GALERIA URBAN FORMS 2013

The fundamental idea of this project is to create a permanent exhibition of street art in the public space in the city centre of Lodz. Exhibition, in majority, will be composed of large format pictures painted directly on side elevations of tenement houses in the city centre of Lodz. They will be created by prominent representatives of large format painting from all around the world. In the upcoming years project is going to expand with other street art objects like sculpture, installation, street jewellery etc. In the end, within few years, a gallery of several dozen exhibits will be created. It will be possible to visit exhibits on foot within few hours. Considering the fact that location of the gallery is going to be a public space, we would like to make it attractive for each and every citizen of Lodz, not only for those directly connected to street art or with art in general. That is why we want to focus on emphasizing artistic aspects, leaving conceptual projects as they might become unclear for the recipients. Furthermore, we would like to present as extensive and diverse palette of artistic conceptions as possible through an appropriate choice of artists. We do not intend to restrict artists to any one theme, retaining standard and fundamental ethical, political and moral issues, that function in every society.

As for now, it consists of 30 large format paintings, murals, created directly on the side wall elevations of buildings placed in the city centre. They form an artistic trail open to everyone: citizens and tourists.

The gallery is situated in a unique architecture of Lodz city centre with blank walls along main streets. It also refers to cultural heritage in the form of numerous and well preserved advertisement murals created between 1960 and 1980. Because of this, Lodz becomes an important centre of street art in Poland and in the world.
