The Chemistry Gallery: quick history & fun facts
The core concept of the gallery grasps different aims that the gallery is aiming to achieve. For instance, The Chemistry Gallery is a ‘creative institution’ that can be helpful and attractive both for contemporary artists’ serious commercial and professional presentation of works. In addition, there are performers from the local culture (Czech Republic) and neighboring countries (Slovakia or Germany).
The primary aim of the gallery is to create a mutual understanding and interaction between modern art and the general public. Most of the artists focus on the problems and issues of tomorrow, trying to show society their importance and the potential ways to solve them. In other words, The Chemistry Gallery is a powerful magnet for anyone who adores contemporary art and brand-new artistic trends, movements, and concepts.
As of February 2022, there is only one exhibition running – ‘’Green Sparks.” The exhibition presents two artists, Martin Herold and Dominika Běhal, inspired to show their new approaches in terms of painting medium.
Painters tried to discover the ‘aura’ of the past and compare it to the present life of society. To achieve the effect of ‘aura,’ artists used the fading technique, which vividly shows the fading collective memory of history. Did they achieve the outcome? Well, only you can judge it by visiting the exhibition during your spare time.
You can learn more about the installation and other art performances on the gallery’s official website.
