Center for Contemporary Art, Warsaw

Tel: 48 22 625 0522's insider take:

The Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw's southern park district is home to a vibrant museum centered on living Polish artists. With no permanent collection, it's impossible to guess what will be on display from year to year, but a general emphasis on video and photography seems to be consistent. Recent exhibitions included a reinterpretation of Le Corbusier's mass housing projects by multiple artists, including film and photographic reconstructions. Like this exhibit, others tend to center on the intersection of Western European ideas and Polish experience. The museum occupies three floors of the castle, and while its emphasis on video can be overwhelming, it's a compelling, fascinating look at an increasingly vibrant art scene.

Open Tuesdays through Sundays 11 am to 7 pm.
