About project Arthub

Project Art Hub was founded by Flow East in order to support talented Czech artists who are looking for studio to work in.  We have donated to the project the whole ground floor of one of our historic buildings Ericsson Palace and have redone the grounds into art studios.  These are available to the chosen artists for free during the period of 16 months. 

 

Our vision

The Flow East Art Hub provides free studio and exhibition space for young artists living and working in Prague against the backdrop of a 12th century building known as Ericsson Palace at Malé náměstí. For centuries, “Golden Prague” has been a breeding ground for some of the world’s most celebrated painters, sculptors, graphic designers, and photographers including Mucha, Burian, Kupka and Sudek to name only a few. Our idea is to perpetuate their legacy by stimulating artistic endeavour in this historical quarter of the city.

Gallery space

The Ericsson Palace is located in the very centre of Prague on Malé Náměstí next to the Old Town Square. The building meets all modern requirements while retaining all of its historical features. It is part of the cultural heritage list.

 

The Palace has a very rich building history; a Romanesque core with late Gothic lierne vaulting and Renaissance, Baroque and Classicist additions. The hall with the lierne vaulting is associated with the work of Matěj Rejsek (1445 - 1506), architect, sculptor and stonemason.

Ericsson Palace combines elements of art, culture with first-class office and commercial premises.
