10 Maj - 31 Październik 2017, Olomouc

CEAD & the Olomouc Museum of Art announce an Open Call for artists at the occasion of the exhibition of Jozef Jankovič (October 12 2017 – March 11, 2018), one of the most prominent representatives of post-war Slovak art. 

National and international artists of all backgrounds and areas are encouraged to apply with their art projects in an electronic form:
moving/static image, animation, video, new media.

The application deadline is October 31, 2017.


Recommended areas of artistic projects
1  The topic of the flow of time and the reflection of changes occurring in the society (social-cultural, historic, political factors) in relation to an individual; post-conceptual interpretation (electronic image/video in a synergy with a space, an object, the surrounding environment).

2  An intervention in Jozef Jankovič‘s work freely developing his original morphology within your own artistic expression.

3  The use of processes of the common artistic fields in the area of new media and current technologies (after Jankovič who became one of the pioneers of computer graphics in the Slovak visual art).


All artistic projects will be continuously presented on large screens (aspect ratio 9:16 – vertically installed screen in FULL HD) in the Olomouc Museum of Art lobby (from the moment of their receipt until the end of the exhibition, i.e. 11 March 2018).

On 8 November 2017 (at the occasion of Jozef Jankovič‘s anniversary), a public presentation of selected artistic projects in the form of large-screen projections on the premises of Jankovič‘s exhibition in the Olomouc Museum of Art will be held.
