PQ+ accompanying project of the Prague Quadrennial

The aim of the accompanying project of the 12th Prague Quadrennial, simply called PQ+, is to further develop PQ 2011’s interdisciplinary dialogue between various dramatic genres and an expanding definition of visual art.

PQ+ also featured the involvement of leading Czech cultural institutions: theatres, galleries, and independent art groups working in unconventional spaces.

The project’s main objective was to introduce to foreign and Czech PQ visitors and participants projects whose originality and excellence represent the Czech art scene in all genres including drama, performance art, dance, site-specific performances, physical theatre, and street theatre.
PQ+ also presented visual arts projects involving new media, painting, and installation art, as well as scenographic exhibitions, music, and a fashion show. 

Almost 80 unique and creative projects of 59 organizations and companies were selected to participate.

All selected organizators and projects are avalaible here.
