The support facilities built by artists directly for the Plato gallery have been expanded by a cinema designed by the Polish artist Zuza Golińska, visitors’ facilities by the French artist Stéphanie Lagarde and a third presentation structure – display created by the Czech artist Zbyněk Baladrán. The exhibition is the fifth in the Temporary Structures cycle.
The space for daydreaming and evening film projections is an answer of the Polish artist Zuza Golińska to the question of what a cinema might look like and how it could function in a gallery. The French artist Stéphanie Lagarde helped with the mediation of different types of information about what PLATO offers. Her intervention in the form of visitors’ facilities is the first pace in the building of the former Bauhaus DIY store where visitors will encounter a work of art as a functional structure. Another variation on a presentation area – display comes from the artist and exhibition architect Zbyněk Baladrán.

Temporary Structures is Plato’s year-long project when the city gallery’s backup facilities in the former Bauhaus are created by artists. Instead of traditional exhibitions we present a library, a bistro, a shop, a cinema and a garden as works of art.
The exhibitions run throughout the period of PLATO’s activity in the building on Janáčkova St. 22 (former Bauhaus store).
