Somewhere now is the third exhibition presenting the works of selected scholarship holders of the Gaude Polonia program, created during the art residency in Poland from February until July. This year’s edition is attended by 11 scholarship holders who carry out their projects in Białystok, Katowice, Lublin, Łódź, Poznań, Wrocław and Warsaw. They include both well-known artists who, despite their young age, have already participated in important international artistic events (e.g. the Venice Biennale) as well as recent graduates of art schools. The Open Group collective, whose members took part in the Gaude Polonia program in recent years, was also invited to participate in the exhibition.

No subject or formal restrictions have been imposed on the artists, thanks to which the exhibition provides an overview of various artistic attitudes. The presented works are mostly new projects executed this year during the stay in Poland – video works, installations, objects, photo, performances. The exhibition is a draft in its character, as its aim is to present the effects of still-lasting residences – some of the exhibited works are projects in progress, while majority of works is presented for the first time at the Galeria Labirynt exhibition.
