“Friend of a Friend” is a gallery–share initiative launched in 2018 with editions in Warsaw and Berlin. This year’s Warsaw edition will involve nine most-active galleries based in Poland’s capital, who will share their exhibition spaces with sixteen international gallery guests. One of the aims of the project is to create a different model for the presentation of contemporary art, to establish new networks within the Polish art scene and to enable local audiences to interact with the works of international artists, whose works were often not exhibited in Poland so far.
Thanks to the joint initiative of the founders and organisers of “FOAF”, the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw and its Society of Friends of the Museum, the “Friends Art Fund” was founded – an award allowing for the acquisition of a selected work presented within the Warsaw edition of “FOAF” for the collection of the Museum of Modern Art. In 2019, thanks to the generous support of the sponsor, the award will be presented for the second time.
