Dílna Mikulov - Art symposium


The idea of the Mikulov Art Symposium (MAS) „Workshop" was born in the early 1994. It was originated mainly by the then authorities of the Town Council – mayor RNDr. Tomáš Zejda, vice-mayor Vojtěch Příbramský and academic sculptor Nikos Armutidis.

The opening of the fifth annual event was approved by the Mikulov Town Council and its current mayor MUDr. Ivo Koneš.

The Symposium was preceded with the exhibition of the MAS „Workshop“ ´98 participants in the Gallery „Stucco Hall“ inMikulov. The exhibition was staged from July 3 to July 19, 1998.

The Symposium took place from July 18 to August 22, 1998 at the premises of the Mikulov Chateau with great aid of the Regional Museum in Mikulov, its management and employees.

The ceremonial opening took place on July 18, 1998 in the Entry Hall of the Regional Museum in Mikulov. The speeches were presented by the Mikulov mayor MUDr. Ivo Koneš, ing. arch. Lydie Filipová, head of the regional Development Section of the Distrikt Office in Břeclav, and PhDr. Vladimír Železný, managing director of the TV Nova. The private views of two exhibitions were staged on the opening day of the MAS – The Open Project and other works of Marie Filipová in the Synagogue in the Hus Street and pictures from private collections of the Mikulov artist Rudolf Gajdoš. The all-day programme was closed with the theatre performance for children – the Nosáček adventures
and the evening concert of the groups Precedens and Krásné nové stroje.

The results of the MAS „Workshop“ ´98 were presented in the park and halls of the Mikulov Chateau.

The private view took place on August 22, 1998 at 17.00 o’clock. The following people or groups participated in the programme: the guitar trio – Three Roses, M-jazyk, Slavic circle – Demijohn. The speeches were presented by: the Mikulov mayor, MUDr. Ivo Koneš, Mgr. Dobromila Brichtová, Libor Lípa, the MAS guarantor, Vítězslav Vrbka for the MAS production and the Symposium participants. The programme was moderated by Petr Halberstadt, actor of the National Theatre in Brno.

The artist Petr Jareš became the curator of the fifth jubilee MAS "Workshop" ´98. He invited artists to be personally involved. By his fatherly instinct he managed to bring the exposition to the successful and peaceful realisation. Many thanks to him.
