Vernon Gallery, Prague: Salon Vernon

SALON VERNON  

4. – 28. 6. 2014

Galerie Vernon, Janáčkovo nábřeží 21, Praha 5

The new exhibition in the Gallery Vernon presents artworks by the Vernon artists from Czech and Slovak Republic and artists from abroad – Italy, Spain, Germany, Argentina or USA.

The concept refers to the famous Parisian art salons from the turn of the 19th and 20th century, and in fact makes the original vision of the Gallery Vernon happen in reality – putting together Czech and world art side by side as equal partners and looking for links between artists who may never have met personally and yet have something in common. We believe that the confrontation of art originated in different countries and often seemingly unrelated contexts can enrich a viewer's perception.

The first Salon Vernon took place in 2013 in the former exhibition space U Průhonu 22, Holešovice. Individual pieces of art presented at the exhibition are for sale and as the curator and director of the Vernon Gallery Monika Burian Jourdan says: “We have decided to present Salons Vernon to show our visitors artworks of the artists that we cooperate with, but we also wanted to highlight the possibility to invest – in these unstable days – into something that has a high possibility to grow in its value.” 

The works of the following artists are displayed: Jana Farmanová, Lucia Tallová, Martin Gerboc, Petra Gupta-Valentová, Linda Čihařová, Petra Polifková, Michal Škoda, Tomáš Lahoda, Andrea Bianconi, Andreas Kopp, Daniel González, Giuliana Cunéaz, Kit Reisch, Simone Fugazzotto.

The opening takes place on Wednesday June 4th at 6 pm, together with the opening of the photography exhibition by the Russian photographer Andrey Kezzyn in the upper floor of the Gallery Vernon.
