People from Vltavská open-air 20. 12. 2020 – 31. 3. 2021
For the experimental pilot period of the outdoor gallery, the Prague City Gallery curator decided to invite street photographer Kevin V. Ton to select pictures related to the immediate surroundings of the Vltavská station, or Lower Holešovice. The theme of the exhibition is clear and easy to understand: People from Vltavská. It also responds to the current pandemic that has affected life of people on the streets as well as exhibitions in indoor galleries.
Kevin V. Ton is a Prague-based acclaimed freelance photographer, winner of numerous prizes including the Everyday Life category award in the CZECH PRESS PHOTO 2020 competition. His lifelong passion is black and white humanistic documentary photography, and he’s especially focused on long-term projects. He’s been involved in street photography for years. Several years ago, he initiated the establishment of the photographic club VERUM PHOTO.)
The outdoor gallery on the supporting walls above the Vltavská underground station is a new project in the program “Art for the City”. The cascaded terraces will soon give way to the new architectural concept of the Bubny neighborhood, and the piazetta around the projected concert hall. Until the reconstruction starts, various exhibitions will take turns here in 3-month periods.The temporary installation was supported by the program “Art for the City”, in cooperation with the Prague Public Transit Company.
