Galerie Fotografic is located in Stribrna Street in the Old Town. It focuses on the presentation of contemporary photography, including multimedia overlaps into other artistic fields. Up to ten exhibitions of Czech and foreign artists across all generations will take place every year. Both established and emerging artists are encouraged to present their works in often unexpected installations and thus Fotografic becomes a living laboratory of various artistic approaches. To supplement the exhibition plan, we also regularly announce an open call, which is open to all innovative projects in the field of photography, video art, interactive media, as well as painting or drawing.
The exhibition program also includes discussions and guided tours with artists or related film screenings. Fotografic is also an open cultural space and therefore we like to participate in various festivals and community projects such as Betlemska kulturni noc, Fotograf Festival, Noc literatury or Prague Quadrennial.
First idea about the project of photographic gallery / studio was there already in June 2002. At first just an idea, which step by step developed into a full reconstruction of an abandoned space of an old stable under the factory chimney in the historical center of Prague in Stribrna street. Gallery space, finished 2003, should have served first of all as a studio for various photographic and other art experiments, nevertheless it has developed into regular presentations of well known as well as of younger emerging artists and artistic formations. At present we organize 8-10 shows per year for Czech and foreign artists.
Between 2006 and 2014 apart from exhibitions a festival of experimental movies PLAN 9 was taking place in Fotografic gallery space. New experimental movies from Czech and world artists, as well as film and music live performances, were shown every year in November and December.
Fotografic is supported by grants of Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic, Prague City Hall, State Cultural Fund of CR and Prague 1.
