PLATO – Platform (for the contemporary art) Ostrava

The Gallery of Ostrava

PLATO is a way how to bring together contemporary art in various forms and places. PLATO is rather an imaginary space that is, in physical and organizational sense, based on the facilities of the current project, the Gallery of Ostrava, but it can be practically assignable and transferable anywhere around the city according to the needs.

17.00–23.00 Guided tours of exhibitions in the gallery and in the vestibule of the Multifunctional auditorium Gong

18.00–23.00 Night Watchman

Creative workshops for the whole family. Being a night watchman in a gallery isn’t easy! Sometimes someone from a painting starts to talk to you, sometimes a statue taps you on a shoulder and your shadow plays a bizarre spectacle in the darkened gallery… Come to see what it is like! You will capture your shadow and bring home Platon – a night watchman of your own!

22.00 Guided tour of Vladimír Houdek exhibition
