X AYS | November-December 2014, Pl. Trzech Krzyży 10/14, Warsaw | Art Yard Sale – winter edition
„To nie tylko targi. To nie tylko wystawa. To coś zdecydowanie więcej. Art Yard Sale to estetyczny majstersztyk, to dwudniowe spotkanie nowoczesnej sztuki z zapierającą dech w piersiach architekturą.” — Gazeta Wyborcza
ART YARD SALE
Art Yard Sale is a unique art fair based in Warsaw, Poland.
The Art Yard Sale already has an impressive track-record and weaves together all aspects of contemporary art: graphics, illustration, painting, photography, design and fashion.
Art Yard Sale is designed to unite all aspects of contemporary art: graphics, illustration, painting, photography, design and fashion.
The Art Yard Sale provides a unique opportunity to meet and talk with designers as well as buy works by Poland’s most talented artists – both young talent and high-calibre names in the art scene.
For two days, the artists will move their studios and boutiques to the AYS venue.
We want to remind people that the essence of art lies in its social presence.
Art Yard Sale helps designers reach a broader audience.
We want the artworks to be seen by a mass audience and to find their way into private homes instead of being confined to galleries or left to hibernate in museums and bank stocks.
The huge success of the last two editions of Art Yard Sale proved that contemporary art can be incorporated into everyday life and become available for everyone.
We want the Art Yard Sale to – and long last – pin Warsaw on the artist map of Europe.
Art Yard Sale is a platform for cooperation among the participating artists as well between the artists and their audience.
