"Vortex of our Dreams" American Design at the 2015 Prague Quadrennial Exhibit

Kent State’s College of the Arts and University Libraries present Vortex of our Dreams: American Design at the 2015 Prague Quadrennial!

The Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space, founded in 1967, is the largest event in the world to explore theatre performance design in its entirety. Held every four years in Prague, the quadrennial surveys the latest trends and accomplishments in stage design and scenography, featuring submissions from more than 60 countries.

The U.S. has been represented at every quadrennial since 1972 by the United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT), the national association for performing arts and entertainment professionals who work in design, technology and production. In its submissions to the quadrennial, USITT aims to showcase the best in both student and professional design for theatre.

The images and videos in this exhibition are a small portion of those included in the United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT) - USA Exhibit at the 2015 Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space. This exhibit asks you to focus on the art of design, as you engage in environments from the real to the surreal.
