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.
