The Foksal Gallery Foundation
The Foksal Gallery Foundation was founded in 1997 with the aim to protect the collections and traditions of the Foksal Gallery and widen the scope of activities of the gallery. It is noteworthy for its promotion of new artistic projects, publishing, and academic activities.
Initially based within the Foksal Gallery, the Foksal Gallery Foundation moved in 2001 to Górczewska Street and now operates as an independent business. Currently, it is focused on initiating and supporting artistic projects (exhibitions, concerts, films, publications), which often take place outside the gallery as a part of the public space. The characteristic window view on the Palace of Culture and Science is often the inspiration for the art work created in the Foksal Gallery Foundation, which can be seen in Oskar Hansen and Olafur Eliasson's work.
The Foundation is associated with artists including: Paweł Althamer, Cezary Bodzianowski, Piotr Janas, Katarzyna Józefowicz, Robert Kuśmirowski, Edward Krasiński, Anna Niesterowicz, Wilhelm Sasnal, Monika Sosnowska, Jakub Julian Ziółkowski, Artur Żmijewski.
The Foundation is directed by Andrzej Przywara in cooperation with Adam Szymczyk, the present Kunsthalle director in Basel.
