BWA Sokołowsko, or the gallery at the end of the world. After 8 years of co-managing (with Justyna Kowalska) the BWA Warszawa gallery, I decided, at least mentally, to move outside the big city. Hence the idea of launching a mini institution in Sokołowsko, located among the mountains, just 2 km from the Czech border, which will serve artists, writers, curators as an intimate space for creating, exhibiting art or simply relaxing. This year’s pandemic accelerated my plans. BWA Sokołowsko will be inaugurated with a post-residential exhibition by Jan Wolski and Konrad Żukowski.
