Where Have All the Flowers Gone? Exhibition

by Larissa Petryca, on 27 May 2022 10:30:43 CEST

Second year students from BA (Hons) Fine Art Experimental Media have collaborated with cultural association Krajinou přílivu, to curate and organise an exhibition entitled ‘Where Have All the Flowers Gone’, opening June 2 at 19.00, at the Libeň Synagogue in Prague 8.

About the Exhibition

With the support of Prague City Hall, Prague 8 Council and the Czech Ministry of Culture, ‘Where Have All the Flowers Gone’ will feature artworks from School of Art and Design students that will explore recovery and revival following a period of decline and hardship.

Recovery and revival is also the story of the beautiful Libeň Synagogue which dominates the busy crossroads in Palmovka, bearing testimony to the historical developments that the quarter has undergone. Periods of material and spiritual decay were inherent to these developments, in which the synagogue survived so that its space could become a place of lively gatherings once again.

The presented artworks make this natural and social cycle visible, as does the famous song ‘Where Have All the Flowers Gone’, an international anthem for anti-war movements.

The exhibiting artists from PCU will be Asûde Alkaya, Gauhar Ametova, Irina Antonez, Rebeka Csombordi, Daryna Shliakhtova, Daniel Tebano and Emma Valisova von Sanger. There will also be a performance from Eglė Šimėnaitė at the opening of the exhibition.

Professional Practice

This exhibition is part of the BA (Hons) Fine Art Experimental Media programme. In the second year students undertake two modules on Curating Exhibitions which culminates in a public exhibition. Students work together to create an event and develop a public show of their work helping build their professional and practical skills. They also learn to approach and collaborate with external organisations, venues and art professionals.

The exhibition will run until June 5, opening hours are from 12:00-18:00.
