Prague Off the Map

Artwall

Artwall gallery located on Letná wall on the Cpt. Jaros and Edvard Benes Embankment represents a unique symbiosis of urban organism and public gallery. The gallery operated from 2005-2008 when, under the organizational management of the Center for Contemporary Arts Prague, displayed 15 exhibitions of both Czech and foreign artists. In 2008, however, the gallery was forcibly closed down by Municipality, who withdrew from it the leasing contract. In November 2011, after three years of silence, Artwall was re-opened to the public again, this time under the administration of C2C Circle of curators and critics. Project Artwall aims to support social impact of contemporary art in non-gallery environment. This goal is based on the nature of the gallery’s dominant location, which ensures effective communication with the public. Due to the number of drivers and passengers who daily pass through the embankment, Artwall is one of the most visited Czech galleries.
