100YEARS OF CZECH DESIGN

June 1 - July 28, 2019

As part of a project by The Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, we will be exhibiting works in the museum's collection that are emblematic of Czech design from the end of the 19th century to the present day.
Starting with Alfonse Mucha, a standard-bearer for Art Nouveau, this exhibition showcases over 100 years of art from the Czech Republic, including architecture influenced by Czech Cubism, picture books of the Čapek Brothers, animation works loved by many in the world, and many other works that exemplify the unique aesthetics and exhilarating design of the country even under socialism. Traditional Czech industrial and ethnic craftwork such as Bohemian glass, as well as other unique art forms that resulted from the fusion of Czech art with contemporaneous aesthetic forms from America and Europe, continue to fascinate many people today. Embark on a little journey of Czech Design World, where you can enjoy around 250 works including furniture, tableware, posters, toys, books, etc.
In addition, Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art and Design will be holding a special exhibition in collaboration with Intec Inc., where you can enjoy around 20 works in their collection by the leading painter of fin-de-siècle Czech Republic, Alfonse Mucha.
