Torso | A Retrospective
13. 9. — 3. 11. 2013
Jan Malý, who was born in 1954, is a member of the first generation of photography students to graduate from the Film and Television School of the Academy of Performing Arts (FAMU), Prague. While still at FAMU, he attracted attention with his talent as a documentary photographer (with his series The U Nováků Gambling Room and The Reduta Jazz Club) and his bold approach to form. He is known for, among other things, his documentation of pre-war Czech architecture, his work on the Czech People portrait series, his photos of Brittany (made after travel restrictions on Czechs were lifted with the changes of late 1989), and his On the Road series. His previous solo exhibition was organized by Anna Fárová in 1980. With the current retrospective, Jan Malý is thus presenting his works to the public for the first time in 33 years.
