The gal­lery will be closed from Satur­day, August 6th through Monday, August 22nd



In the rear of the buil­ding in Wspolna street, where the Raster Gal­lery is located, in the place of an old yard and today non-​existent annexes, one can find a remar­kable, half-​wild garden – a miraculous, quaint oasis of greenery in the very heart of high-​density housing of cen­tral Warsaw. This summer the place relives its renais­sance not only due to the vegetation of plants, but also thanks to modern art. In the shadow of ripe chest­nuts and jasmine trees, we are deligh­ted to present specially com­mis­sioned works of out­stan­ding artists of established and emer­ging artists The Sculp­ture Garden of the Raster Gal­lery is a public place, which serves as a space where one can regulate one’s breath and mind as well as find a source of unobvious, artistic epiphanies.

Warsaw is a won­der­fully green city – full of trees, parks or abun­dant in greenery squares. In her shadow modern art appears with volatile luck. In Wola, one can discover intriguing relicts from the Sculp­ture Bien­nale in Metal from 1968. Moreover, from 2009 at the instigation of Pawel Althamer and under protec­tion of the Museum of Modern Art, a Sculp­ture Park emer­ges in the Brodno district. The idea of enrich­ment of the urban space through creating enc­laves which com­bine both live art and nature, has a long history. Our Raster Sculp­ture Garden evolves this con­cept into a new dimen­sion – a yard, a home garden, a visit in the neigh­bour­hood, a moment of relaxation and reflec­tion in the middle of a hot, urban day. It’s a com­pletion of the two-​decade old con­cept of art as a natural, sup­por­ting, and inspiring element of the social environment.

In autumn of 2021 we were pleased to inaugurate the Raster Sculp­ture Garden by presen­ting works and per­for­man­ces by Oskar Dawicki, Dominika Olszowy, and a col­lec­tive, Slavs and Tatars. This year we are thril­led to present works of Olaf Brzeski, Michal Budny and Dominika Olszowy accom­panied by two special Ukrainian guests –
Yuriy Biley and Mar­haryta Rieznik. This time as a special treat, we are deligh­ted to offer lemonade com­posed by a renow­ned Warsaw chef, Alek­san­der Baron.
