Jan Merta: Retina. Possibilities of Painting (1989–2019)

The exhibition traces the possibilities of Czechoslovak classical painting of the last 30 years. It focuses on the sensory perception of specific phenomena in painting, such as colours, shapes, light or the author’s style. Marcel Duchamp used the term “Retina art” derogatively for works focusing merely o the optical impression. The exhibition accentuates the visual nature of the painting, which is equivalent to the ideological component of the work. It may be seen as a way of traditional reading of contemporary painting, or contemporary reading of traditional painting.
