On Saturday, April 21st, at 12:00pm, the eighth national edition of the Free Art Day will take place, with participation, among others, of the Municipal Gallery bwa in Bydgoszcz.
We selected five works from two current exhibitions: “Realism. Two Approaches” and “Alicja Kubicka. Painter’s Toolkit”. These will be paintings: Katarzyna Karpowicz’s “Blue Driver” (from the “Journeys” series), Aldona Mickiewicz’s “Pascal’s Jacket”, Natalia Rybka’s “You Look by Your Appearance”, and two paintings by Alicja Kubicka: “Painter’s Toolkit” and “The First Photograph”. By each of the selected works, the curators of the Municipal Gallery bwa (Agnieszka Gorzaniak, Danuta Pałys, Karolina Pikosz) will ask the participants of the Free Art Day questions, motivating them to reflect on them and gain courage to seek answers on their own. Its aim is to show that an object in a gallery can become a source of inspiration.
Free Art Day is a nationwide campaign during which visitors to museums and galleries focus on selected objects. All this in order to be able to focus properly on art. Research shows that visitors to museums spend statistically only eight seconds in front of each work of art. The result is that visitors literally “run through” the whole museum, then they are tired, angry and, worst of all, completely unable to say what they were watching. They become indifferent to art. We want to change that!
