participated on the exhibition realization process, will deliver a lecture on December 1. Another significant guest invited by the Taiwan Design Center is the world famous graphic designer Radim Peško. His solo exhibition will be on display from November 3 to December 2 in Not Just Library – the premises neighbouring with the 100 years exhibition, and he shall deliver a speech and lead workshops as well. Respective to time, the final part of the entire project will be the exhibition Most Beautiful Czech Books, which is to introduce a collection of appraised books from the graphic perspective lent by the National Literary Museum and also by CECO, and which can be visited since January 8 till February 3, 2019.

We proudly collaborated on such a complex cultural initiative, and we cordially invite you to the exhibitions and all accompanying events.
