CURRENTLY SHOWING EXHIBITIONS
Monika Drożyńska Warning! Bad Dog [exhibition of the winner of the Wrocław Drawing Triennial 2019]
Curator: Katarzyna Krysiak
It is an exhibition about welcoming guests and fear of visiting. About gold and holey teeth, bowel movements, German washing powder, sweat and ponglish. It features works from the Tablecloths series, made in the technique of hand embroidery on fabric. Each of them is an “essay” written with words, signs and pictures. The artist uses many alphabets, mixes phrases in different languages, refers to various iconographies, logotypes, symbols and graphic interpretations.
Jerzy Ludwiński Archive
A permanent exhibition and research space, combining elements of an exhibition, archive and art magazine. This triple structure reflects the main role of the Archive, which is to show the intellectual legacy of Jerzy Ludwiński and its importance for the formation of the Wrocław and Polish art scene in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Light Spectrum / Exposure to Colour. Orange – interactive installation in the Self-service Museum
Exhibition design: Patrycja Mastej and Magdalena Skowrońska
The exhibition Exposure to Colour. Orange is a multi-sensory space of perception of the colour orange. It is a place to experiment and find out how colour can be experienced first-hand. By awakening the whole body and engaging all senses, we develop creativity, explore our relationship boundaries and increase natural vitality while having fun together. The exhibition consists of six interactive zones that enable you to freely explore the space and play games that strengthen relationships.
Don’t Look Back [competition exhibition of the Wrocław Drawing Triennial 2022]
Curator: Patrycja Sap
The exhibition presents works by selected artists participating in this year’s Wrocław Drawing Triennial competition. The motto Don’t Look Back was chosen because of its topicality, semantic capacity and multiple associations, which gave artists the opportunity to explore various contexts and meanings, refer to ancient and recent history, the reality of the pandemic, new and old orders, culture and pop culture, religion, politics, as well as personal issues.
