Immediate Temples

2nd March – 11th June 2017
MUSEUM OF MODERN ART | SALON, CABINET 

Revolt was a basic motif of artistic expression in the 1960s and today it is generally referred to as Action Art. In their protests against the commercialization of art, artists left galleries and performed various actions in the streets, on alternative premises and in the countryside.  In most cases, photo documentation is all that remains of such transient actions. We boast the third largest collection of Performance Art in the Czech Republic. The exhibition Immediate Temples will present selected works from our collection.
