Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art was established as a self-governed institution of culture, organized and financed by the city of Gdańsk, Poland. Many projects are also sponsored by the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage and by the National Cultural Centre in Warsaw.
A place that presents today’s contemporary Polish and foreign art, Laznia is the most recognizable exhibiting institution in the Tricity area of Poland. It shows what is best in art—its variability, energy, and bravery.
The gallery showcases various trends in contemporary art, whose multiple aspects are the subjects of talks at our educational programs. Laznia is open to discussions between the audience and artists, continuing the process of cooperation with the local community. Apart from mainstream exhibitions, Laznia holds numerous concerts, film presentations, meetings, and discussion panels, as well as artistic and music workshops.
