Event details:

2-4 p.m.: Microinvasion workshop - Big ones, small ones! Come to construct a small object that may serve as a fridge magnet ...or as a ...? Well, you can take your object home and decide for yourselves. All the materials will be provided in the ARTPUNKT studio. Admission free!
P.S. Should the studio get overcrowded, you may visit the ARTPUNKT building for a few minutes and then return to take part in the workshop.

2-5 p.m.: Book swap - You've got lots of books at home and wouldn't mind offering a few to someone else as winter reads? Maybe a Sienkiewicz is lying in a corner in your flat while a secondary school student badly needs it? Or perhaps you've got some interesting hobby magazines? Come to the Gallery's reading room (ARTPUNKT building), swap books with others and meet avid readers! 

5 p.m.: Curator-guided tour of the ‘97' exhibition - Have you seen one of the most important exhibitions of 2017 displayed at the Gallery? If not, join us for a guided tour with Łukasz Kropiowski. The exhibition features collective work of Radek Szlaga, Tomasz Mróz, Greg Gonsior and their teacher from the College of Fine Arts in Opole - Zbigniew Natkaniec. It constitutes a kind of homage to an inspiring master from Opole, but also, leaving the convention behind, a kind of an artistic confrontation

6 p.m. : star of the evening - Sorja Morja band. Although they seldom reside in the same country, Ewa Sadowska and Szymon Lechowicz have successfully performed as a band since 2013. Currently, the group is inspired by pop, post-punk and conceptualism. Sorja Morja takes its music, lyrics and music videos as seriously as life. We will hear, among others, tracks from Sorja Morja's debut album, recorded in 2015 and 2016. "Sorja" consists of ten short compositions - minimalist in arrangement, but abounding in content. The band's performance will feature Małgorzata Penkalla.


Between 10.00 a.m.-6 p.m. the Gallery's main exhibition halls will stage the ‘97' exhibition and the Annex Gallery will feature the ‘THIS IS NOT THE REAL LIFE' exhibition. Admission free!

An opportunity to visit the ARTPUNKT building (the Gallery's archives, guest rooms, terrace) between 2-5 p.m.

Take a selfie on the ARTPUNKT's terrace with a panorama of Opole!
