Residency Program

After the launch of Prater Digital in December 2020, Prater Galerie will award two-week residencies in the digital gallery space to local and international artists. We invite artists to face the challenges of a digital exhibition space and to explore their own projects in the Prater Digital space.

It is not expected that a new art project developed for Prater Digital will be created during this time, rather the exploration of how one’s own work can function in a digital space should become visible. The focus will be on the following questions: What conditions are needed for artistic work to function in a digital exhibition space? Which formats are suitable to enable a productive exchange in the digital space with and about art? At the end of the residency, there will be a public presentation as part of Prater Digital’s evening conversation.

More information about the artists and their projects as well as the dates for the evening conversation will be announced. Documentation of the artist residency program can be found here.
