Exceptionally, it will also be open on Sunday 17. 6. 2022.
The exhibition is literally taking place at the site of creation. Academy of Arts, Architecture, and Design in Prague will fill both of its buildings with the works of its students - semester, master's, and bachelor's theses. The event will take place not only in the studios on nám. Jana Palacha, but also throughout the entire new UMPRUM Technology Centre in Mikulandská Street.
The end of the UMPRUM academic year is inseparably closed by two key exhibitions Artsemestr and Diploma & Bachelor Projects. The exhibition is proof of how UMPRUM students have developed and advanced. Here they regularly defend their talents and newly acquired skills, presenting what their studies have given them and how they have grown.
The Artsemestr exhibition of semester and final projects is traditionally presented on the home ground of the studios in the main building. A new feature is the location of the Diploma and Bachelor's Projects exhibition in the UMPRUM Technology Centre.
"The new UMPRUM Technology Centre primarily provides workshop facilities. However, the architects also envisaged cultural and social overlap. After the smaller presentations located on the ground floor, we had a unique opportunity to use the common areas as one large gallery. Visitors will thus have the opportunity not only to see the work of our graduates but also to look through the glass partitions into the places where their work was created", says Jindřich Vybíral, Rector of UMPRUM, about the new concept of the presentation of the Diploma and Bachelors Project exhibition.
Both events will once again offer a wealth of works from the fields of architecture, design, fine and applied arts, and graphic design. The projects largely reflect current events, the social and ecological situation, and its needs. The assignments themselves also respond to an understanding of the principles of making in practice and thus help to improve professional life.
During June, visitors will have the opportunity not only to get acquainted with the latest works of UMPRUM students but also to soak up the creative atmosphere of both school buildings.
