Contemporary art in historic setting
September 27, 2013
The historic palace in Boglewice, located about 40km from Warsaw will host on September 29 an exhibition of works by Polish contemporary artists entitled “W poszukiwaniu harmonii” (Seraching for harmony)
in a series of events promoting Poland’s modern art in places restored to cultural heritage.
One-day, transitory gallery is part of a broader idea of turning Boglewice into a centre of art in the neighbourhood of Warsaw.
Boglewice is a small village in the municipality of Jasieniec, located between Warka and Grójec. The palace, built by the Bersons family, surrounded by a six hectare park is in the process of renovation under the supervision of an art restorer. The palace, naturally, has its legend and the owners of the palace are pleased to open its doors wide for artists.
Just before the renovation the Open-Air Painting Workshops and Post Open-Air Exhibition were already organized here. The event attracted several hundred people in one day.
Series of events presenting important achievements in Polish contemporary art in places restored to cultural heritage, by reconstructing (often expanding) valuable architectural substance is a value of great significance in Poland - a country affected by an unprecedented cultural, material, intellectual and moral distortion. The art, its culture-forming role, its promotion among Polish and European elites is in such places especially distinct, impressive and, thus, effective. Historical background of the world’s art market development is also of paramount importance – it is sufficient to adopt, nurture and expand created patterns to give rise to authentic art market.
Organizers of the September 29 exhibition invite everyone interested in contemporary art to bring their family and friends, to bring picnic baskets and get some rest from the bustle of the city by interacting with real art.
