THERE’S A LOT TO EXPLORE
The 11th Signal Festival, with the theme Ecosystems 01: Explore!, will present an installation by Czech artist Jan Kaláb using the play of perspective and color, a large-scale interactive work by Mexican-Canadian artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer that visitors create themselves thanks to thermal cameras, and for the first time an installation for children by creative studio 3dsense, which will be open daily from 2 pm until midnight. But that’s just the beginning.
This year, you can visit the largest gallery zone in history with 7 unique installations by Czech and international artists, accompanied by 13 free works including two video mappings.
The festival takes place from 12 to 15 October 2023.
WHAT IS THERE TO SEE IN THE GALLERY ZONE?
The foreign star will be the aforementioned Mexican-Canadian artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer with his interactive work Thermal Drift on Lyčkovo náměstí. In Hall 13 of the Holešovice Market Hall, the Spanish duo Playmodes will present the largest installation of this year’s edition called Horizon. The Polish collective Ksawery Komputery will prepare an interactive light installation Flux for the space of the baroque Invalidovna. Other unique artworks will take you to the Church of Salvator, Kunsthalle Praha, the Hybernská Campus, and the Museum of the City of Prague.
AND WHAT ELSE HAVE WE PREPARED FOR YOU?
The significant portion of the Signal Festival still remains free and this year will bring 13 unique artworks.
Among them, you will find the sculptural installation Irideus Bulla by the world-famous Czech artist Jan Kaláb, which will play a game of perspective, color, light, and rhythm on Republic Square in front of PALLADIUM. You can also look forward to conceptual artist Kateřina Šedá. She will create a two-year project for the Signal Festival called Pacific Prague Trail, which is a metaphor for the phenomenal long-distance Pacific Crest Trail. In the parking lot of the Andaz Prague Hotel, designer Václav Mlynář will present Puddles, a work that uses elements such as light, water, movement, sound, and space.
This year, we will also present two popular video mappings – Hungarian artist András László Nagy will light up the Prague Municipal Library building on Mariánské Square náměstí for the first time ever, and the iconic Church of Sts. Cyril and Methodius on Karlínské náměstí will be brought to life by the Japanese studio Flightgraf. The international programme of the Signal Festival 2023 is happening thanks to the support of the PPF Foundation.
The full programme, including a map, is already available on our website.
