Festival Opening – Królikarnia Palace on 22 June at 21.00

We invite you to the opening of On Art 2018! The first screening will take place on June 22 at 21.00 in the garden of the Museum of Sculpture Xawery Dunikowski in Królikarnia Palace, Warsaw, ul. Puławska 133a.

We will see 3 films. First, a 7-minute Canadian video art “Chant for the Power 100” from 2017, dir. Bill Burns – a list of 100 personalities of the art market by Art Review Magazine in the choral version. Then a 10-minute Ukrainian documentary from 2018 “Mnema” dir. Katerina Balabay – about removing and destroying soviet monuments. At the end we will see an 80-minute Chilean documentary “Robar a Rodin” (Stealing Rodin, 2017), dir. Cristobal Valenzuela Berrios. The film presents the biggest artistic scandal in the history of Chile: the stealing of Auguste Rodin’s masterpiece. Who was behind the kidnapping, how it was found and what motivated the thieves – it’s the best art-gangster story ever!
