DOX Centre for Contemporary Art
The DOX Centre for Contemporary Art, Architecture and Design is now in its seventh year of successful activity. The project originated as a private initiative, founded on the conviction that Prague belongs on the map of contemporary art and lacked such an alternative centre. Over the course of the six years of its existence, DOX has presented more than a hundred and twenty exhibition projects, over five hundred accompanying programmes and more than six hundred educational and family programmes.
Today it ranks amongst the most progressive artistic institutions in the Czech Republic, and enjoys wide popularity amongst the public. DOX's mission is to present and advance contemporary art in the context of issues that are changing today's world.
Emphasis is placed on the overlap between the Czech and the international contexts and also among the various artistic disciplines. DOX also has a bookshop and design shop, and you can relax at a pleasant café with a terrace. A sales gallery offers a selection of works by leading Czech designers and conceptual artists. Attesting to DOX’s leading position among Czech galleries are numerous awards, including several Prague Post readers’ choice awards as the best art gallery in the city.
