Gallery of Silesian Ostrava
Gallery of Silesian Ostrava is a cultural facility of the city district Silesian Ostrava. It was founded in 2008. And it commenced its activities by a series of exhibitions on architectural themes. The gallery has expanded its conception with photographic exhibitions focussing on stage design or famous people in the next years. Since 2010 fine art (e.g. R. Fučíková, I. Titor, I. Kitzberger) has played the leading role in the exhibition show schedule. Since 2011 the gallery dramaturgy has preferred those artists that tied their life, work or educational activities with Ostrava such as K. Lepík, E. Damborská. In the next years there were big exposition projects, e.g. Ostrava Art or The Contemporary Czech Industrial or Ostrava from the Other Side. Often the expos are co-organised with other cultural organisations and expositions by foreign authors are not an exception (I. Haász, I. Piačka, A. Augustín).
Since September 2015 the Gallery of Silesian Ostrava has regularly organised thematic evenings pointed at literature, music or theatre, meeting important personalities like Petr Nárožný, Alfréd Strejček, Martina Kociánová or concerts by e.g. a singer-writer Jan Burian. Events are supplemented by out of ordinary coffee catering by Mental Café.
Also other events like conferences, social events and seminars take place here.
The Gallery of Silesian Ostrava has a wheel-chair access.
