Momentum Gallery 04: Light Surface, KRAKERS Fringe

Space that sings, sings in polyphony. Sings about cities, sunrise and sunset. About laundry in the street and a forest. Stories from the neighborhood. About shapes, forms, things left behind that never sleep as they simply seem dead. One day they arise and sing. Those are their stories.
Momentum Gallery 04: Light Surface is a meeting with unseen narratives. Visual stories from around the world (Argentina, Cuba, Vienna, Krakow) referring to unchangeable paradoxes that are timeless. Referring to forms, tissues, fotons, structures – those that even when there is (NO) Hope, still exist, still unseen, but always present.

Artists for Farm of Life – summary

Artists for Farm of Life is a unique event as it combines different groups of people, sometimes estranged to each other. This year, again, artists decided to support foundation „Wspólnota Nadziei” and so they donated their works. Works were presented during an exhibition in Krakow in SARP Gallery. Then all of them went to charity auction.

And so – over 120 works (!) were sold for over 85 k zł. This is a huge outcome and great support for the Więckowice house – center for adults with autism.

AP KunstArt Fund Team proudly supported this event and we’re very happy with the outcome.

33rd KRAKOW INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF COMPOSERS

For the second time we’re happily and proudly supporting Krakow International Festival of Composers.

This time in the programme we highly recommend you to pay attention to composers: Lera Auerbach, Kataryna Gryvul, Martyna Kosecka, Grażyna Pstrokońska-Nawratil! Please follow our information on niemuzeum social media channels and – for now – reserve your time between 10-18th April for concerts.

Artists for Farm of Life

We’re very happy to announce that we’re supporting “Artists for Farm of Life” event organised by Wspólnota Nadziei Foundation since 2006, which is centered around an art exhibition and charity auction supporting home for adult people with autism.

Many artists shared theirs artworks, like Rafał Olbiński, Beata Malinowska-Petelenz, Iwona Siwek-Front, Krzysztof Ludwin and many many more.

Interior. Light. Shadow competition (Wnętrze. Światło. Cień)

Since the very beginning AP KunstArt Fund leads it’s educational project and profile niemuzeum. In 2020 we supported another great educational project – polish competition – Wnętrze. Światło. Cień.

Interior is really heart and soul of the building . “Interior. Light. Shadow” competition in organised yearly by Chair of Housing Design with honourable patronage of Dean of Architecture Faculty of Technical University in Krakow and SARP – Krakow.

2020 theme: „Space inspired by art”

Theme for the task was to design a chosen interior (either a flat or a public space) with entrance space, garden, public space, small architecture or greenery – inspired with a chosen work of art.

Art is an important part of our lives and – sometimes – also a part of the space we spend time in. Architect or designers work is – or could be – connected with using work of art or cooperation with artists. We encourage to use visual arts as an inspiration for creating an original interior. Object could be used as an inspiration for lightening, forms, color or mood. Artworks used as inspiration should be used from public domain (copyrights – 70years after authors death).

Coronavirus

Coronavirus changed everything. Or almost everything. Cancelled our plans – two events during KRAKERS, concert in Vienna during WOW Signal Festival and other. A3 exhibition in MAG Gallery, which we managed to support right before the pandemic – of course got closed. Everyone, also our Foundation got hit by this global change.

We believe we’ll meet each other soon – live. Today we encourage you to stay in touch with art via online channels. Check our niemuzeum website and instagram profile.

Stay healthy!

Momentum Gallery 02: MOT/her KC

KRAKERS 2020, Momentum Gallery, Zamoyskiego Street 27/17

23 and 24.04.2020, 6:30-9:30 pm

The personal is political once radical feminist idea of Carol Hanisch, in “mot/her” is realised by personal Anna Wańtuch’s narrative. She leads an intimate story directly to the camera. Herstory in Mot/Her is a reality of borderland – indeterminate, open, searching for approval in social context. Intimate video arts od FA Collective create a space of meanings re-creating, constituing and negating itself at the same time. Meanings like pregnancy, womanhood, feminism, choice, society, politics, family, social expectations towards women – this is the world in FA Collective videos.

Mot/Her KC started at the beginning od 2017 and consists of 29 videos, realised weekly, same day, during Artists pregnancy. It’s a documentation od personal events and experiences. FA Collective dives deep into discourse of woman’s body, mind and identity questions in social and political context.

A3 exhibition opening

5.03. 2020. 7pm in MAG Gallery (Szeroka Street 32) feel invited to the opening of “A3” exhibition – works by three architects: Małgorzata Mizia, Beata Malinowska-Petelenz and Mariusz Twardowski.

Architecture has and – truly is – an impact. Social, cultural, financial. It’s a reality connecting business, creatives and politics. Architecture is also a story. About values, challenges, possibilities. And somewhere between those meaning one can find free thinking realized by architects with non-technical field.

“A3” exhibition presents artistic mindset of three architects-professors of Architecture Faculty of Technical University in Krakow – Małgorzata Mizia, Beata Malinowska-Petelenz and Mariusz Twardowski. Work with color or ascetic black and white searches, nature and phisicality of form – those are the ways followed by the artists.

“A3” in MAG Gallery is really a chain-like exhibition, a narrative built out of three independent – but at the same time coexisting – exhibitions of painting, drawing, ceramics and photography. Artists are looking for inspiration not only about architecture or its form. Architecture and inspiration happens in between discipline and freedom. Between idea and pragmatics. Authors – all of them architects – see those spaces differently.


A3 | ceramics talk by Małgorzata Miza – ceramics, enamel and non figurative paintings created during interdisciplinary workshops. Work with color and surface structure, used differently in each technique, is an important part of authors expression.


A3 | exploration of form  by Beata Malinowskia-Petelenz is an invitation to the world of visual contrasts. Exhibition is created by abstract series “Ferrofluctuations” and drawings which are an aftermath of touristic and scientific travels. It’s and explosion of color and organic structure with simplicity and architecture’s discipline.


A3 | architecture of nature  by Mariusz Twardowski consists of national parks photography. Nature and it’s pure and original form happened to be an inspiration for the author. That’s how this contemplative, non-architectural composition was created. Made in USA.
