The Prague Quadrennial (PQ) was founded in 1967 as an international exhibition of theatre design and architecture. Over the years, it has become a unique platform that connects artists, institutions, professionals, researchers, students and the general public via various projects and activities. Once every four years, it all culminates in an 11-day festival in Prague.

The Prague Quadrennial is organized by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and realized by the Arts and Theatre Institute. It is open not only to official representation of countries and regions within the main exhibitions but also to independent artists and artist collectives, educators and students who can participate in the extensive program of additional projects.

The next 15th edition of the Prague Quadrennial will take place from 8th to 18th June 2023. Pražská Tržnice (the former Prague slaughterhouse and meat market) will serve as the main venue. The theme is the RARE: art springing out of ideas, materials, artistic approaches, and design practices that connect to the human level from within your environment, with its genius loci and unique situation. By this theme, the PQ responds to the changes in all areas of human life that the pandemic situation has accelerated and the physical experience has become rare.

The PQ 2023 will consist of:

a) Main exhibitions: Exhibition of Countries and Regions, Student Exhibition, Fragments
