Original multicultural space MeetFactory hosts contemporary art
MeetFactory was founded in 2001 by David Cerny. The purpose of this organisation is to support and develop contemporary art and culture and to make it accessible to the public. MeetFactory is unique in its attempt to to connect art, theatre, film, music and educational programs. It also provides its facilities to its resident artists, who come from all around the world, thereby connecting the domestic and international art scenes.
In MeetFactory, fine arts, theatre, film, music and educational programs closely meet together
The basis of the project and its originality is an interdisciplinary complex of dramaturgic series based on the international residential program already successfully proven in past gallery activities.
MeetFactory has its own music programme which is focused on the independent music scene; 6-8 performances are held per month in the music hall which is fitted with high-end audio equipment. There are three galleries in the MeetFactory building: the national and international art scenes are given space for critical confrontation in the main MeetFactory Gallery, Cube Gallery is for short-term exhibitions of little-known artists, and Wall Gallery is for experimental exhibitions of drawings and paintings, ranging towards and including classical graffiti. Finally, it is necessary to mention the international residency programme in which MeetFactory hosts contemporary artists: artists, musicians but also writers, who present their work to the public via the regular event of Open Studios which takes place approximately once a month.
