lokal_30 is an art spot situated at the very core of Warsaw, on legendary Foksal Street, quite near a couple of local symbols of absurdity: the Palace of Culture and Science – a widely ridiculed monument of the Stalinist era, and a huge artificial palm tree by Joanna Rajkowska installed at the crossroads of two of Warsaw’s main streets. Warsaw has been a city of paradoxes, and lokal_30, an independent gallery that aims to stir up our culture, has persistently tried to comment on those contradictions. lokal_30 represents artists who relate in their work to the reality around them: to mass culture, to social issues, or to the absurd as it arises in modern life. On the other hand, it represents a group of artists who have consciously chosen the tradition of modernism – deeply rooted in Polish art – as their source of inspiration. The gallery’s program has often featured the most diverse attitudes in confrontation with one another. However, artists who collaborate with lokal_30 are bound together by their awareness of operating in a specific, common cultural context, as well as by their feeling of a constant need to raise objections.
