MOCAK is embarking on a series of exhibitions showing the oeuvres of artists who live and work in Krakow. These presentations will encompass a variety of media. The series is inaugurated with a show of artists born between 1980 and 1990. In our next presentations, we shall be showing the previous generations of Krakow artists. For 2017, we are planning a presentation of artists born in the 1970s.

[...] The artists born in the 1980s decade entered the art world unencumbered by the baggage of the previous political regime; instead, they had more awareness of the capitalist world and market mechanisms. Their works don’t show social and political involvement, so prominent in the works of artists of the 1960s generation. These young artists seem to be more interested in metaphysical and psychological exploration, based on creating ‘camouflaged’ representations of character and on creating original painterly techniques.
