MeetFactory, o. p. s.
Ke Sklárně 3213/15
150 00 Praha 5
13:00 do 20:00 + based on evening program
Soirée is becoming a summer tradition of the Smíchov factory. In the middle of summer, when many leave the hot city, MeetFactory comes to life with an art party. This time, everything will revolve around the plant kingdom, which is also the main theme of the exhibition Planted in the Body, which takes place in both galleries. The international group exhibition, which looks at plants as sources and bearers of knowledge and explores in detail the possibilities of sharing knowledge of the flowering world, will be extended only this evening by screenings of films by Saodat Ismail and Piy Rönicke and artist talk with artist Corinne Silva. It conceives cultivation as a strategy of resistance and explores the matrilineal relationships and possibilities of cultivating the knowledge that our country offers. Last but not least, the current exhibition will be complemented by performances and interventions by Nikola Brabcová and Alexandra CihanskáMachová - wait for fire and sound!
In addition to the traditional guided tour of the studios and getting to know the artists and their work, the residency program also attracts to a pop up exhibition or a special installation by Kristián Nemeth.
And then just drink the "fermenting drink" invented for Soirée only by resident Christina Dietz and listen to DJ St. Jakob, or go for a night walk with Jan Albert Šturma for the smells and structures of thermophilic lawns above Zlíchov.
Summer is not over, but there is no need to hurry somewhere - come and ferment yourself in the factory! ♡
