The Arts and Theatre Institute (ATI) is the traditional organising partner of theatre exhibitions in the Czech Republic and abroad. Almost all the exhibitions are ‘tailored’ by the ATI’s curators to the space and context of the given exhibition. The exhibits are selected from the collection of the ATI, which is centred on stage design and contains originals of stage and costume designs, models, and other artefacts of artistic value and of significance for theatre history. When necessary, the ATI can also arrange loans of exhibits from Czech theatres, archives, and private collections. The ATI also within financial limits provides exhibitions with accessory materials, such as illustration captions in the requisite language, catalogues, posters and other promotional materials, and expert lectures.
