BWA Warszawa Gallery was founded in January 2011. BWA Warszawa is a collective initiative of Justyna Kowalska (before curator of Le Guern gallery), Michał Suchora (co-founder of lokal_30 gallery), and Tomasz Plata (editor, author, lecturer at Theatre Academy in Warsaw). It is a private gallery that also executes non-commercial projects and operates in public space. Apart from exhibitions, BWA Warszawa organises lectures, as well as theatrical and performative happenings. The gallery name, that refers to the socrealist idea of covering the whole country with a net of Bureaus of Artistic Exhibitions (Biura Wystaw Artystycznych), is a deceitful recollection of times when art was a piece of a utopian social plan. We don’t maintain this utopia, but we do want to make it a subject of our reflection.
