About

The GAMU (Gallery AMU), situated at Malostranské náměstí 12, has been active under the auspices of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague since 2008. Its mission is to foster a conductive environment for presentation and critical reflection on contemporary art, focusing especially on artists from the youngest generation. As such, exhibitions of final and graduate works from students of the Academy and student projects from other fine art schools form an integral part of the program. The second, equally substantial segment of the gallery’s dramaturgy is focused on the production of challenging curated exhibitions of more established artists, both Czech and foreign, whose work utilizes new media, or transcends the boundaries of traditional art disciplines in an original way. The continuing development of AMU Gallery’s parallel platform for music, sound art, and multimedia performances constitutes an important part of this latter segment.
