Špálova Galerie Prague – Gallery with a soul

arts&culture
Art & culture

"Špálova Galerie" in Prague is a rather small gallery that overflows with character. Three levels, very well curated exhibitions, fantastic artist choice.

There are many galleries in the city. Quite a few of them belong to the Prague city gallery institution (tourists are most likely to get to these). However, there are so many more independent galleries that approach art with somewhat less of a conservative attitude. Visiting those along the well-established ones is a general way I like to explore the art scene of any given city. It gives me the opportunity to see young local artists and explore unique spaces.

Galerie Václava Špály definitely falls into that category. It's a rather small gallery, however, it overflows with character. It's located at the corner of Spálená street, and even though it might not catch your attention right away, it should not be missed. The exhibitions are usually very well curated and the selection of artists is pretty great as well.

There are three levels at the gallery, which allows the creation of different atmosphere for the different sections and the exhibition held there. My personal favorite is the upper level, since there is an entire glass wall you can see the street out of, which puts the exhibitions in the context of life in the city. We would come here during our art lessons a lot and I remember us always looking out of that window, watching life outside, admiring the old architecture across the street. It's one of my favorite spots to come to when I need to see things from a birds-eye-view.
