Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space
The Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space (PQ) was established in 1967 to bring the best of design for performance, scenography, and theatre architecture to the front line of cultural activities to be experienced by professional and emerging artists as well as the general public. The quadrennial international exhibitions, festivals, and educational programs act as a global catalyst of creative progress by encouraging experimentation, networking, innovation, and future collaborations.
I had the honor to be apart of the NZPQ19 design team which consisted of the design and curation of the New Zealand exhibition at the quadriennial. The NZPQ19/ Te āhua tū wātea exhibition operated as a transformative space, facilitating the performative nature of the works made by New Zealand artists and designers - Meg Rollandi, Stephen Bain, Kasia Pol, Daniel Belton, and Marty Roberts. A space of possibilities and potential, a space where performance may form, inhabit, emerge, and begin.
