The Artistic Schools Review entitled ‘infinite set’ is a new initiative of the Strzemiński Academy of Fine Arts Łódź. It is a competition addressed to young artists from all art academies in Poland. The event
is a part of this year’s edition of Fotofestiwal.
The theme of the International Festival of Photography in Łódź 2022 is COMMUNITY, and that is why contemporary communities associated with higher education institutions will hold a special place in the programme of the event. The main concept of the organizers was to exhibit works created collectively. However, works of individual artists who involved other participants in their projects and made community their main theme were also included.
The competition works will be presented for the first time on 09.06.2022 at the ‘infinite set’ exhibition
in the Academic Design Centre (13/15 Księży Młyn Str.). The winning project, selected in a public poll, will receive the Prize of the Rector of the Strzemiński Academy of Fine Arts Łódź.
The online poll will start on 09.06.2022, 5 pm and will last until 25.06.2022, 6 pm. The results will
be published at www.asp.lodz.pl on 26.06.2022.
