Veronika Šrek Bromová & Miloš Šejn
1. 10. 2021 — 31. 3. 2022
Vernisáž 30. 9. 2021 od 18.30 hodin (součástí GRAND OPENING : SMETANAQ GALLERY)
Jaké jsou společné výhledy a jak se liší od našich očekávání? Jakou mají naše vize perspektivu a jak odvážné je tvrzení, že víme, co bude dál? Společná výstava Veroniky Šrek Bromové a Miloše Šejna v oknech galerie Fasáda se zabývá úvahou nad výhledem naší společnosti do blízké i vzdálené budoucnosti. Zdůrazňuje, jak důležité je rozhlížet se kolem sebe, vyhlédnout ven z oken svého soukromí a následně se dokázat vcítit, porozumět a nesoudit. Zve diváky, aby nahlédli pod povrch svých životů a uvědomili si, jak život každého z nás ovlivňuje společný život náš všech.

10/1 - 11/14 2021Facebook event
The country magician, Miloš Šejn brings to Prague fragments from the whole world elevated to artifacts, building his archive for decades. Images, objects, videos, words, sounds and performances make up one whole, a reflection on natural cycles, on the coexistence of Man and Earth. Monumental canvases were created using the performative method in mountain landscapes, valleys and in the environment of city gardens. They are a record of human perception outside and inside the body, plant diversity, birdsong, wind, chill. Attentive may also discover calligraphic fragments of texts…
The video projection Zahradničení appeals to the Gardener's Year of Karel Čapek. The installation creates a landscape from the horizon of old garden watering cans. The watering cans are ready, we can break up and go watering the right places. This time our gaze wanders across the river to the country's state-building site. Perhaps there ought to be a better gardener? The exhibition is a great visual event and we can look forward to the author's performance.
curator: Martina Vítková
Miloš Šejn was born in Jablonec nad Nisou, in 1975 he graduated from the Faculty of Philosophy at Charles University in Prague. 1976 Doctorate in Philosophy, 1991 Appointed Professor of Painting. From 1990 to 2011 he worked as a head teacher at the Intermedia Studio at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and as a guest teacher at the Academies in Aix-en-Provence, Carrara, The Hague, Ljubljana, Stuttgart and Vienna.
He works in the fields of visual art, performance, deals with the issue of visual perception and organizes workshops such as Bohemiae Rosa. His artistic concept was shaped from his youth, when he made a lot of journeys through the wilderness as a reflection of the inner need to approach the secrets of nature and observe the miracle that takes place there. From the early 1960s, during his travels, he photographed, drew, collected and described his observations. At present, he focuses on immediate creative possibilities, based on the relationships between the historic humanized landscape and the whole nature. He consciously works in the areas of expressive language between text, artistic footprint, body movement, voice and expansion into space.
In addition to his truly remarkable project in the Czech Republic (Sluneční hora), Šejn has permanent or procedural landscape realizations in France and Germany. He has also worked with countries in Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Ireland and Iceland. He has been exhibiting since 1970 in a number of galleries throughout Europe and abroad, eg: National Gallery in Prague, Moravian Gallery in Brno, ifa Gallery in Berlin, Zentrum für Kunst und Medien-technologie Karlsruhe, Ludvig Forum für Internationale Kunst Aachen, MAC Musées d'Art Contemporain Marseille, Mücsarnok Budapest, Manggha Museum in Krakow, Uppsala Art Museum, Palazzo Grassi in Venice, Houston Museum of Fine Arts, Indianapolis Art Museum, MoMA PS1 New York.
SmetanaQ Gallery is an art gallery believeing that art belongs to every household. The gallery connects the presentation of beginning artists with well-established authors, across artistic styles, gender and age. Through careful curatorial selection, it gives voice and space to those who want to present their work to the general public. It focuses on connecting the art world with the commercial world, thus creating a space for interaction, discussion and mutual inspiration. Last but not least, its goal is to enliven public space with art. That’s why artists exhibiting in the gallery also present large-format works in the windows of the Facade Gallery.

Café & Bistroi
MON - SUN 9 AM - 9 PM
Located on the ground floor
Our SmetanaQ Café & Bistro is the heart of the house at No. 4 Smetanovo nábřeží. It´s a meeting point for students, artists and people from all walks of life who enjoy a cup of excellent coffee or tea.
Every morning our pastry cook comes to the kitchen to bake for you a wide variety of cakes, tarts, tartlets and fruit pies. Our kitchen also makes its own savoury desserts, quiches and sourdough bread as well as hot and cold breakfasts, afternoon menu, and substantial soups prepared from fresh vegetables and home-made bouillons. In the evening, you can sit with friends over a glass of wine not only inside the café but also on our terrace, which remains cool and shady on hot days.
We are proud to offer quality food by Czech producers from Bohemia and Moravia. We strive to make our guests feel good so that they will come back again not only to enjoy our food but – far more important – to gain new energy from this special place on the Vltava River bank, in a house that we wanted to restore to a new life.
Our Coffee and Tea
We obtain our coffee from the Czech roaster DoubleShot, enthusiastic coffee experts who not only thoroughly understand coffee but also visit farms in many countries of Africa and South America. We regularly change our selection on offer; this year it has been possible to enjoy Guatemalan grain espresso or filtered coffee from Rwanda. We also offer tea imported by the TeaMountain in Prague-Karlín, which directly buys fragrant leaves from farms in Japan, Nepal, and India, among other countries.
Our café is an ideal location for your meetings, with its distinctive interior featuring Czech design. The tastefully refurbished interior is complemented by modern Bomma lamps, Ton chairs and a solid oak furniture. The rooms are full of the afternoon sun with the rippling reflections of the Vltava River. The large windows offer a beautiful view of the Petřín Hill and the Střelecký Island. In the winter, you can see the entire panorama of the Prague castle; in the summer, the view is partly obscured by the rich green foliage of the trees on the opposite side of the street. The atmosphere of the evening waterfront is enhanced by the illuminated trams that come to a halt across from the house and then continue on their journey.
Our indoor café area has eighty seats and our terrace another twenty. The café has a separate lounge with library, a popular venue for family celebrations, corporate events, interviews with journalists and book-signing sessions. A book club regularly meets here. The lounge can be rented along with the adjoining terrace.
