organized by Prague Quadrennial / Arts and Theatre Institute (ATI)
June 6–16, 2019
Fragments showcased the work of living legends, designers who have become a beacon of the profession and whose body of work continues to inspire new generations of artists and audiences alike. Each of 26 participating countries contributed a single piece from a single artist of their choosing, with the overall exhibition then having been curated and arranged by international theatre designer Klára Zieglerová.
In addition to the physical exhibition, two formal efforts were made to connect these “living-legends” with emerging designers. Throughout the exhibition, “forums” were organized where exhibiting designers gathered and shared their work and careers with gathered emerging performance creators and the general public. Each artist was also asked to engage with emerging designers – either through a mentorship arrangement or through similar forum dialogues – in their home country.
