World-famous canvases by Alfons Mucha to be exhibited together with a collection of his posters

The Slav Epic (Slovanská epopej) in Brno will be a truly unique event on a global level. It will combine two opposing worlds of renowned Art Nouveau artist Alfons Mucha’s works – the majestic Slav Epic and a unique collection of posters. As host to this exhibition, Brno will become the very first place to show the interconnection created by this great Czech artist. The exhibition features nine of the largest canvases from the Slav Epic cycle and will be complemented by the largest collection of Mucha’s posters, together forming an absolutely unique, unparalleled event.

The nine canvases, most of them 8×6 metres, will be located in the main nave of Pavilion H. The collection of Richard Fuxa, with almost two hundred artefacts, including posters, decorative panels, calendars, as well as advertisements for drinks, industrial products, and various social and cultural events, will be located under the pavilions galleries. The collection has grown substantially since it was first exhibited in Prague’s Obecní dům in 2013. As a result, visitors will have an opportunity to see a number of artworks that have never been exhibited before.

This unique combination of Mucha’s work was made possible by a cooperation of the Capital of Prague as the owner of the Slav Epic cycle, the statutory city of Brno, Brno Exhibition Grounds, and the Richard Fuxa Foundation, which administers the collection of posters.

The RE:PUBLIKA Festival sums up one hundred years of our country’s independence. I’m very happy that the globally renowned Slav Epic can be shown here in Brno, and I’d like to thank Prague for its role in making this possible. Through this exhibition, RE:PUBLIKA symbolically interconnects the two largest Czech cities. The idea and rendition of this work by the world-famous Czech artist, born here in Moravia, which he created in the interwar period, celebrates the Czech nation, proudly remembers our past, and looks to the future with hope. This is why I’m sure it’s precisely in line with the concept and soul of the RE:PUBLIKA Festival,
