This exhibition was organized in cooperation with the City Gallery of Prague.The exhibition theme focussed on the issue of how traditional landscape painting genre looks today. The works of 27 Czech artists were presented, artists who drew their inspiration from the landscape and incorporated this motif in their works. Artists of several generations, working in various mediums, participated – a wide range of works including paintings, photographs, installations, and video. The landscape theme was very flexible – there was, for example, landscape in paintings, experiments with natural materials and processes, ecological issues, and landscapes of childhood. Connected to the exhibition, a seminar was held on landscape as characteristic theme of visual art – a concept now widely accepted by new artistic media. Petr Lysáček was awarded the Soros Fund Prize for his work The Cross-Roads (Rozcestí). The SCCA-Prague bought this sculpture and donated it to the City Gallery of Prague collection.
