Prague Quadrennial

I was a featured designer in the United States' professional exhibition at the Prague Quadrennial 2019. Click the link below to see my the video that was screened as part of the exhibition.

PQ2019 was the 14th edition of the largest international festival of theater and stage design that took place from June 6 to 16, 2019 at Výstaviště Praha (Prague Exhibition Grounds). Over the course of eleven days, representatives of 79 countries presented at Prague Quadrennial, with over 800 artists from around the world, and over 600 performances, workshops and lectures.

Three thematic areas of interest were interwoven throughout the entire PQ program: Imagination, Transformation, and Memory. PQ presents three competitive exhibition sections: Exhibition of Countries and Regions, Student Exhibition, and Performance Space Architecture Exhibition. There were also performances in public spaces – Formations and Site Specific Performance Festival. Fragments presents iconic objects and artifacts. The 36Q° audiovisual project took over the Malá sportovní hala (Small Sports Hall). Studio PQ showcased the work of emerging young artists. PQ Talks featured lectures and discussions with the stars of world theatre and scenography.

“PQ is a gathering place – it brings together the international community of scenographers, directors, students, and artists, as well as visitors from around the world who, throughout the 11 days of the festival, will experience the contemporary world through the lens of stage design together. ‛Perception’ is key this year. We want to show that a scenography display does not have to be a mere exhibition of objects. Thanks to human creativity and fantasy, scenography enables us to experience unique moments,” says PQ 2019 artistic director Markéta Fantová.
