PR dla Zagranicy
An exhibition of art from the collection of Polish businesswoman Grazyna Kulczyk has been launched at the gallery of the Santander Foundation in Madrid.
Entitled “Everybody is Nobody for Somebody”, it features over 100 works by 57 outstanding Polish artists, including Magdalena Abakanowicz, Roman Opalka, Alina Szapocznikow and Wojciech Fangor, as well as works by international artists.
Kulczyk told the Polish Press Agency that the idea is to highlight the interactions between artists in Poland and artists and trends worldwide in the 20th and 21st centuries.
In her view, there is great potential in Polish artists.
"There is a need for more state involvement in promotional efforts", Kulczyk said, adding, however, that "private sponsorship stands today behind the most interesting cultural, academic and social projects and it’s a source of pride for me to be able to promote Polish culture".
Grażyna Kulczyk is the first art collector from Central Europe to have been invited by the Santander Foundation to show a part of her individual collection at the institution's gallery.
The exhibition is one of the largest displays of contemporary Polish art in the West in many years. The show run until 15 June. (mk/nh)
