about the exhibition

Under the title Beyond Reality, British Painting Today, the Galerie Rudolfinum in Prague is organising a large representative overview of contemporary British art. The exhibition will present the works of the twelve important artists of the younger and middle generations currently active in Great Britain.

The Beyond Reality exhibition presents the work of twelve contemporary British artists of the middle generation. The selection of works reflects the growing importance of post-conceptual, mostly figurative painting, which now holds an extraordinary position on the British art scene. One of its key moments is the questioning of the possibilities, meaning and method of viewing reality. The exhibition has been conceived specifically for the exhibition spaces of Galerie Rudolfinum. In the work of selected artists in the first part of the exhibition are unmistakable references to photographic realism. The second part of the exhibition includes works by artists programmatically-following academic painting of the 19th century, and references to classical painting firmly tied to the Renaissance heritage.
