Individualcreativevisits

The Centre for Sculptors’ Creative Work has at its disposal six sculpting ateliers, 64 m² each, common studio (200 m²) and four specialist workshops. The ateliers are rented to individual artists or groups. They have been adapted for round-the-year use. Each atelier contains a bathroom, double lodge, with internet connection. The specialist studios and workshops perform all kinds of craft services requested by artists. Our qualified staff are able to deal with any technological order, auxiliary to the sculpting art. On the premises you can also rent a variety of specialist equipment and tools.

Artistsin residence

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:

  • Remuneration
  • Covering the cost of realization of the project
  • Meetings with curators, art historians, artists
  • Access to library and archive resources
  • Technological assistance
  • Promotion of work and results of residency
  • Artists staying together with children are offered the care of qualified educators

Symposiumof ContemporarySculpture

The Symposium of Contemporary Sculpture is an international project inaugurated at the Centre in 2020. Each edition will be devoted to selected sites and local contexts. The participants – artists and students of art academies – will be chosen in an open-call mode. In the first edition, the agenda of the event involved practical workshops, exhibitions, lectures and discussion pertaining to urgent challenges of contemporary culture and the ways sculptors confront them. The project entails inviting specialists from various fields – artists, architects, urban developers, art critics and art historians, philosophers, anthropologists, lecturers and activists – to give lectures. It also assumes extending collaboration with representatives of self-governments responsible for the organization and planning of the public space.

InternationalPlatformof AcademicCooperation

International Platform for Academic Cooperation (MPWA) is an interdisciplinary project implemented by the Centre since 2015. MPWA is a vital point in the European dialogue between artistic academies. It aims at an exchange of artistic and educational ideas as well as integration of Polish and foreign academic circles. The initiative encompasses the following activities: practical workshops, lectures, meetings with theoreticians of art and outstanding artists, an exhibition and academic publication summarizing the event. So far the project has been attended by Polish art academies from Warsaw, Krakow, Gdansk, Wrocław, Lodz, Poznan, Toruń and foreign academies: University of Ostrava, The Hungarian University of Fine Arts in Budapest and Art Academy of Latvia from Riga.

Sculpturalworkshops

The Centre for Sculptors’ Creative Work provides possibilities of stay and work for organized groups of sculptors. It is an ideal place for education and work of art students, artistic associations and all artistic formal and informal groups. The staff and assistance of specialist technological studios will allow for realization of complex projects. The participants of outdoor workshops can use comfortable accommodation: the Sculptor’s House offers accommodation for 24 people in single, double, triple and 4-people rooms. The canteen can provide full board, while Café Art and Sculptor’s Club allow for artists’ daily meetings and exchange of experiences.

Proposean exhibition

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.
