Plovoucí svět Clauda Moneta
Ještě do 6. ledna příštího roku mohou milovníci impresionistické malby navštívit ve Vídni výstavu významného představitele tohoto stylu nazvanou Claude Monet – A Floating World (Claude Monet – Plovoucí svět), která probíhá v Albertině již od 21. září 2018 a přináší na 100 pláten zapůjčených ze 40 světových muzeí jako například z pařížského Musée d’Orsay, z Museum of Fine Arts Boston, National Gallery London, National Museum of Western Art v Tokiu, či z moskevského Puškinova muzea. Výstava je tedy velmi reprezentativní přehlídkou umělcova díla, která vznikla také ve spolupráci s Musée Marmottan Monet v Paříži, kde jsou v této soukromé instituci celoročně k vidění práce Clauda Moneta. Retrospektiva umožňuje sledovat vnitřní vývoj tohoto umělce od realistické polohy raného období až k pozdnímu dílu, kdy se Claude Monet (1840–1926) obracel se ve své podstatě v obrazech leknínů z jeho zahrady v Giverny k abstrakní malbě.

VI PER Gallery announces an international open call for an exhibition project in 2018. VI PER Gallery based in Prague, Czech Republic, is a non-profit institution which focuses on architecture in the broadest sense, together with its relations and points of intersection with contemporary art, urbanism, design and media, as well as the political, legal, social, economic, ecological and spatial contexts which help to shape architecture and the built environment. This open call is the first one that VI PER Gallery has announced. The call is opened for architects, artists or designers and researchers, curators, critics, or teams from institutions and organisations of any nationality and country of residence.
