The ING Polish Art Foundation Prize
The ING Polish Art Foundation has been supporting artists for the last 19 years by building a unique collection of Polish contemporary art. During this year's Warsaw Gallery Weekend, for the third time we will award one of the artists by selecting and acquiring a new artwork for our collection.
This year the following jury will make a choice:
Nicolaus Schafhausen – curator
Małgorzata Smagorowicz-Chojnowska – contemporary art collector
Hanna Wróblewska – director of Zachęta – National Gallery of Art
Kamila Bondar i Marcin Kryszeń – board of the ING Polish Art Foundation
The Foundation's Prize is an acknowledgement of not only the artists, but also the galleries taking part in WGW, which have been buliding the position of the Polish art scene on an international art market. Thanks to their efforts, today's Warsaw art scene is one of the most active in Europe. Warsaw Gallery Weekend is an opportunity to visit the exhibitions, but also to buy art. Private funding is vital for the development of the local art scene and is a gesture of support towards Polish artists. We encourage both private collectors and corporations to start the extraordinary adventure of collecting contemporary art.
