The exhibition my gallery is an idea. galeria adres archive reconstructs the history of Galeria Adres, the independent artistic institution run by Ewa Partum between 1972 and 1977 in Łódź. Galeria Adres collaborated with Krzysztof Wodiczko, Zbigniew Warpechowski, Dick Higgins, Richard Kostelanetz, Jochen Gerz, Endre Tót, Ben Vautier, Eric Andersen, among other artists. It formed part of an international artistic network that ran across the cold war East-West division and functioned beyond official communication channels. Materials gathered in the Archive of Galeria Adres is presented in its entirety for the first time since 1977. The exhibition also features Ewa Partum’s works from the collection of Galeria Studio in Warsaw and the artist’s intervention, created specifically for this occasion, which refers to the International Film Festival organised by Galeria Adres in 1977.
