Graphic with the name of the event.

September 25, 12:00


When compared to other European countries, such as Germany, Great Britain or Austria, the Polish art market is still relatively small. Yet, it is steadily growing and expanding onto new groups of investors. In addition to private apartments, in Poland, contemporary art is exhibited in hotel lobbies and in large spaces of modern office buildings. Private collections of contemporary art are a significant supplement to the collections stored and displayed by public cultural institutions.


The lecture referred to the exhibition “Collection of the «Znaki czasu» Lesser Poland Foundation of the Museum of Contemporary Art”, organised in 2006 at the BWA Gallery in Olkusz. The host focused on the following questions: who and why collects contemporary art in Poland? Is collecting more than a capital investment? What collecting strategies dominate in Poland?
