On the occasion of the Warsaw Gallery Weekend (WGW) 2014 we have just visited eight very diverse positions. The main program of the WGW was supported by 21 local galleries and one guest gallery from Prague. Collateral events were supported by institutions such as Zacheta – National Gallery of Art, Center for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, National Museum in Warsaw, Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, Theatre Institute, Adam Mickiewicz Institute or Academy of Fine Arts. This year, the Warsaw Gallery Weekend showed a very precise and accomplished selection of what the reputation of the Polish art scene is based on. This video provides you with a tour through selected exhibitions that feature works by artists such as Aleksandra Chciuk, Andac Karabeyoğlu, Łukasz Filak, Magdalena Kulak, Kajetan Plis (Leto), Szymon Malecki, Tomek Sacilowski (Piktogram/BLA), Gudrun Kampl (Propaganda), Janek Zamoyski (Czułość), Erwin Kneihsl (SVIT), Aneta Grzeszykowska (Raster), Norman Leto (Center for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle), Piotr Łakomy (Stereo) and Andrzej Partum, Zbigniew Warpechowski, Roman Dziadkiewicz (Monopol). We also speak with Marta Kołakowska and Jacek Sosnowski, board members of the Warsaw Gallery Weekend.
