About

Connect: Katowice, curated by Oksana Smirnova and Pawel Mendrek, is a year-long collaboration between 35 artists divided into 13 groups or “Connections“, all aiming to show the audience how beneficial intercultural communication can be. It has a very broad target audience as the artists’ collaborations are investigating the subjects which address different layers of society, such as: Polish-British migration during the WWII and how it influenced those involved in the migration and their further generations or in other cases, studying each other’s lands, their hidden traces, and folklore. However, the main theme which can be highlighted is Identity and Communication.

The more general aim of Connect:Katowice is to create a discourse between the artist, the space and the audience, and survey the balance between what is outwardly-facing and what we keep to ourselves. The project will evolve via exchange and collaboration between British and Polish artists, and display involving a British-based and a Polish curators’ intercession. The experimental nature of the project is aimed to reflect the interconnection of the roles of artists and curators coming from very different backgrounds.
