Open Call for Artists: Flow of Time at the occasion of the Jozef Jankovič Exhibition

January 7 2018, 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 extended until January 7, 2018.


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 day of their public presentation until the end of the exhibition, i.e. March 11, 2018).

The public presentation of selected artistic projects in the form of large-screen projections will be held on the premises of Jankovič‘s exhibition in the Olomouc Museum of Art (probably during February 2018, the exact date will be announced). 

The exhibition of Jozef Jankovič is being held on the anniversary of his eightieth birthday, at which time the art community was struck with the news of his sudden passing. Tribute is thus being paid to this leading personality of Slovak sculpture from the 2nd half of the 20th century. In addition to the recommended areas, there is space for open author's grasp  and various forms of artistic associations and other events besides the large-screen projection of videos that applicants will be invited to join to the personality and work of Jozef Jankovič. Please, send your suggestions to: opencall@olmuart.cz
