About Embassy of the Czech and Gallery 17/18
The Embassy of the Czech Republic is partnering with the non-profit initiative Gallery 17/18 to host art exhibitions in the Embassy building, which has been recently adapted for the presentation of artistic works. Gallery 17/18 will provide a venue for contemporary Czech and Canadian artists to showcase their works throughout 2017 and 2018. These are the years in which Canada and the Czech Republic will commemorate important anniversaries, 150 years since Canadian Confederation and 100 years since the creation of the independent state of Czechoslovakia. During these years, Gallery 17/18 will organize a series of exhibitions featuring artists from both countries. Gallery 17/18 is open to collaboration with Canadian institutions.
