The Slav Epic (Slovanská epopej) in Brno will be a truly unique event on a global level. It will combine two opposing worlds of renowned Art Nouveau artist Alfons Mucha’s works – the majestic Slav Epic and a unique collection of posters. As host to this exhibition, Brno will become the very first place to show the interconnection created by this great Czech artist. The exhibition features nine of the largest canvases from the Slav Epic cycle and will be complemented by the largest collection of Mucha’s posters, together forming an absolutely unique, unparalleled event.
The nine canvases, most of them 8×6 metres, will be located in the main nave of Pavilion H, Brno Exhibition Centre. The collection of Richard Fuxa, with almost two hundred artefacts, including posters, decorative panels, calendars, as well as advertisements for drinks, industrial products, and various social and cultural events, will be located under the pavilions galleries. The collection has grown substantially since it was first exhibited in Prague’s Obecní dům in 2013. As a result, visitors will have an opportunity to see a number of artworks that have never been exhibited before.

The Exhibition is held within the festival Re:public 1918-2018.
