Our carefully picked recommendations for the coming week in Warsaw:

new season at Multimedia Fountain Park

The seventh edition of the Multimedialny Park Fontann will start on May 1st at Podzamcze. Watch the subsequent shows every Friday and Saturday at 9 pm. Warsaw multimedia fountains are located in an enchanting place near the Old Town and the Vistula. Up to 30 thousand litres of water a minute stream out of 367 nozzles. The streams are lit with colourful light from nearly 300 LED reflectors. In time intervals, impressive laser animations appear on the mist from nebulised water. In front of spectators' eyes, the Mermaid climbs down the monument, swims under the Świętokrzyski Bridge and hits the town in a Warszawa car. The shows are accompanied by music, both classical (Chopin) and pop, such as Lady Gaga or Jean Michel Jarre. The Multimedia Fountain Park comprises two fountains: the main one, with area of over 2 200 sq m, and the line fountain, with the length of 120 metres, called the water organ. Children can play in a nearby water playground (the so-called pluskowisko), whose area totals 140 sq m.

Ariadne Abandoned by Theseus

The Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden will display the painting ‘Ariadne Abandoned by Theseus’ by Angelika Kauffmann at the Royal Łazienki Museum in Warsaw. The work will appear on loan there from 1 May to 30 July 2017 as the result of a partnership between the SKD, the Hamburger Kunsthalle, and the Royal Łazienki Museum. This exhibition of one painting was arranged under the honorary patronage of Rolf Nikel, German ambassador to Poland. Statement by Marion Ackermann, Director-General of the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden: ‘Angelika Kauffmann embodies the idea of Europe quite early in the 18th century in an exceptional manner. She was one of the most sought-after female artists of her time, was fluent in four languages, and felt equally at home...ss.’ Angelika Kauffmann addressed the myth of Ariadne on numerous occasions in her oeuvre. The painting from Dresden shows the moment when Ariadne awakes on Naxos and notices in despair that she has been abandoned by her beloved Theseus. This image stands out among Kauffmann’s depictions of Ariadne for its drama and expressiveness. In Warsaw the painting will enter into a dialogue with Kauffmann’s ‘Portrait of Giuliana Pubblicola Santacroce as Lucretia’ (1791) from the collection of the Royal Łazienki Museum.
