Central to Centre of Contemporary Art‘s activity is the concept of ‘glocality’, or putting a global perspective on regional phenomena, providing a jumping-off point for the development of identity of an institution founded far from the centre. Centre of Contemporary Art’s programme is largely focused on the analysis of diverse collecting-related phenomena at anthropological, social, psychological and artistic levels.
Founded in 2008, the Centre of Contemporary Art is the newest and the biggest (over 4,000 square meters of gallery space) institution solely dedicated to contemporary art in Poland. With its inter-media and interdisciplinary formula, a multi-format program and international cooperation, Centre of Contemporary Art presents the most interesting facets of contemporary art and related discourse. Through exhibitions, artist talks, seminars, artist-in-residence, publications, education programs as well as establishing a permanent collection,Centre of Contemporary Art has committed itself to supporting contemporary art in Poland.
