The story of TRIANGEL (engl. Triangle) originated in year 2012, when the association Verein der Düsseldorfer Künstler gegr. 1844 got in touch with artists, graduates and professors from the art academy of Cracow for the first time.
Up to now the greatest realization of this artistic dialogue took place last year in august in Cracow: the Polish foundation Transport Kultury invited 16 German artists to come to Cracow and to participate in the Polish-German biennially CUBE.
It was a very exciting time, networks have been created and friendships have been struck up. And as everybody knows: friendships need to be cultivated.
In consequence members of VdDK 1844 decided to invite the Polish artists in the following year 2017 to Germany. With this idea the association made an approach to Polish Institute Düsseldorf and Kulturforum Alte Post in Neuss, to continue this art festival as a TRIANGEL.
The SITTart Gallery (VdDK 1844) shows a photographic documentation of the Polish-German exchange since 2012 and original artworks from the participants.
The Polish Institute Düsseldorf presents chosen works from all participating artists in five rooms, which enter into a dialogue with each other.
In Kulturforum Alte Post Neuss the artists have the chance to work together and to create installations, which will be presented at the opening.
Additionally the Polish artist Kamil Kuzko will realize a mural in Düsseldorf (Kavalleriestraße 66).
20 artists have been invited for this project (10:10):
