The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Experience Multimedia Art in Prague


3. What to Do

View the "Case for Reoccurance of Child Illness" exhibit at Karlin Studios.  

Consider multimedia artists’ take on “The Future of the Future” (through October 25) at DOX Centre for Contemporary Art ($9), a three-level gallery and sculpture terrace that forges collaborations with international artists. Don’t miss Brooklyn-born cultural critic Norman Klein’s The Imaginary 20th Century, in which projections of whimsical drawings are set to original sound compositions (through October 24), and Gilbert and George: ROADS, a photography exhibit by the provocative duo known for shooting London skinheads (October 7 through January 2).

Savor the last of the season with "Heat" (through September 17), a free exhibit of summer-themed photography, paintings, and installations at Meet Factory. Helmed by famed Czech sculptor David Černý —the man behind the black sculptures of babies seen around the city—this modern-art gallery, cinema, and performance space also hosts international D.J.'s and bands.

Peek into the creative psyche in "Case for Reoccurrence of Child Illness” (September 22 through October 17), a group show at Karlin Studios depicting artists’ innermost thoughts. Seventeen artists’ studios are housed above the main exhibition space in this repurposed factory building, set in a quiet section of gentrifying Karlin. Check out the existentialist cartoons of Miroslav Barták, a renowned Czech artist who rarely shows in contemporary-art settings.
