We cordially invite you to the first event of this year, where the traditional format of Open Studios Night is changing into a new form of Meet & Greet. The goal of this event is to provide an opportunity for closer contact and personal dialogue with artists in our community. You can look forward to meeting Patricia Chamrazova, KAIR’s Artist in Residence, who works with digital art, virtual and augmented reality, and creates audiovisual installations. Patrícia will share her experiences and projects she has worked on so far, as well as present her current research in residence. In addition, during Meet & Greet, you will meet Rachel Jutka, a visual artist who has recently returned from a two-month residency at Schafhof – European Art Forum Upper Bavaria in Germany. She will tell us all about her experience and the art project she worked on.
