Dawid Radziszewski Gallery was established in 2013. Gallerist Dawid Radziszewski (b. 1984) is an art historian, independent curator, and the former owner-organizer of the Poznan-based independent art space Pies (Dog). Radziszewski and the majority of the represented artists are from the same generation: all born in the mid-1980s. He has worked with these artists long before the foundation of the gallery, often during the foundational studies of the artists. During the recent past, the gallery has expanded its focus to include programs devoted to forgotten aesthetics of the past, namely Polish plastic art of the 1960s and 70s, and select phenomena from the peripheries of contemporary art including television, artistic textiles, and graphic design. This interest has grown to encompass research into the Polish new age movement and Polish hippie scene – not as cool as the United States’ scene yet nevertheless quite exotic. The program of the gallery – in addition to shows featuring represented artists – consists of historical exhibitions intent on rediscovering interesting artists and phenomena from the history of Polish art, as well as international exhibitions.
Artists presented at Cosmoscow 2018: Joanna Piotrowska, Agata Bogacka, Tomasz Kowalski.
