For thirty years, the Gallery of the International Cultural Centre at Rynek Główny 25 in Krakow has been presenting a selection of the most outstanding art, architecture and cultural phenomena of Central Europe. Max Ernst. An Ornithologist's Dreams, The Myth of Galicia, Košice Modernism and Andy Warhol. Contexts are the titles of just four out of one hundred and sixty exhibitions that took place over three decades in the gallery spaces of the ICC.
The 30th anniversary is an opportunity to recall selected moments from the ICC’s exhibition history together with the contexts that accompanied individual shows as part of the series of meetings for seniors Mature for Art inaugurated in 2011. The series of lectures titled Decades with Art is an original selection of topics, updated, extended and supplemented with a discussion of one – each time different – exhibition that will allow the participants to revisit the rich and varied activities of the International Cultural Centre.
Meetings are held on-line via Zoom platform, every last Monday of the month at 12.00. Participation in lectures is free of charge. To receive a link to participate, please send an application to the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
