SHOWOFF SECTION 2013 Photomonth_kropki_duze

The hugely popular ShowOFF Section is aimed at young Polish artists at the outset of their careers, for whom this often marks the first opportunity for professional work on an individual exhibition and a chance to present their art to an international festival audience numbering in the thousands.


This part of the programme is made up of 10 exhibitions of young artists selected in an open competition from a record number of applications. The winners – Kaja Dobrowolska, Yurko Dyachyshyn, Anna Kieblesz, Aleksandra Loska, Piotr Macha, Sergey Melnitchenko, Ondřej Přibyl, Dominik Ritszel, Alexandra Soldatova and Milena Soporowska – were chosen by a jury made up of Kuba Bąk, Bownik, Dorota Buczkowska, Cecylia Malik and Marika Zamojska, who were guided by the need for new phenomena in contemporary photography and valued coherence of projects. The artists are now working with the curators on the final selection of works and on choosing the presentation and place of the exhibition.


“On top of applications from Poland, the curators were also presented with photographs from neighbouring countries, resulting in two people being chosen from Ukraine and one each from Belarus and the Czech Republic. Although the dominant medium in the competition was photography, three projects using video art were also selected,” explains ShowOFF Section coordinator Piotr Sikora.


The 2013 ShowOFF Section Jury (Dorota Buczkowska, Marika Zamoyska, Paweł Bownik, Kuba Bąk and Cecylia Malik) chose the Laureates from amongst the biggest ever number of entries. In May in galleries in various points of Krakow

will present their exhibitions due to the ShowOFF Section.
