HEART FOR HEART’S SAKE

Artery Prague’s CALL TO ARTISTS is now open for a new group exhibition titled “Heart for Heart’s Sake” scheduled to hang February 9th – 24th, 2018. The exhibition is meant to be a visceral response to February the 14th and its naive and simplified approach to love. We are not looking for broken hearts, but for those that are squashed and smashed, that stopped beating, those that are eaten as offal and are given away to be eaten as an offer. We are interested in carnal delights and frights, in the macabre, carnivalesque and dark inspirations of romance.

We invite all local and international artists, emerging and established, regardless of their backgrounds to send works in any medium that pertain to our general theme.

Please send photos of your work to arteryprague@gmail.com by 31.1.2018. The selection will be made on 1.2.2018 and the final works should arrive at the gallery by 8.2.2018
