Until 1989, women were present on the Czech art scene more often than not as solitary figures, eclipsed by their male counterparts. In the course of the 1990s came a rapid succession of several generations of women artists asserting themselves. Their output brought in new subjects and a new visual aspect of art work, but also a previously unwitnessed enhancement of the status of women in the domestic art community.
The exhibition In a Skirt – Sometimes / Art of the 1990s is an attempt at a retrospective survey documenting the aforementioned shift in Czech art of the 1990s through select works by women artists. The show brings together 14 artists: namely, Veronika Bromová, Milena Dopitová, Lenka Klodová, Martina Klouzová-Niubó, Zdena Kolečková, Alena Kotzmannová, Markéta Othová, Míla Preslová, Elen Řádová, Štěpánka Šimlová, Kateřina Šedá, Michaela Thelenová, Markéta Vaňková, and Kateřina Vincourová. It is accompanied by a publication documenting the participants´ output during the period from 1990 to the present day, and setting it within a broader sociological and, most notably, art-historical context.
