Polish artist, activist, and curator Roman Dziadkiewicz is the current SPACES World Artists Program resident in Cleveland. SWAP is designed to give visiting artists the time and opportunity to create new work and interact with the Northeast Ohio community. During his six-week residency, Dziadkiewicz has been daring the community to explore the bond between socio-political activism and art. With previous projects like Kidnapping of the Curator and Switzerland in the Middle East, the exhibition of his current project promises to be equally challenging, based as it is not only on his favorite childhood book, Robinson Crusoe, but on local and global social and political issues as well.
The project is realized with major support from the Ohio Arts Council, which funds international residencies through a grant from the US Department of Education; it is realized in cooperation with the Polish Cultural Institute in New York and A-I-R at the Centre for Contemporary Art "Ujazdowski Castle", Warsaw, Poland, as part of the POLAND-U.S. ARTISTS-IN-RESIDENCE EXCHANGE PROGRAM.
