Similarly to other cultural organizations, the coronavirus crisis has had a paralysing effect on the process of planning of the first edition of the Biennale Matter of Art. However, at the moment the situation appears to be promising and with the recent loosening of the government restrictions it is highly likely that we will be able to open the exhibition in 2020.

The first edition of the Biennale Matter of Art will take place in two locations – the Prague City Gallery in the Municipal Library building and in the Prague Market at the premises of a former slaughterhouse.
