Egon Schiele Art Centrum Český Krumlov
The cultural centre in 16th century building complex of the former town brewery in Český Krumlov was renovated partly with international help and opened in November 1993 with a Schiele exhibition. Besides a presentation documenting the life and work of Egon Schiele and a permanent exhibition of his watercolours and drawings, the Egon Schiele Art Centrum (ESAC) presents regularly changing exhibitions. These classical and contemporary 20th century art exhibitions occupy a space of 3000 square metres. Czech representatives in particular are presented alongside international artists.
In order to encourage international exchange, part of the museum complex was converted into generously proportioned studios for long-term study and working visits by East and West European artists. The studios can be leased for 10 years by international organisations and flats are currently being prepared for authors as well.
