The House of Art in ?eské Bud?jovice, which is the residence of The Gallery of Contemporary Art, has been managed by The Joint-Stock Company Municipal Houses of Culture ?eské Bud?jovice, which acquired the house for a long-term lease from the town, since 1997. Since 1998, the dramaturgy of this gallery has been focused, under the management of the curator Michal Škoda, on contemporary visual arts and architecture. Every year, the gallery prepares ten exhibitions of the most interesting Czech artists but also important artists from abroad. Most of these are thus presented for the first time not only in this country but in Eastern Europe in general. However, contrary to expectations, the "address of their destination" isn't Prague, but ?eské Bud?jovice. Space is given to interesting young artists, too.
