    Jan Hus in 1415 and 600 years later

    The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Hussite  Museum in Tábor , the Company of Hus Museum in Prague and Museum of Jan Hus in Konstanz (Germany) on the occasion of the 600th anniversary of the death of Jan Hus . Its mission is to highlight the personality of the prominent Czech theologian, rector of Charles University and church reformer. He was a great critic of the Pope and the Church. For the dissemination of these ideas he was declared a heretic and 6 July 1415 Constance burned. After his death the Czech Hussite Revolution broke out, which resisted the Crusades of the Western Church. In medieval Europe the Czech Kingdom created for the first time a model of religious tolerance for different Christian denominations. Jan Hus became one of the most significant personalities of Czech history and this position remained to him up today.

Within the exhibition opening on 29.04.2014 by 16.00 a lecture of the director of Hussite Museum in Tábor - Mgr. Jakuba Smrčka, THD will be realized, on " John Hus in the context of his time and traditions".

ity And Grace

Are these two opposites or are the banal and the graceful intertwined? 118 artists from 25 countries have tried to find an answer to this question and have submitted a total of 208 artworks for the exhibition Banality and Grace.

For whole centuries, the two concepts were separated by an impassable border, the graceful having been associated with wealth and luxury and the banal with poverty and everyday life. However, modern times have altered this perception and discover grace in the vulgar and the ordinary. It is always a great challenge and responsibility to determine a topic and to steer the attention of artists in its direction. For some artists, the topic becomes long-term inspiration.

The jury headed by Professor Marga Persson has chosen 63 professional artists and 17 students and 110 artworks for the competition. Admitted professional artists come from 22 countries but selected students only come from Slovakia and the USA.

Although the globalisation has reached visual arts as well, a number of common features can be observed in artworks originating in certain areas.

Many artists really embraced the topic and have thus found new inspiration. In this respect, a number of interesting works of art from Finland and Norway must be highlighted that feature cultivated colours and perfect craftsmanship. A pleasant surprise were artworks of students lead by our colleague Jozef Bajus at the Bufallo University in the USA. Applying various natural materials they achieved many new shapes and forms. Charged with powerful emotions is a collection of felt ”Babies” from the Lithuanian artist Egle G. Bogdaniene. A very humorous and direct approach was taken by the TXT member Silvia Čierniková and her Spaghetti: Equal Stomach. Daniel Szálai has created a noble ”Crown” from metal nuts held together by bamboo sticks. Ya-chu Kang from Taiwan made use of last exhibition´s wrappings to create a sophisticated collection of ladies´ handbags. Refined and exciting are little objects by Nikola Čiripová as well as those created by Zuzana Martinusová, a student working under the lead of Iveta Miháliková at the ŠUV in Bratislava. Her fellow student Anna Gregušová has succeeded in charming the jury with her collection ”Foam Rubber As An Attire”. Hannele Ollakka and Nina Nissonen from Finland as well as Blanka Šperková have created gracefully banal shoes. Ulla Pohjola from Finland and Velga Lukaza from Latvia expressed themselves with perfect traditional handmade embroidery.

Brigitte Amarger from France and Ludwika Zytkiewicz from Poland who were both awarded at last year´s 13th exhibition, will present a selection of their works in separate individual exhibitions.

In the course of opening the exhibition Banality And Grace, the winners in professional and student categories will be announced.

Participating countries:

England, Argentina, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Chile, Ireland, Japan, Lithuania, Latvia, Mexico, Germany, Norway, Poland, Austria, Slovakia, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, USA
