"Contemporary art, quality concerts, movies, theatrical performances - all in the interesting industrial premises."
Prague art club MEETFACTORY.
I nternational centre of contemporary art - Meetfactory is exhibition space rather than music club, but there is also a lot of concerts and other events.
Meet Factory was established by famous Czech artist David Černý (He is well-known because he painted soviet tank to pink, after Czech Velvet revolution in 1989; because he made baby statues in Prague TV tower or because of his "Entropa" - statue in Brusel during Czech Presidency of the Council of the European Union). On the program of Meetfactory also contributes David Koller (famous Czech rock musician) and Alice Nellis (movie and theatre director). These three people guarantees quality of music, film and art programm. They want to give space not only to Prague and Czech artist throughout art directions with one specification - contemporary art.
Meetfactory is situated in a remote area of railway station Praha - Smíchov (in the direction from Prague to Plzeň). The building lies straight next to rails and it encourages to go there accross the rails, what is really dangerous and we recommended choose the longer but safer way over the bridge.. :)
Ke Sklárně 3213/15, Praha 5
How to get there? Take the subway "B" (yellow line) and get off at the station Smíchovské nádraží. Bear right along the train tracks, past bus station and go 400 meters straight ahead, cross train tracks over the bridge and then turn right. Then go straight ahead and after 300 meters you will reach the MeetFactory.
You can also go straight across train tracks from the end of train station Smíchovské nádraží. It is the nearest way but dangerous.
