SUTNARKA presents at the Nová síň Gallery

The group exhibition "The World of Tomorrow" brings together original artwork of the influential Czech designer and artist Ladislav Sutnar (1897–1976) with the work of exceptional talents from the Plzeň-based Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art at The University of West Bohemia.

The project's title refers directly to the pivotal 1939 New York World Fair for which Sutnar designed an exhibition of Czechoslovak prosperity. Today, "The World of Tomorrow" announces the arrival of a new generation of artists to the contemporary art scene with a playful sense of grandeur.

The 2019 exhibition takes the multidisciplinary discourse of the 1939 exhibition as its impassionate undercurrent. In New York, Ladislav Sutnar displayed outstanding works of Czechoslovak visual art, design, illustration, crafts, fashion, architecture, poetry, science, industry and heritage in one of his much-celebrated non-hierarchical spatial compositions. Eighty years later, "The World of Tomorrow" at Galerie Nová Síň pays homage to this historically significant exhibition by reassigning the Fair's title to an ambitious and promising group of up-and-coming artists who are active in diverse creative fields.

"The World of Tomorrow" is both a unique display of extraordinary art in a Gesamtkunstwerk-inspired exhibition design by curator Jan Van Woensel and a celebration of Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design & Art's unparalleled progressive vision.
