SZEWSKA consists of nine double-sided display windows located on Szewska Street (the section between Kotlarska and Nożownicza streets).
The gallery shows an average of eight exhibitions per year, both original ones and prepared in cooperation with external entities.
The Szewska Pasja Street Gallery was established in 2010. Since 2011, the project has been co-financed by the Municipality of Wrocław. The gallery was founded by Julia Janowska. In the first year of its functioning, it was curated by Ewa Kaszewska, and in 2011–2020 by Tomasz Broda. In 2021, the gallery was taken over by the Art Transparent Foundation.
The mission of the gallery under the curatorship of the Art Transparent Foundation is to present and popularise the most interesting phenomena in young Polish contemporary art while drawing on the traditions of the local avant-garde. This is why exhibitions featuring the works and profiles of the youngest artists are intertwined with presentations of the achievements of doyens associated with the former State Higher School of Fine Arts (now – Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław), the Wrocław Group and the Wrocław ‘70 Visual Arts Symposium.
SZEWSKA is closely associated with another important exhibition and educational project of the Art Transparent Foundation – the Mieszkanie Gepperta contemporary art gallery.
Project co-financed by the Department of Culture of the Wrocław City Hall.
