THE OUTDOOR GALLERY OF THE CITY OF GDAŃSK – OPENING OF THE LKW GALLERY

The Outdoor Gallery of the City of Gdansk – Opening of LKW Gallery – 24 June 2008

LKW Gallery by Lex Rijkers and Daniel Milohnic is the winning project of the first edition of the International Competition of The Outdoor Gallery of the City of Gdansk in 2005. A lorry stuck under the overpass by Szopy Street symbolizes the isolation of the Lower City from the Centre by the viaduct and emphasizes the social and mental differences of the two neighbouring places. Locating LKW Gallery in the public space will facilitate greater integration of the local society, education of children and realizing a number of artistic and social projects activating the citizens. LKW is to become easily accessible, alternative cultural center – a place for workshops, exhibitions, film projections, and other forms of cultural and artistic activity.
