The CONTACT POINTS exhibition presents works by 2nd and 3rd year students of Interdepartmental Doctoral Studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk. The doctoral students of the ASP in Gdańsk include visual artists, architects and designers. They are artists producing different forms of creative expression which can be displayed in galleries as well as used in the development of our living environment, where architecture and design play a crucial role. The joint classes provide an opportunity to come across interesting creative personalities from various branches of arts, and to exchange knowledge and experiences.

Despite the academic classification into fine arts and design arts, it appears that the division between these categories is not so clear.  The starting point of the exhibition was “Intermedia Chart” by Dick Higgins, showing the ambiguity of boundaries between different forms of modern art and the way they blend together. And since the most exciting things often happen at the point of contact between individual disciplines, that is what inspired the title of the exhibition.

The event will also feature site-specific works prepared especially for the exhibition, engaging in a dialogue with the unique interior of St. John's Centre.

Exhibiting artists: Iwona Cała, Thuy Duong Dang, Dorota Hebel-Łukiańska, Anka Leśniak, Diana Rönnberg, Gabriela Warzycka-Tutak, Iwona Zając, Jarek Bujny,  Urszula Dulewicz, Jan Giełda, Filip Ignatowicz, Martyna Jastrzębska, Robert Sochacki, Rafał Synowiec.

The exhibition will also offer the opportunity to see the photographic and film records of the PhD projects of former doctoral students at the ASP w Gdańsk, such as Dorota Nieznalska, Elżbieta Goldman, Katarzyna Swinarska and Katarzyna Podpora.
