Many museums and galleries have had a recent “facelift” and they’ve gotten a new design, new exhibitions, new programs and… new visitors, and Królikarnia is one of those. Królikarnia added a wooden camera obscura in its backyard and a sweet small book cafe downstairs.
Additionally, new exhibitions draw younger and less arty (or only interested in sculpting) public. The finissage of Przetwory might be an example of that. Also new are the workshops (like for example sewing and knitting during the exhibition of Sara Lipska) and talks.
Named after a former rabbit warren, Królikarnia is a palace in Warsaw’s Mokotów district built in the classic style of the 18th century. Behind the building there is a great terrace, from which you can see much of Mokotów’s green. Also, works of Dunikowski are spread all over the garden and would be interesting to those of you who do not know the artist yet.
From 23 April until 6 August the exhibition will be “The Relation between Warsaw and Zakopane” in cooperation with The Tatra Museum in Zakopane. The exhibition tells a story about the cultural link between these two capitals: the political one (Warsaw) and the winter one (Zakopane).
Take the tram 1,4, 10, 14, 15, 18, 25, 35 and enjoy the ride through the beautiful Mokotów district.
