All the auctioned works will be on display at the pre-auction exhibition at the Museum on the Vistula River in Warsaw.

The charity auction Refugees Welcome and the preceding exhibition are solidarity gestures through which the artistic community supports refugees living in Poland.

Thanks to the commitment and openness of the artists, as well as the accompanying galleries and collectors associated with the Society of Friends of the MSN, a cross-sectional exhibition will open at the Museum on the Vistula River in late September/early October that juxtaposes the work of multiple generations of female and male artists, different themes and creative strategies in a non-obvious way.

The earliest works donated to the auction date from the early 1970s, and a significant number of those invited to contribute have prepared new paintings, drawings or sculptures with this event in mind. Historical works will therefore be juxtaposed with the most current ones. Although by design this cross-sectional show is devoid of a linear narrative, it is possible to see a set of themes or creative attitudes representative of the art world today.

The Refugees Welcome charity art auction will be held on Sunday, 5 November 2023, at 4:00 pm, and the proceeds will go to the Ocalenie Foundation. The artists included in the auction may receive 25% of the sale price of their works, but many of them have waived this right, passing on the entire proceeds to the foundation
