Polish contemporary art talks in the Eternal City

ROME- The Polish Institute of Rome and the Pastificio Cerere Foundation have come together to organise two separate event nights titled, ‘What’s the Weather in Poland?’ showcasing the talents of four Polish contemporary artists.

 The events are the brainchild of Marcello Smarelli, the artistic director of the Pastificio Cerere Foundation and Ania Jagiello, the executive of contemporary art at the Polish Inistute of Rome.

 ‘What’s the weather in Poland?’ aims to provide a glimpse into the Polish contemporary art scene, after four young Italian curators embarked on a year’s trip to Poland in order to research the recent trends in Polish art.

 The four curators, Simone Ciglia, Alessandra Troncone, Marco Trulli and Saverio Verini spent time in the Polish cities of Bytom, Krakow, Warsaw and Lodz and entered into direct contact with the reality of the Polish contemporary art scene.

 Consequently, they have chosen to further their research and spread the Polish modern art movement by inviting four Polish artists to present at the Pasticio Cerere Foundation in Rome.

 The talks will take place on two separate days with artists Alicja Bielawska and Cezary Poniatowski on Monday and Dominik Ritszel and Jakub Woynarowski on Friday.

 Both talks will be followed by a DJ set from Lutto Lento and Raffica Soundsystem in the internal courtyard of the Pasticio Cerere.

 With the addition of the events, the Pasticio Cerere Foundation confirms its role as a cultural hub, a vital centre for experimentation and formation of various cultural disciplines.
