The highest-located art gallery in Warsaw has opened in the city’s tallest skyscraper, the Warsaw Trade Tower at 51 Ch³odna St.

n Housed on the tower’s 35th floor, the gallery has kicked off with an exhibition entitled Debuts featuring work by 36 promising young Polish photographers.

The exhibition, which will run until Sept. 18, showcases artists whose work is featured in a new book that contains a selection of their work, along with information about the photographers.

The publication will be available at 100 of the world’s most important cultural institutions where photography is exhibited, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Modern in London, the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, and the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris.

Grzegorz Kosmala, the originator of the project, said the exhibition aims to provide “strong support” for debuting Polish photographers embarking on an international career.

According to Vera Wagner, asset manager at the Warsaw Trade Tower, the belief that art belongs only in traditional galleries and museums is becoming obsolete. “Both artists and investors are aware of that,” said Wagner. She added that the Warsaw Trade Tower aimed to serve as an example of good practice by supporting young artists.

The event’s organizers are doc! photo magazine and cotra doc! art photography magazine.

The exhibition is open every day until Sept. 18 from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Free admission.
