16.10.2008 | Left Wing of Industrial Palace burned down

 Left Wing of the Industrial Palace of the Exhibition Grounds Prague, where the Prague Quadrennial traditionally takes place, has burned down.

Prague Quadrennial information

We are sorry to inform you that the Left Wing of the Industrial Palace of the Exhibition Grounds Prague, where the Prague Quadrennial traditionally takes place, has burned down. The ceiling of the Left Wing has fallen down, due to serous fire, around 7.30 p.m. on October 16th, 2008.

The Right Wing as well as the Central Hall have not been on fire. Damage in these two spaces of the Industrial Palace is not yet known but will probably be quite serious considering the steel construction that was connecting all of the three main spaces.

At this point we are not sure what this will mean for the Prague Quadrennial 2011, as we have no information on the possible reconstruction of the Palace. The call for applications is still planned to be issued in February 2009.
