Challenge and Change: Decorative Arts and Glass in the Czech Republic in the 20th and 21st Centuries

Accompanying the stunning exhibition of glass from the internationally renowned Lhotsky Studio in the University Art Gallery at Grand Parade will be a day-long seminar that explores the place of Czech decorative arts and glass as key elements of national cultural production and projection.


This history has been both distinguished and innovative in its willing embrace of the possibilities of new materials and forms of aesthetic expression, albeit tempered - or charged - by radically changing political and economic boundaries. 


Fresh insights will be afforded by leading practitioners and historians in the field, drawing on the contributions of leading figures in both the Czech Republic and elsewhere in Europe. This significant event will both draw upon and complement the Czech Design Symposium held in the University in early December 2005.


Speakers will include: Dr Vojtech Lahoda, Zdenek Lhotsky, Prof. Sylva Petrova, PhD, Dr Irena Murray, Jonathan Woodham
