exhibition from the Project Room series

The Tarta Collective


The Tarta Collective exhibition is the fifth in the {Project Room} 22/23 series of presentations of the work of young artists, who were offered the chance to organise an individual exhibition at one of the most important contemporary art institutions in Poland.

The series was inaugurated in October with an exhibition by Konrad Dobrucki and followed by exhibitions of Daniel Dąbrowski, Jagoda Stączek and Zuzanna Srebrna’s work. In the 2022/2023 edition of the Project Room, we will also present the works of Agata Żołądź-Yolik Nal.

All artists were selected, following an open call, by a jury composed of: Krystyna Różańska-Gorgolewska, curator of the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art (chairperson); Stanisław Brach, professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw; Rafał Łubowski, professor at the University of Arts in Poznań; and Grzegorz Wnęk, professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków.

Tarta Collective was established in May 2021. Its founder is Angelika Gad (Cebula) and members include: Kinga Bożkiewicz, Sebastian Duran, Iga Filimowska, and Jakub Ciosińsk, graduates of the Faculty of Art of the Pedagogical University in Kraków. Kamil Józefko is responsible for all programming, and Adam Grygierzec for sound. The group’s belongs to the genre of interactive art. Their first and main project is the web doc “Overgrowth” carried out together with the Interactive Narratives and UX vnLab Studio.
