The Blue Point Art Gallery is to be a socially engaged gallery. We welcome artists who use visual language to conduct a discourse on issues important from the contemporary (local and global), perspective. We are looking for artists dealing with social and cultural topics (including aspects of identity and ethnicity), as well as counteracting racism and xenophobia. Preference will be given to issue-based approaches to exhibitions, where the artistic viewpoint operates not only through an aesthetic experience, but also as an important voice in social debate. An important part of the gallery’s activities will be to show the links between Polish and greater European culture as well as the diversity of local traditions.
The Blue Point Art Gallery (a virtual 3D gallery), was built in a digital environment as part of a collaboration between the Contemporary Literary and Artistic Culture Unit of the Institute of European Culture at the Polish University Abroad (PUNO) and the Culture Lab Foundation. Although the gallery was created in response to the changes resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic (March-July 2020), its founders have continued this work, with the intention of transferring part of their activities to the digital world. The current pandemic made us aware of the fragility of social structures and the deep need not only to seek unconventional solutions, but also to implement them quickly.
