In 2020, the 7th International Public Art Festival Art Prospect simultaneously brings together 23 cities and 13 countries in an online-offline format. The festival showcases augmented reality works at the Ivan Gaza Palace of Culture (St. Petersburg), as well as interventions viewable both online and offline. This new format allows us to host scheduled events despite the COVID-19 pandemic by abiding by safety guidelines, and to significantly expand the festival audience. Art Prospect’s theme for 2020 is Treasure Hunt. Treasure is a metaphor for a “new age, ” for our artists’ emotions and experiences while isolated and their interpretation of the boundaries between public and private.

During the festival dates (October 15–18, 2020), residents in each of the participating artists’ cities were able to see in person works (interventions) that the artists have created in their own public/visible yet private zones — balconies, windows, yards and courtyards — or while socially distancing (on bridges, at intersections, in the mountains).
