The Art of (Self-)Marketing. The Artist in the Clutches of the 19th Century Art Trade

exhibition hall "13"
01/03/2024 to 02/06/2024

The strategies an artist can adopt to raise funds for their independent work developed significantly during the 19th century. The relationship between commissioners and the artist, the relationship between the artwork and the audience, and the market mechanisms themselves were changing. The decisive role of the original patrons was taken over by collectors and public and private commissioners (in the form of art competitions), exhibitions, art dealers, publishers or associations.

Rostislav Vaněk

exhibition hall "13"
23/10/2024 to 02/02/2025

Rostislav Vaněk’s exhibition at the Gallery of West Bohemia in Pilsen does not aspire to be a classic retrospective of what this important artist and educator in the field of graphic design has created over the years; rather, it attempts at raising the question of what is inspiring about his works for his colleagues in the field today? What does the uninitiated gallery visitor see when they look at a design they encountered fifty, thirty, ten years ago, or encounter daily?
