Multiannual experience of Laznia CCA in the field of art in public space
The Centre for Contemporary Art Laznia manages the project being a part of a broader scope of works aiming at revitalisation of the Lower Town and New Port districts, of areas abundant in historical edifices but at the same time isolated from the centre and degraded. The programme of The Outdoor Gallery of The City of Gdansk is anticipated as a long-term plan and is supposed to build up a permanent collection of works of art in urban space and to realize artistic events, interventions, concerts and a broad range of educational activities. Urban space will be developed through years and the projects assigned for realisation will be chosen in regularly announced, closed, international competitions. All of these activities are supposed to initiate changes of the character of the district where Laznia is based and to make the area more attractive for the visitors.
In the framework of the exhibition presented at Art Platform „Vorota” in Kaliningrad CCA Laznia wishes to share its experience in the field of art in public space and to show the most significant realisations of the previous years as well as the awarded artworks waiting to be realized in the area of the Lower Town district in the near future.
