The basic information about the gallery:
In 2017, the FaVU Gallery resumed its activities in the new premises of the Faculty of Fine Arts, Brno Technical University on Údolní 244/53. Its program is a continuation of the activities of the Aula Gallery, which was suspended in 2016 due to the relocation of the Faculty. The gallery has returned to its original name, thereby more clearly declaring its mission and at the same time making the institution of which it is an integral part more visible. The FaVU Gallery is a living communicative space for the coming generation of artists and curators under 35 years. It is an experimental laboratory of open dialogue with the academia and the public. It offers a background for professional presentation to young authors not only from among students and doctoral students but also graduates of art schools. The basic mission of the FaVU Gallery is to present excellent results in the field of visual, audio-visual and audio production.
