The University of Toledo Department of Art hosts the work of Czech painter and scenographer, Jaroslav Malina, March 24 – April 29, 2009

The University of Toledo will host a multimedia display of the work of Czech artist Jaroslav Malina at the UT Center for the Visual Arts, March 24 through April 29, 2009. Malina is equally well known for his paintings and for his designs for the stage.

There will be a public opening reception of the exhibit on Friday, March 27 from 6-9 p.m. in the gallery. Dr. Joseph Brandesky, Professor of Theatre at The Ohio State University of Lima and curator of this touring exhibit, will host the reception and will provide a walking tour of the exhibit.

Jaroslav Malina

Malina’s work is currently touring the U.S. Prior to coming to Toledo, the second stop on the tour, it was exhibited in San Antonio, Texas. Upcoming stops include: Lima and Columbus in Ohio, and Alfred University in Alfred, NY. The exhibit will include 68 works, as well as a recorded interview with the artist.
Malina’s career spans more than 40 years and includes more than 450 set and costume designs for theatre, film and television, as well as 30 one-man exhibitions of his scenography work, paintings, graphics and posters. His non-stage work, or “free work” as he calls it, and his scenic designs are inextricably linked. Dr. Brandesky, says, "In both fields one finds Malina expressing his abundant sense of abstraction, eroticism, contradiction, humor."
Born in Prague in 1937, Malina studied in the Faculty of Education of Charles University in Prague, and in the department of stage design of the Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. He has also served as a professor at universities in the U.S., Japan, Finland, and Great Britain, and also as the General Commissioner of the Prague Quadrennial (International Theatre Design and Architecture Exposition). He has been a member of the board for the Commissioner General of the Czech section of EXPO Aichi 2005 in Japan. In recent years, his designs for operas have been staged in Germany and Italy.
His work is currently represented in the collections of Prague’s National Gallery, National Museum, Museum of Decorative Arts, Museum of Czech Music and its Theatre Institute.  In the United States, his work can be seen at the Theatre Research Institute at Ohio State University; The Performing Arts Library and Museum in San Francisco; and in many other public and private collections in the U.S. as well as his home country and abroad.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. The CVA, home to the UT Department of Art, is located at 620 Grove Place, next to the Toledo Museum of Art. Gallery hours are Monday-Saturday 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
