The “Expand” series continues! On Saturday, 17th October in Galeria Labirynt | Plaza opening of the second edition of the exhibition takes place. This time Monika Zadurska-Bielak, Adam Oroń and Sławomir Toman are going to present their works. They are going to be offered for purchase as previously.
The second edition of the exhibition “Expand” is coming. Its main idea is to present the work of artists associated with Lublin. The cycle was created as a result of the difficult time of the pandemic and the reflection it awakened on the importance of community and localities. The pandemic time turned out to be a time full of fear for oneself and for the loved ones, which is why the authors of the exhibition changed the previously adopted perspective of perception and shifted their attention from what is in the future to what is here and now. Deciding to focus on our immediate surroundings, we give Lublin artists the space of Galeria Labirynt | Plaza. The “Expand” series was opened in September by Edna Baud, Małgorzata Pawlak and Jakub Ciężki, who presented their latest painting works. In the second edition of the exhibition, the viewers are going to have the opportunity to see sculptures by Monika Zadurska-Bielak as well as paintings by Sławomir Toman and Adam Oroń. The works are also going to be available for purchase! Another edition of the exhibition in November.
