The New Zlín Salon is linked to the tradition of the historic Zlín Salons held each year is Zlín between 1936 and 1948. At the time, these were the most important displays of contemporary Czechoslovak (or Czech, between 1939 and 1944) fine art. The Zlín Salons became a model for the connection between the Baťa company and unconventional culture. A successful renewal of these displays in the form of the New Zlín Salon took place in 1996 under the auspices and direct participation of President Václav Havel. Since 2005, artists from Slovakia have participated in this exhibition as well. All previous years of salons (1996, 1999, 2002, 2005, 2008, 2011) our gallery realized in collaboration with the town of Zlín, Zlín District Office or the Zlin Region, the Ministry of Culture Czech Republic and the support of the Thomas Bata Foundation and other partners - sponsors from the business community.
