ARTWALL:LINK

ARTWALL: LINK is an accompanying exhibition project of Artwall Gallery located in the premises of the Prague public transport. The project presents the work of Czech and foreign artists in spaces that are commonly used for advertising. Posters in trams and subways, city lights, billboards and plasma screens give rise to a temporary exhibition space, located in the high traffic areas of the city.

ARTWALL: LINK is not only a gallery project in public space, but also a connection between street and cyberspace. Due to the massive development of online communities and social networks in recent years, the Internet has become a daily meeting place, much like an alternative street. To maintain a continuous flow of communication, many people stay connected almost constantly, via their smart phones. ARTWALL: LINK tries to enter this new time in space where individuals simultaneously exist in reality and virtuality. Works displayed on posters and city lights have another hidden level that can be discovered only through scanning the included QR code into a smartphone. This takes the active viewer to an online gallery, where the second, hidden halves of the exhibited works can be discovered. The concrete streets become a part of cyberspace and cyberspace becomes a part of the concrete streets.

In May - April 2012 ARTWALL Gallery presented six separate art projects, exhibited in the form of large-scale prints mounted on trams.  This series was created as a curatorial selection of individual projects that - through their quality and significance - did well in meeting the criteria of an artwork in public space. 

Vladimír Havlík - Language and Power

Markus Hippmann - Human Image

Wolfram Kastner - Art not War

Markéta Kinterová - Rituals

Marcel Mališ - Lebensraum
