Every year the OSTRALE – international exhibition of contemporary arts – is unifying young emerging artists with international established artists, whom express themselves in all kinds of artistical genres over an exhibition area of more than 20,000 sq. metres. Artists from all over the world will deal with the issue of the 10th edition of the exhibition addressed to „error: X".
OSTRALE is designed as an independent platform for young artists, and intends to give them space for all forms of the artsitic genres – from painting to photography and sculpture and visual and performing arts, including painting, sculpture and installations, up to dance as well as performance and video art.
