Artistic residencies are one of the key areas of Centre of Polish Sculpture’s activity. Each year Orońsko hosts many Polish and foreign artists. We also hold workshops, open-air meetings, seminars and exhibitions of contemporary art. Specialist studios of ceramic art, foundry, smithy and carpenter’s shop provide comprehensive services to artists and give them opportunity to produce many demanding projects. It all makes the Centre of Polish Sculpture a unique place compared with other centres dealing with contemporary art. Additionally, the programme of artistic residencies is an answer to the extremely difficult social situation of artists during the pandemic. Each year residencies focus on a theme selected by the curatorial team. We would like our artists in residence to base their activities first of all on the collaboration with the institution, local community and to fully use the potential of combining many domains of art and science. The programme assumes one-month-long study stays at the Centre of Polish Sculpture during which participants are able to receive full technical and substantive assistance. The description of the programme and ways of application are included in the pdf file.
Within the framework of the programme we offer:
The Centre of Polish Sculpture boasts remarkable exhibition spaces where each year the viewers can see over a dozen new exhibitions. Among others, these venues include historical buildings now serving as galleries: Orangery, Chapel and Józef Brandt’s Palace with its permanent historical exhibition, which often becomes a background for artistic interventions. The Sculpture Park where the first outdoor exhibitions were organized in the 1960s inspires artists to create projects focusing on ecology, public space and participatory activities. The largest exhibition space is the almost 700 m² main hall of the Museum of Contemporary Sculpture which has been adapted to display monumental objects. We would like to encourage you to make proposals of exhibitions and activities dedicated to our galleries.
