For the sixth time, the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, the Friends of the Museum, and Ocalenie Foundation invite you to the Refugees Welcome charity art auction, the income from which will be earmarked for assistance to refugees.

This year’s auction is special for many reasons. For the first time, the pre-auction exhibition will open at the Museum on the Vistula, the main exhibition space of the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, and will last over a month (8 April – 15 May 2022). It will comprise works provided by artists as well as works broadening the narrative of contemporary migrations. Also for the first time, the exhibition will be accompanied by a programme of events focusing on the activity of the Ocalenie Foundation, as well as numerous guided tours. Works by more than 70 artists from Poland and abroad will be sold at the auction.

The proceeds will be devoted to two programmes effectively pursued by the Ocalenie Foundation for years: Refugees Welcome Poland, which connects refugees with people in Warsaw willing to share their homes with them, and the Help Centre for Foreigners, which assists refugees in finding work, and offers legal and psychological assistance as well as Polish language classes.
All Refugees Welcome!
