The Art Zone 8smička is located in the building complex of a former drape factory which, from the end of the 19th century, specialised in manufacture of broadcloth. 8smička aims at blurring out differences between the city centre and the outskirts. The industrial area located half way between Prague and Brno has undertaken a major transformation into a cultural venue which since April 2018 conveys a visitor’s encounter with contemporary art. Regular exhibition rotations are be accompanied by talks, theme evenings, guided tours, programmes for schools, family workshops and more. 8smička offers to loan works from its collection as well as it participates in exhibitions and art events in the whole of the Czech Republic.
