Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art
The Łaźnia Centre for Contemporary Art is guided by its mission of showing and promoting contemporary art as a means of expressing universal values, and an element of world cultural heritage. The centre does so by showing the latest developments in contemporary art, showing the process of change that art is undergoing, engaging cultural and social phenomena taking place around the world, and educating the public about these issues by organising of exhibitions, artistic exchanges, innovative educational programmes, academic conferences, lectures, concerts and film screenings.
We have organised numerous concerts, film presentations, meetings and panel discussions. In response to the great need for these types of events, in 2012, we opened an affiliate in Nowy Port – Łaźnia 2 Centre for Art Education, where, in addition to visiting exhibitions, visitors can take advantage of an art reading room, library, open animation studio, and cinema, and attend a wide range of classes and workshops. The job of adapting the Łaźnia 2 facility for cultural purposes was entrusted to us in 2008 as part of the revitalization of the Nowy Port district, and, in accordance with the name of the institution, it is located in a former public bathhouse at Strajku Dokerów 5 Street.
We have become one of Poland’s leading exhibition venues. In 2012, the gallery was one of seven Polish galleries listed among the 400 top places showing contemporary art in the world, by the prestigious Art Spaces Directory, published by New York’s New Museum of Contemporary Art in collaboration with ArtAsiaPacific.
