Open call – Momentum Gallery, march 2022

Last December we had a pleasure of hosting an amazing international exhibition “Traces of the Future” – we presented works by 18 Artists who responded to our open call. Now we’re inviting you to another open call for the exhibition “No longer valid”. Below you’ll find exhibition and all technical info. Open call is open till 21.02. 6pm (CET).

We’re looking forward your works!

No longer valid

Exhibition title is No longer valid and we’re looking for artworks dealing with losses and abandoned meanings wishing for a ray of nostalgia. Do not dive into easy pathways and nostalgic moods from the past. Find today’s stories that already seem to be no longer valid. Spaces that no longer serve their purposes, identieties that are still „in progress”, goods that no longer should be made or bought, trends that seem attractive but smell like past.

We do not look for answers, we’re looking for poetic statements from different parts of the world.

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).

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.
