The “5KV” exhibition on the overlap between art and design is the symbolic culmination of five years of the Kvalitář Gallery’s work, which, against the background of the eponymous architectonic studio, focuses on both disciplines. The exhibition is divided into two parts; the first represents the above-mentioned contemporary works by domestic and international artists who, in various ways, touch on both disciplines, whether from a theoretical perspective, a visual perspective, or from the perspective of how both branches of visual culture function. The second part of the exhibition is then dedicated to a specific example from history demonstrating an instance of the actual overlap of both disciplines, namely, a dialogue between the oeuvres of the Italian designer Alessandro Mendini and the Czech artist Milan Knížák.
