In Progress 19.09.14–02.02.15 Exhibition (Piątek), godz. 18.00, poziom 0, wstęp bezpłatny (Friday), 6:00 PM, level 0, free admission

The in progress exhibition features a selection of installations, film recordings, videos and photographs created between 1965 and 2012 from the collection of the Lower Silesian Society for the Encouragement of Fine Arts, and contextual audiovisual materials from the archives of the WRO Art Center.
 
The exhibition offers an overview of media art history from the perspective of the Wrocław collection. It attempts to identify those works that could be perceived as focal points which established the chronology and constructed narratives around key issues in the development of the field, such as video and multimedia, performance and action art, time, interactivity and connectivity.
 
Selected works by renowned international artists, including those from younger generations, offer complex threads of interpretation and are representative of media art as a phenomenon that is constantly bringing itself up to date with the development of technology and current trends in contemporary culture.
 
The title of the exhibition, which refers to Jacek Szleszyński’s 1996 computer animation, emphasizes the process of media art development, which is a multidirectional phenomenon that has run parallel to the main stream of contemporary art and is currently coming closer to its core. The title is also a reference to the place of media art in the collection. The programmatic intention was to build a collection around the installation, a prevalent contemporary genre, and the new means of creation being employed by this art form: from photography, film and video to the media of communication.
 
The scope of the exhibition has been broadened to include a selection of video works available as a multimedia application and contextual materials in the form of interviews with artists who take up issues connected with new media art. Most of the interviews were conducted by Piotr Krajewski, Violetta Kutlubasis-Krajewska, and Agnieszka Kubicka-Dzieduszycka during the events accompanying the WRO International Sound Basis Visual Art Festivals, the WRO Polish Monitor, and the WRO Media Art Biennale. Other materials include TV programmes produced by WRO in cooperation with TVP Polish Television.
 
The transcribed interviews and Kama Wróbel’s conversations from 2009-2010 with artists whose works were shown during previous presentations of the Wrocław collection are included in the publication accompanying the exhibition.
