Thinking outside the box: Allesandra Svátek on the success of the Stolen Gallery

In this week’s Arts Radio Prague talks to artist Allesandra Svátek the co-founder of the successful Ukradená Galerie (Stolen Gallery). The project, which uses abandoned outdoor display cases to show works by both famous and lesser-known artists, was launched more or less by accident, when Allesandra and fellow artist Artur Magrot (nicknamed Áčka or the “A’s” in the street art scene) placed their own work in one such box.
