About Stanislav Kolíbal
Stanislav Kolíbal was born in Orlová (former Czechoslovakia) in 1925, and currently lives and works in Prague. He studied graphic design at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, and stage design at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. His works have been included in major international exhibitions, for example Sculpture from 20 Nations, (Guggenheim, New York, 1967), Between Man and Matter (Metropolitan Art Gallery, Tokyo, 1970), Konstrukcja w procesie (Museum of Art, Łodż 1981), Transforming Chronologies (MoMA, New York 2006) and Other Primary Structures (Jewish Museum, New York, 2014), and in solo exhibitions at the Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea (Milan, 1983), the National Gallery Prague (1997, 2015) and Labil – Stabil (Deichtorhallen Hamburg, 2000). Nonetheless, Kolíbal’s oeuvre remains insufficiently represented, still waiting to be considered in a broader international context.
