Over the four evenings of the festival, prominent figures in lighting design from the Czech Republic and abroad will change the streets and public spaces of Prague, both its most famous historical landmarks and less well-known nooks and crannies, into objects d’art and spaces that use unconventional forms to capture the varied sides of contemporary and historical Prague.
Organisers say that for the first time it will have a common theme, the centenary of the foundation of Czechoslovakia. This will be reflected in the involvement of an unusually high number of Czech artists.
The sixth edition of the Signal festival will run Oct. 11–14; the 24 installations will appear in 8 Prague’s districts:
The exhibits will be open from 7 pm to 11 pm. The opening ceremony will take place on October 11 at 7 pm at Karlínské square. Around half a million people are expected to attend.
Those who prefer more atmospheric sites can visit the installations outside of the main routes, or the gallery area with installations inside major Prague buildings.
