ABOUT THE FOUNDATION
The Common Arts Foundation was established in 2021 as a maturing over years expression of the need to create space by collectors and also directed at them as well as to undertake activities that go beyond the mere collection of works of art.
The premises of the foundation is a place open to all art enthusiasts. Our primal objective is to facilitate and expand access to culture and art. We strive to remove material, territorial and time limitations restricting the possibility of contact with art through exhibition, animation, educational and publishing activities based on open access to the content on the Internet.
All actions of the Common Arts Foundation will be fully published on the Internet, so that our activities can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
A series of events, meetings, conferences, and exhibitions related to the presentation of the artistic achievements of the most outstanding Polish and the most interesting foreign artists will be organised together with creating the collection within the Foundation.
An important activity of the Foundation is the organisation of exhibitions based on the research issues and their development through lectures, meetings with experts, scientific sessions and conferences. Art collections from private collections in Poland will contribute to building the narrative.
