GOTHIC-STYLE POWER PLANT

Once the power hub of Silesia, today the Gothic red-brick Elektrownia industrial building is home to a contemporary art gallery showcasing the works of Polish artists. It was constructed at the turn of the 20th century by the outstanding Polish architect Józef Pius Dziekoński (1844-1927), the author of designs for many monumental public buildings in Europe. A characteristic element is the Gothic-style tower and the brick facade.

The power plant building is impressive due to its excellent architecture and the original machinery and equipment of the former power plant, preserved in excellent condition inside. The result of the recent revitalisation is the restoration of the building’s functions while providing the opportunity to obtain a rich cultural offer in the unique setting of the former power plant, including exhibitions of painting, graphics, sculpture, photography, music events and workshops.

In just a few years, the Elektrownia Contemporary Art Gallery has gained recognition as an important place on the cultural map of the region. At the same time, it is an increasingly recognisable object on the map of the Industrial Monuments Trail. Thanks to cooperation with the Academies of Fine Arts in Krakow and Katowice, the Institute of Art of the University of Silesia, the Association of Polish Visual Artists, the Association of Polish Art Photographers and many cultural institutions, the Gallery constantly develops its cultural activities.
