Culture Center Promotes Young Artists

The Villa Karisse cultural center in Izabelin, west of Warsaw, is planning a fresh program of visual and performing art events to mark its third year in business.

The center, adapted from an old house in the Kampinos National Park, began operating in 2013 thanks to the support of Polish-Australian architect Mark Krawczynski.

Under the auspices of the Polska Przyszło¶ć (Poland—the Future) Foundation, the center seeks to offer a diverse international artistic program addressing various fields of artistic expression.

“My aim was to not only create an art gallery with a rich and varied program, but also to stimulate the marketplace through new means of expression and appreciation,” says Krawczynski, who among his many projects was the supervising architect on the complicated project of expanding the Sydney Opera House underwater. “All artistic exchanges and outdoor workshops which we organize, as well as the cultural events which take place within the gardens of Villa Karisse, are intended to develop a positive identity for the community. I want to remold the old format of limited exposure for artists in Poland, which did not provide adequate marketing or financial rewards. I juxtapose the works of established artists such as Andrzej Konwerski, Gustaw Zemła and even overseas artists, with the creations of our young Polish artists who usually do not start to develop their vision for their future until after they leave the walls of their art academies.”

Villa Karisse attracts special interest from diplomats and art collectors, who are looking for unique locations to experience artistic creativity. At the same time, this encourages young artists who want to experiment with their talents.
