Agnieszka Wysocka. Architecture in the service of art – contemporary museums and galleries – lecture
A lecture from the Bydgoszcz Academy of Art cycle
Architecture in the service of art – contemporary museums and galleries
This year’s theme is “Collections and collectors”. In line with the subject matter, I’m going to talk about the places where you can see precious collections – public and private ones. How museums and galleries are changing; how antique objects are presented; how curators, using the latest media, prepare exhibitions – all of this will be discussed during the “Architecture in the service of art – contemporary museums and galleries” meeting. In recent years, in Poland there has been many interesting realisations. Old buildings are adapted for the needs of museums (the Warsaw Rising Museum) or new, spectacular ones are built, like the Krakow Cricoteka on the Vistula, dedicated to the work of Tadeusz Kantor.
