The ALL HAIL SPORT! exhibition presents sports-related paintings, sculptures, installations, collages, and drawings by more than sixty Czech artists from 1945 until the present day, featuring both well-known and lesser-known names.
When the first Olympic Games took place in Athens 120 years ago, their founder, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, inspired by the tradition of the ancient Olympic Games, wanted to include not only athletic disciplines, but to combine sport and art. The seven Olympics between the years 1912 and 1948 even had art contests in which artists “competed” in the categories of architecture, literature, painting, and sculpture. /DOX/
