Venue: The Xawery Dunikowski Museum of Sculpture
Dates: Until 6 August, 2017
The exhibition tells the story of a strong culture-forming link between the two capitals: the political-Warsaw and the winter one- Zakopane. The show presents paintings by Zofia Stryjeńska or Witkacy's drawings from the twenties, fabrics and toys designed by the students of Antoni Kenar after the World War II or bold modernist designs of the shelter by the Morskie Oko (Eye of the Sea) from the fifties. The “connection” is continued by contemporary artists such as Janek Dziaczkowski or Zbigniew Rogalski.
The exhibition in Królikarnia in an intriguing way depicts how the myth of Tatras was constructed and asks the question if it is still present in polish art.
Exhibition title: Seven sisters
Artist/s: Ketuta Alexi-Meskhishvili, Dragana Bulut, Liz Craft, Barbara Leoniak, Nevine Mahmoud, Mélanie Matranga
Venue: Kasia Michalski Gallery
Dates: 1 June - 27 July, 2017
Inspired by such an unprecedented women’s march, Seven Sisters brings together the work of six international female artists whose practices of installation, sculpture, photography, film and performance evoke and deconstruct—with distance, humor and a recurring sense of poetry—the omnipresence of the feminine body in the public realm, and the mystified notion of interior and intimate space.
Exhibition title: Bródno Sculpture Park. Chapter 9
Artist/s: Paweł Althamer, Youssouf Dara, Olafur Eliasson, Jens Haaning, the group Nowolipie, Susan Philipsz, Katarzyna Przezwańska, Monika Sosnowska, and Rirkrit Tiravanija.
Venue: Bródno Park Kondratowicza/ Chodecka, Warsaw
Dates: Until 3 September, 2017
June is a perfect time to visit The Bródno Sculpture Park. The project was launched in 2009 as a joint initiative of the artist Paweł Althamer, the Targówek District, and the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw. The park functions as an evolving exhibition of contemporary art, presented outdoors and accessible to visitors 24 hours a day.
The 9th edition of the Bródno Sculpture Park is a “repeat” of museum materials. We review the 8 previous editions of the exhibition, revisiting our dear old friends: artists, works, realized and unrealized concepts.This year’s program includes initiatives helping stakeholders get to know one another better—museum staff, local audiences, tourists, recreational users of Park Bródnowski—and critical reflection on the functioning of the sculpture park here on the east side of the Vistula. This will include hikes from the Museum on the Vistula (in the Powiśle district) to the Bródno Sculpture Park, inspired by Situationist dérives (“drifts”); social consultations in the form of picnics; a flying university of art landing at community centres, libraries, prisons.
