Closing Date: 19.8 2018. MeetFactory welcomes the submission of projects from Czech and international authors, for consideration to participate in the Kostka Gallery 2019 exhibition program.
Kostka Gallery is characterized by its non-gallery typology and variable conditions influenced by weather change conditions, among other things. The Gallery premises, converted from what used to be the boiler room of a technical glass manufacturing works, are shaped as a Cube (Cube = Kostka in Czech). The space is neither heated in wintertime nor air conditioned in summertime, and it is not insulated against humidity.
The Call is addressed (although not exclusively) to authors of projects who can, thematically or technically, make a good use of the specific conditions offered by the Gallery premises and who succeed to incorporate the variability and coincidences of the Gallery’s environment in the creative process. Authors active in the fine arts, architecture, design, stage design and related disciplines are encouraged to apply.
Two to three different time slots, of 4-5 weeks standard duration, are available for the exhibition during January–March 2019 or June–August 2019.
