As the Czech Republic’s bustling capital city, Prague is the country’s main destination for history buffs, foodies and partygoers. It’s also home to the best contemporary art galleries in the country, including the cutting-edge DOX in Holešovice and David Černy’s MeetFactory.
Founded in 2001 by the world-renowned Czech sculptor David Černý, MeetFactory is a not-for-profit contemporary art centre with an international outlook. The space’s main mission is to encourage a dialogue between genres, simultaneously making contemporary art more accessible to the public. Based in a former 1920s glassworks factory, MeetFactory is comprised of three spaces – the MeetFactory Gallery, which presents originally curated exhibitions, Kostka Gallery, focussing on solo shows by new and established artists, and the Wall Gallery for large-scale street art. MeetFactory also runs an international artist-in-residence programme, the biggest of its kind in the Czech Republic.
