Moravská galerie (Museum of Applied Arts)
The Biennial’s main exhibition shows this year’s selected works. The goal is to present graphic design as a diverse field by combining different approaches and opinions under one roof.
Náměstí Svobody (Freedom square)
Take a walk to the main square in Brno – Náměstí Svobody (Freedom square) with its unique and oddly shaped astronomical clock that some people (especially from Prague) tend to mock.
Before you attend the second part of the Biennial show at the Scala, a cinema dating back to 1929, it is advisable to check out Hotel Avion nearby. Built by prominent czech architect Bohuslav Fuchs, it is one of the narrowest hotels in the world.
The second part of the Biennial exhibition is on display here. Various accompanying exhibitions includes also shows about czech designer Aleš Najbrt and type designer Fratišek Štorm among other interdisciplinary expositions.
Brno House of Arts
At the other side of the park you will find the Brno House of Arts, an institution focused on contemporary art. The visual style for this institution was designed by progressive tandem from Prague – Petr Bosák and Robert Jansa (20YY designers). It was commissioned in 2007, at times when liquid identities were still rare.
Go Brno Restaurant
In the evening eat something light at Go Brno, a Vietnamese restaurant with modern interior.
Bar, který neexistuje and U Alberta
Afterwards, get a drink at trendy Bar, který neexistuje (“Bar which doesn’t exist” – don’t worry, it does!) just around the corner. Or if you would like to try something unusual, there is a pub right under the Špilberk castle called U Alberta. It has a unique atmosphere and is a go to place for many young locals.
