PROJECT OF THE INTERNATIONAL TRAVELING EXHIBITION HELPFUL ART IN COVID
About the exhibition
The first traveling exhibition Helpful Art in Covid mapped the art of hundreds of artists from 60 countries and presented over 2,000 works
It was born in the minds of artists during a pandemic, whose activities almost 100% shifted to cyberspace, where they could share their thoughts with everyone.
The first and unfortunately the last realized stop was the Prague Exhibition Grounds as part of the multicultural festival Prague September.
The aim of the exhibition was to travel to other cities and countries, connect with local artists and continue to map this new kind of art Art Covid.
Covid's pandemic hit the world, and artists from around the world responded. With this exhibition we want not only to thank, but mainly to map the unique work in the Czech Republic, as well as the broad-spectrum creative process in the world.
…. This is also the exhibition Helpful Art in Covid
The first exhibition of the international project Helpful Art in Covid was created in Prague on the occasion of the restart of the cultural season at the multicultural festival PRAGUE SEPTEMBER - JDU OUT. The festival took place from 8 to 28 September 2020 at the Prague Exhibition Grounds in Holešovice and brought together various music, theater, art, design and other festivals, which were canceled in the spring of 2020 due to Covid. For three weeks, Prague shone with art again.

The agency and the Helpful Art in Covid exhibition were written and filmed by videos of press agencies - such as the Spanish EFE, the French AFP, the Czech CTK and others. Articles have been published in the media of many countries.
Face masks have become a separate field of art. In the spring of 2020, we dealt with their shortage in a typically Czech way, ourselves. Face masks and other protective equipment were made at home by the whole nation. Old and new sewing machines were taken out, and face masks began to be sewn throughout families, including actors, singers, and designers. They did not sew only for themselves, but also for their friends, for hospitals, retirement homes and also for integrated rescue services. This created the Czech phenomenon of the production of home curtains, absolutely unique in the world.
