Interview with Piotr Drewko, founder of the gallery Wschód in Warsaw

Piotr Drewko opened his gallery in 2017 because he believes that in art what we see depends on what we know and Piotr Drewko wanted to know more. Before the gallery settled down permanently in Warsaw it had been a project space, with curatorial projects taking place in selected locations across Europe. A strain of this idea remains in the gallery’s work: Along with the roster of artists Piotr Drewko represents there are also a number of artists he frequently collaborates with.
