“Making the acquired collections available to Polish and foreign audiences by organising temporary exhibitions and creating a permanent exhibition of the Museum” is one of the statutory aims of Wrocław Contemporary Museum and the subject of the second meeting in the series “One Hundred Questions about the Collection.”

The exhibition Marta’s Birthday initiates the Private Mythologies project, whose goal is to create a permanent space for the international collection of contemporary art of Wroclaw Contemporary Museum. Making the MWW collection public is a good time to look at it from the inside – learn about how it is created and the people responsible for its contents.

The second meeting will be an opportunity to follow the process of presenting the collection, which culminated in the opening of the exhibition Private Mythologies. Marta’s Birthday.

— What is the purpose of presenting contemporary art collections, and who are the audience?
— What does the process of preparing the collection for exhibition look like?
— How many people are involved?
— What challenges need to be overcome?
— Does the conservator influence the display of the exhibition?
— Are all the works presented at the Private Mythologies exhibition original?

If you are interested in answers to any of these questions – we invite you to join the conversation with:
Joanna Kobyłt, collection curator, and
Karolina Lizak, conservator of artworks.

Moderator: Anna Krukowska.
