Contemporary - Mixed Medium

RCA x Prague's Academy of Arts Student Group Show - Highway-Mindway

Tue-Fri: 10-5pm

An exhibition collaboration between RCA & Prague’s Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design.

As a mindway - shared by students from the Graduate Diploma in Art and Design at the Royal College of Art in London and from Photography 2 studio at Prague's Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design - it brings together approaches to thinking about how we connect in cities and through digital highways in the Vitrínka Gallery of the Czech Centre in London and in form of a public installation in front of the Czech Embassy next door.

Following Josef Pleskot's reflection on city highways as scars or hardened arteries of the urban organism, the collaborative exhibition project Highway-Mindway challenges us to think differently about public spaces: how the highway as an architectural paradigm invites us to find new ways of understanding cities and communication alike.

Project led by: Wiebke Leister, Gary Clough (RCA); Alena Kotzmannová, Tomáš Souček, Alex Bykov (UMPRUM) and curator Michal Nanoru.
