25 Years of Art in Public Space

A new retrospective exhibition at the Ujazdowski Castle Center for Contemporary Art examines the role socially-engaged art plays in public space.

The exhibition is entitled What Is Public? The Ujazdowski Castle’s Activities in Public Areas (1988-2014). Visitors are presented with a review of high-profile art projects carried out in public space over the past quarter of a century, including Joanna Rajkowska’s Greetings from Jerozolimskie Avenue (2002), better known as “the Palm” on De Gaulle’a Traffic Circle in Warsaw. The projects are documented in photographs, models, installations and videos. According to Rajkowska, a public art project encompasses all its surroundings, including animals, geological features, organic and inorganic matter. “You can expand the concept of what is public,” Rajkowska says. “Everything you touch and start to set in motion becomes public subject matter. This is what we should be doing: taking all non-human factors into account.”

Other artists featured in the exhibition include Paweł Althamer, Lene Berg, Christian Boltanski, Jenny Holzer and Krzysztof wodiczko. Małgorzata Ludwisiak, director of the Center for contemporary Art, says the exhibition sums up 25 years over which the center explored the concept of public space and introduced art to it.

Until Sept. 27; Ujazdowski Castle Center for Contemporary Art; 2 Jazdów St.
