22nd–25th October
Do Studzienki 24 St
Gdansk Wrzeszcz
GALERIA GDANSK ITD. is a museum working as a shop. Or a shop working as a museum. GALERIA GDANSK ITD. shows a selection of objects designed to tell unheard or invisible narrations given by a group of Gdansk citizens, the ‘tellers’. Narrations about autobiographical turning points, personal revolts, slow realizations and self-healing decisions, ‘etcetera’, ‘I  tak dalej’. Collectively they propose a ‘counter-‘portrait of the city of Gdansk.

GALERIA GDANSK ITD. offers its clients the opportunity of choosing among the selection of limited edition objects the ones they would like to take into their everyday life places. In this way, these so-called *marginal* narrations enter families, offices and friendship networks infiltrating the official one.

GALERIA GDANSK ITD. opens its doors in Do Studzienki 24 between the 22nd and 25th of October. Beside the collection of narrations, it hosts a series of public talks, performances, and concerts. Between October 23rd and 25th you may visit us everyday from 12 am. In November the collection leaves the GALERIA to tour the city.

Simone Basani and Alice Ciresola (IT/BE) are an artist and curator duo currently in residency at CCA  Łaznia. They create collective services and educational devices for communities and cultural institutions. For their residency they are working on transcultural and transhistorical narrations conceived by and for Gdansk citizenship, on the border between the museum and the public spaces.

Basani and Ciresola are developing their residency in the frames of the international project “Artecitya”, financed by the European program Creative Europe 2014-2020.
