GALLERY & CAFÉ Art-n-Coffee is located in the historical center of Prague in the passage of the Czech National Bank building opposite to the gothic Powder Tower/ Gate (Prašná brána) and the Art Nouveau architecture style Municipal House (Obecní dům).
WHAT DO WE OFFER
We decided to create and materialize the CAFÉ & GALLERY Art-n-Coffee because we lacked a place where fine art meets real life. For many years we have been engaged in the trade with art made by artists in Africa – we import and sell stone sculptures from Zimbabwe. We exhibited the sculptures in the traditional exhibition spaces (Veletržní Palace National Gallery in Prague – 2007, Slovak Union of Fine Arts in Bratislava – 2011, Czech Museum of Silver in Kutná Hora – 2014) as well as in places where people usually do not go to meet art (Botanical Garden in Prague Troja – 2007, 2013 and 2018, ZOO Dvůr Králové – 2014 – 2019). With every new exhibition we were more convinced that traditional exhibition spaces lack connection to life and life lacks a greater connection to art.
With this belief we created a concept that is not just another café, where photographs or paintings hang on the walls, but a living café connected to art, where sculptures forms an integral part of the interior of the café. Last but not least, we want the café not only to allow people to meet for a cup of coffee, but also to make it a regular platform for people to meet the live, interpreted art. That is why we regularly organize concerts and social events in the café.
