The SURVIVAL Art Review – one of the largest reviews of art in public space in Poland – is calling for entries.
Held in Wroclaw for the 16th time, The SURVIVAL Art Review is an artistic event that for 15 years has been intended to present contemporary art in the urban space of Wrocław. Each year the festival is held in a different place. The selected venues are buildings or public spaces, forgotten, abandoned or neglected, suspended between the former glory and the uncertain future.
The 16th edition of the Review will take place in the classical palace of the Wallenberg-Pachaly family. Designed in the 18th century by Carl Gotthard Langhans, it combined residential and representative functions. The first floor was a luxury residence, while the ground floor was the seat of Commerzbank, a commercial banking enterprise. After 1945 the edifice was adapted to serve as a library and administrative centre of the University of Wrocław. In 2013 it was put out of use and offered for sale.
Due to the palace's history, the former function and the current value (as a cultural and financial asset), the motto and subject of this year's edition of the Review is Capital (understood in economic terms, but also as human, intellectual, symbolic or political capital). We invite visual artists to submit ideas for artworks made in different media that would be connected with the theme Capital and the context of the venue.
Deadline for proposals - 15 April, 2018. Submission information is available at www.survival.art.pl
