Entropy increases v.3.0 is a year-long project marking the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the Entropia Gallery in Wrocław, which includes events, exhibitions and publications. As the title suggests, the action is process-based, focusing on the steady growth and overlapping of artistic events.
We propose an evening of performance- and music-related events at Wrocław Contemporary Museum, which simultaneously fits in with the project idea and with MWW’s strategy of researching and commemorating the local artistic milieu. As one of the key venues connected with culture in Wrocław, the Entropia Gallery has promoted and popularised progressive contemporary art since its establishment.
The Entropia Gallery was set up in 1988 on the initiative of Alicja and Mariusz Jodko. It still functions as a venue for various creative initiatives and projects, exhibitions and education. The gallery holds film reviews and screenings, concerts, meetings, workshops, performances and presentations of new media art. It has become a permanent feature of the artistic life of the city while enjoying prestige in the national and international artistic environment.
