It’s a good weekend for art fans in Krakow. In addition to the opening of the “American Dream” exhibition at the National Museum that occurred earlier this week, an accompanying vernissage will take place in the Pauza Gallery.
Located on the second floor of the townhouse that hosts both the Pauza bar and danceclub, the Pauza Gallery will host the opening of the “Przez most” (“Across the Bridge”) exhibition, curated by Karolina Harazim. The object at the centre of the event is none other than the Brooklyn Bridge, that iconic object of American culture. The exhibition consists of photographs and paintings of the bridge by several artists, both established and amateur, representing the American Dream of opportunity so often symbolized by New York City.
Across town, the Solvay Contemporary Art Centre, located at ul. Zakopiańska 62, will be the setting for an exhibition by British artist and Krakow resident Stuart Wilson, simply titled “Stuart Wilson: Malarstwo” (“Stuart Wilson: Paintings”). Wilson studied art at the Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design at the University of the Arts London. A graphic designer by trade, but seeking to broaden his spectrum of artistic interest, Wilson is currently trying his hand in the field of painting. The outcome of these struggles comprises the current exhibition, which will be on view through the end of the month.
