Gallery UM has prepared a special program Hang the DJ! UMPRUM Summer Hits Radio from the Bong during the Artsemestr Summer 2018. Untraditionally Gallery UM will present audiovisual experiments, concerts and DJ productions. All artists are or were part of the UMPRUM student community.
Hang the DJ! UMPRUM Summer Hits Radio from the Bong is a mixture of the musical worlds. Featuring various genres, musical sound fads and curiosities. The gallery will transform into a radio, where the authors mix and play with the music.
The sound part of the program will be accompanied by a visual presentation. Matúš Buranovský the author of the production, together with Jirka Macků have a similar creative approach to when it comes to audio/visual collaboration. “I work with various motives that I mix differently, sometimes they are representational; sometimes they are pushed to total abstraction, similar to music, having a lyrical character,” says Matúš Buranovský about the visuals.
The visitors can look forward to two large productions–concerts extended beyond standard gallery opening hours. The first one will be during the opening of the school exhibit of semestral and finals works Artsemestr Summer 2018. The beginning of the program will take place at the Gallery UM and then it will move toUnderdog´s, where the Afterparty of the Artsemester will take place. The second concert is planned to take place in the Gallery UM during the Prague museum night.
