About:

The NET is an art project consisting of performative actions, interventions and interactions at the Trade Fair Halls in Gdynia in collaboration with Halo Kultura Association.

Four artists and visual artists were invited to participate in the project: Monika Szpener, Alicja Nowicz, Dariusz Fodczuk and Łukasz Surowiec. The starting point for their realization will be Gdynia's Hale Targowe, both as an architectural object, a historical place, and, perhaps most importantly, an extensive and diverse social fabric, because it is people, their lives, businesses, needs and relationships that create this place.

During the next two months (May, June) artists will explore the space of the Hall and meet and interact with its users, and the effects of their work will be seen in July this year during Gdynia Design Days 2021.
