The Digital Hole: [PRESENT ESCAPISM]

The Digital Hole was born out of intersecting needs: to showcase artists and their work safely in the midst of a Pandemic; to address the repercussions of COVID-19 on the state of our society – politically, environmentally, emotionally; and to display pertinent work outside of the often inaccessible [or impractical] ‘fine art’ gallery world.


Beyond the traditional white cube and the increasingly popular black box, The Digital Hole aims to display artists and their work in the most widely accessible manner: solely online. While all mediums are accepted, the works in this exhibition are selected based on both their merit as ‘art objects’ - if that is what they are - and on their ability to be accessed online.


The theme for this call is: [PRESENT ESCAPISM]

This juried, virtual exhibition will be hosted on our website:


The application is NOW OPEN. There is no application fee.


A $150 honorarium will be awarded to Best in Show; three $100 honorariums will be awarded to three Honorable Mentions. These winners will be invited to participate in a panel discussion in late May/early June (date TBD).  


Deadline to apply: April 1st, 2021


Exhibition dates: April 26th – June 31st

Open call Pragovka gallery 2022: connection

The call and criteria for the submisson :

Download form:
Please, read both.


Pragovka for Art, z.s., announces an open call for exhibition projects to the Pragovka Gallery for 2022.

Deadline for applications: 8 April 2021 (23:59) / Projects sent after this deadline will not be included in the selection procedure.

Currently, Pragovka Gallery is located on the ground floor of building E, in Pragovka, and is divided into three separate galleries: Pragovka Gallery Rear, Pragovka Gallery Entry, Pop-up (+ Foyer). Due to the reconstruction, it is planned to move the entire gallery (still within the building) before January 2022. The originally architecturally separated space will be replaced by one column hall, which we intend to use a variable system of panels, which can be adapted to the requirements of individual exhibition units. The total area of the new premises will be 1100 m2 for up to 4 simultaneous projects. However, we are not opposed to larger projects either. The future space of the gallery will focus more on presenting authorial projects (these we suppose to work further with curatorial team of Pragovka Gallery), intertwining with the guest curators.


The exhibition program will be anchored by thematic acts, however, it is also open to artistic interventions and other projects that will have their place in the context of the exhibition plan.


The opencall is open to works of art without curatorial participation in the announced topics for the first time to residents of Pragovka (under the subsequent curatorial guidance of members of the gallery team), but also to longer-term curatorial cooperation.


In total, applications can be made in two main categories, both of which can be submitted with two applications relating to the topics listed below:
- Works of art (final curating project by the Pragovka for Art, z.s. team is assumed)
- Guest curator (just 3 curatorial projects; in case of two applications mark application 1a, 1b, 1c, application 2a, 2b, 2c.)



The CALL: Connection
1. Captured in time and space
2. Digital and morphic fields
3. Desire to connect

Folklore and Traditions



Call for Exhibition - Accepted media: Photography, Digital Visual Design, Video

Group Exhibition in Rome or Milan city, Italy. October 2021



Photographers, Visual Designers and Video artists are invited to submit 1 to 3 works addressing the theme.


Pictures cannot be considered to be merely documents. They are also able to capture, preserve, interpret and reinvent occurrences, situations, places that are progressively disappearing or - on the contrary - still surviving, like folklore and traditions. This call aims to collect photographs that are capable of catching the essence, the traditional part of our society - e.g. agricultural objects that are not in use anymore, practices or celebrations, folkloristic costumes, ethnic museums and collections. In other words, everything reminding us of our roots, of the most genuine side of the society we live in.


Deadline 7 July 2021
