Since 2008, the ArtMap association has been publishing a highly informative map of exhibitions and events. The map is nowadays offered in a bilingual (CZ and ENG) version published on a bi-monthly basis in Prague, every three months in Brno, and on special occasions in other cities. It is offered free of charge in galleries, information centers, select cafés, cinemas or various cultural institutions, mostly in and around Prague and Brno.
The website artmap.cz offers up-to-date, daily news items about exhibitions and art events all over the Czech Republic. You can also subscribe to receive a regular weekly newsletter with information about vernissages and other news flashes including exhibition closings, or sign up for a special newsletter devoted purely to children’s programs. The database for the events and exhibitions also doubles as an archive.
In September 2016, the association opened a bookshop in Vojtěšská St. No. 18 in Prague with the support of the Agosto Foundation. It focuses on publications on art, culture and alternative communities, and offers a wide selection of original children’s literature. Along with the Agosto Foundation, the ArtMap association has founded and runs the Tapeta gallery – a minimalist gallery consisting of a piece of (wall)paper art nestled within a stucco frame on the foyer wall of the art-nouveau town house at Vojtěšská street. The association furthermore organizes cultural events, publishes its own texts and runs a bookshop in Brno.
