Out of Sth


“OUT OF STH presents” is a simultaneous city scene with the “Out of Sth” quality mark, a continuation of the praised and awarded eponymous exhibition that was shown two years ago in Wrocław (“Out of Sth”, BWA Wrocław), which was the first international presentation of urban art in the context of the gallery approach to contemporary arts in Poland.

“OUT OF STH presents” covers four simultaneous, city-scattered stages devoted to one of the most specific and authentic phenomena in contemporary world culture – the artistic activities connected with urban art. The four distinct events are attempts at a redefinition of the most vital and unconventional creative work that examines the bright and dark sides of big-city street life in quest of an alternative to the omnipresent consumerist culture. Expect presentations of a dozen or so artists connected with this creative trend, accompanied by music, meetings, workshops and lectures, during which the artists will share their vision of life and the unique aesthetics of street art that has been drawing the attention of the general public, not only urban rebels, for quite some time now.

“OUT OF STH presents” exhibitions at the BWA galleries in Wrocław: Awangarda (M-city and {ths}) and Design (Hakobo) as well as mural artists from all over the world presenting their works on the walls round the city, as part of the “Breakin’ the Wall” project. Twenty years after the collapse of the Berlin Wall, the generation which grew up without the Cold War finally has its say.

The venue that has agreed to host this year’s OUT OF STH Nightclub – CRK– is an important and respected place on the map of independent Wrocław. It is the space for all kinds of musical, visual, film and miscellaneous forms, including more ephemeral events.
