As part of our trip to Warsaw to cover the exhibition A Few Grams of Red, Yellow, Blue. New Romanian Art at the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle CSW in Warsaw (Poland), we had the chance to speak with the director of the CSW, Fabio Cavallucci. In this video, he provides us with a short introduction to the Centre For Contemporary Art.
The Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle’s goal is to evolve as a new type of cultural institution in which various fields of art coexist and interact. The Center sees itself as a space for artistic exploration, research, laboratories, workshops, and experiments than remain a traditional exhibition space.
Fabio Cavallucci has been the director the the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle since 2010. He is the first foreigner to become a head of a Polish art institution. Prior to his position at CSW he was the director of the Municipal Gallery of Trento (Italy), and of the Biennale of Contemporary Sculpture in Carrara (Italy). Together with Hedwig Fijen and Andreas Hapkemeyer he managed the international team that organized the 2008 European Biennial of Contemporary Art, Manifesta 7 in Trentino – Alto Adige, Italy.
