1. Oddities – Haute couture by UAP
Atrium UAP, building B
All those interested in fashion and theatrical costume are invited to a show of forms of clothing and costume entitled Oddities. Semester papers and diploma works by students of the Department of Fashion will be presented. The peculiarity of the show results from the richness and diversity of responses to the topics addressed by young designers.
The event will be unique, because full-scale fashion shows in our city are extremely rare, so it is an undeniable opportunity to experience live fashion theater. Three studios, i.e. the Studio of Clothing Design, the Studio of Unique Clothing and the Studio of Theater Costume operating within the Department of Fashion at the Faculty of Interior Design and Scenography are a guarantee of a high level of work and original solutions.
Music: Siema Ziemia
UAP Courtyard, buildings A/B
Fascinating visuals and a multimedia concert by the jazz band Siema Ziemia. Both the space surrounding the viewer and the musicians will become an object and an integral part of the mapped courtyard of the University of Arts Poznań. The method of developing the visualization and the film layer will closely correspond with the melancholic and sometimes avant-garde sound of the music. The subject of the visualization will be the search for the kinetics of images in animation, i.e. pure poetry for the eyes. The immersive experience of the viewer, surrounded by a new, created artistic space will leave room for reflection on time, space and technology. In this context, it is the line and expressiveness, both visual and narrative, that take the viewer into the created artistic space.
3. Exhibition of Studio of Art in Intercultural Perspective
Opening at 19:00
Aula, 1 floor, building A
Within the framework of the studio, all topics located on the borderline, uncomfortable, thought-provoking and current ones are taken up. Recognizing the complexity of interpersonal and interspecies relations, we encourage you to carefully look at the world and yourself in the world.
As part of this year’s slogan “Let’s unite”, we point to various processes, including the need to notice the fact that we are not the only inhabitants of the planet, that we function as components of a larger, cosmic whole.
The described deterritorialization guarantees a unique aesthetic experience for the viewer.
An exhibition is for everyone who has the courage to ask difficult questions and is ready to travel to the farthest corner of the world and into him/herself.

6. Monotype workshops within the frames of the Night of Museums
20.05.2023 / 16:00–20:00
Monotype is an artistic graphic technique. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that only one unique print is made.
During the workshop, everyone will be able to try his or her hand at this technique. Under the supervision of artists from the “Defiguration” Science Club, you will be able to perform the individual stages of creating a matrix, and then use it to prepare your own print.
The workshop will take place in front of the Śluza Gallery
Hosted by Julia Białas, Daria Antkiewicz and Aleksandra Czarnota from the Scientific Circle “Defiguration”
