WE INVITE YOU TO THE EXHIBITION
"The Galeria Studio Collection in Warsaw"
February 5, 2021
It is the first show of Galeria Studio’s outstanding art collection in a long time. When in 1972, Józef Szajna took over the management of the Studio Theater, he also established an art gallery and purchased the first works for the collection. Today, the collection of Galeria Studio has a thousand art objects. Among them are works by Magdalena Abakanowicz, Edward Dwurnik, Edward Krasiński, Erna Rosenstein, and Henryk Stażewski. The works of outstanding artists of Polish modernism in the collection are proof of the extraordinary artistic policy of this place, as well as innovative thinking about the interdisciplinary nature of a contemporary cultural institution.
Thanks to a special grant from the Warsaw City Hall, Galeria Studio has been undergoing reconstruction since 2018. In the first stage, the art collections were re-organized, the artworks were restored, new storage spaces were rented, specialized furniture was built for storing works, and equipment for conservation was purchased. In the next stage, we plan to digitize the collections, create a research archive of the collection and the Gallery, and further work on making them more accessible.
The exhibition Collection of Galeria Studio in Warsaw will be a summary of the first stage of the collection care program.
Curators: Natalia Andrzejewska, Dorota Jarecka, Paulina Olszewska
