The opening of the exhibition “ORIENT”

Bunkier Sztuki Gallery of Contemporary Art has the pleasure of  inviting you to attend the opening of the Orient exhibition at 6 p.m. on 21st September 2018.

The exhibition is a contemplation of the Central and Eastern European identity as well as of diverse artistic practices and approaches of the region’s artists. Pondering the state of the region, the exhibition’s curators realised that its inhabitants have many experiences, beliefs and patterns in common, and that their art, heretofore considered peripheral, has become attractive to a Western audience as well.

The exhibition encourages you to abandon obvious divisions and schematic thinking and reassess the Central Eastern European experience. It presents the works of contemporary artists who have ties to the region that up until recently was largely marginalized in the Western-centred history of art.

We invite you to take part in a performance, which scenography is comprised of the works that touch upon the themes permeating our mentality and culture. We will see scenes from the subjective history of Central and Eastern Europe from the late 1980s onwards that have shaped our current identity.

We will be honoured to spend this time with you.
