The exhibition “All the Best” in the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague (UPM) presents a unique collection of works by thirty prominent internationally renowned Czech artists. They belong to the two generations of pioneers who have used the glass material in their artistic production, now called studio glass. The inclusion of these contemporary works of art into the permanent exhibition of the Museum indicates not only their various links to the past, but in particular the power of artistic expression of a group of artists who are active world leaders in their field — hence the title “All the Best!” This exhibition, which features works by famous artists, is a tribute to more than a third of them on the occasion of their personal anniversaries, and literally wishes “All the Best” also to the Museum for the time of reconstruction of its main building and construction of a modern depository. The exhibition has been prepared in collaboration with Galerie Pokorná as one of the projects within the framework of the Prague Festival, PF12, an international meeting of artists working with glass.
